World Cup of Hockey Uniforms - CANADA ADDED

Recommended Posts

So my Tropics identity project and role in the WIHF project has taken a backseat to the HJC World Cup of Hockey Competition for a couple of days. I know a few other people have posted regarding that So I won't bore you with any details about it other than I did each team that was eligible for entries except for Russia. I just couldn't come up with anything that I really liked for them and I've seen a couple of other Russia entries in the contest and it'd be downright rude of me to even try to beat them.

So I'll post one or two of these a day to keep this going and get as many comments as I can. Just because I sent these in to HJC for the contest doesn't mean I'm not willing to change them up for display on my personal sites.

First up, the fine U S of A

Oversized yoke, Bold classic striping and numbers. Shield logo is based on the shield used in last year's Olympics. Maybe you can't see it but the shield features some subtle stars behind the "USA".

I like the lack of black here. I am enjoying this project overall.

Actually I never understood the use of black for Team Canada. Black never have been a national Canadian colour. Red, white, blue, green, even gold, but not black.

Why not try incorporating the Maple Leaf Tartan as design element?

Ok and why would I include that here?

Because it would be very hard to make that look good on a hockey jersey in my opinion and I really like what I did.

Exactly! Thank you!

I love the cleanliness and use of CCM jerseys here, no issues that I can see, great job.

also to touch on the black in Canada, I may be the minority but the way I see it is Russia was Red and White for the longest time and Canada was White and Red. Now that colour is usually the home jersey internationally, it makes sense to separate itself from Russia and Denmark now. I guess it doesn't matter now that Russia is RWB. Black was introduced in 1995 for both hockey and heavily in Rugby, it has also appeared in soccer here and there since late 90's, its also been the colours of Team Canada's Curling team. It's not like is a random colour like Purple, it been in use for quite some time and in my opinion it's been used well. Black pants on team Canada kinda had that relatable feeling for any Canadians who played hockey as a kid but never went anywhere with it. I don't know, thats just my opinion. But I do like it in Red, I have no problem with it, I honestly didn't like how much black was used in the last World Juniors. I just wanted to throw in my

Black, Red and White are the official colours of Hockey Canada, the national governing body that oversees all national teams.

The lack of C&C towards the Sweden set leads to believe everyone is speechless and it's amazing.

So I'll share Finland with you because you're all so kind.
