TORONTO -- Canadas hockey teams are getting a new look next season. Yellow Gerrit Cole Jersey . Hockey Canada unveiled new a jersey that will be worn by the mens, womens and sledge hockey
teams as the organization marks its 100th anniversary. Hockey Canada chief
operating officer Scott Smith introduced the jersey Wednesday at Torontos
MasterCard Centre. "Its a high performance jersey," Smith said. "It allows out
teams to pursue goal medals, of which we plan on bringing a few more home next
year." The new jersey, developed in partnership with Nike, uses traditional red,
white and black Hockey Canada colours. It features the Hockey Canada stickman
logo along with the 100th anniversary logo on its left chest areas. The sleeves
have two stripes each on their upper arms. "Canada" is spelled diagonally on the
front of the jersey, a style that makes a return after more than 40 years.
"There are some historical elements to this that you might be able to associate
with other jerseys that have been worn over the last 100 years," Smith said. The
jersey unveiling was part of a Hockey Canada event to kick off a cross-country
exhibition tour. It features a 1,900 square metre caravan with interactive
exhibits, including a timeline of hockey milestones. It also includes a
year-round artificial surface rink and a five-by-three-metre outdoor video
screen. The tour will officially begin in Ottawa July 1, and will is expected to
visit 100 communities before ending next May. Thirteen communities have been
scheduled to date: Toronto, Ottawa, Russell, Ont.; Kenora, Ont.; Kitchener,
Ont.; Thunder Bay, Ont.; Montreal, Brossard, Que.; Sherbrooke, Que.; Calgary;
Edmonton; Red Deer, Alta.; and Kamloops, B.C. The tour is partially funded by $3
million from the federal Department of Canadian Heritage through its Commemorate
Canada Program. Smith estimated the government funding comprises more than half
of the tours budget. Hockey Canada chairman Jim Hornell said the 100th
anniversary tour has four main goals. "Hockey Canada wants Canadians to play the
game. We want to engage communities," he said. "We want to leave a legacy, and
we want to educate Canadians about our great game." Hockey Canada was officially
formed in 1968 by the federal government, but it traces its roots to the
Canadian Amateur Hockey Association founded in 1914. The two organizations
merged in 1994. Minister of State for Sport Bal Gosal, who represented Canadian
Heritage Minister Shelly Glover at the event, said the national hockey teams
that won gold medals at the past two Winter Olympics are role models for all
Canadians. "National celebrations like this bring us together, strengthen
communities, and help Canadians take pride in the citizenship we all share," he
said. Matt Joyce Pirates Jersey . Minutes before the final whistle of Sporting Kansas Citys 3-0 victory over a shorthanded
