New IIHF Canada Jerseys

Most likely it's a retro third. That logo is the logo of the old CAHA which ran the junior and women's programs before it's merger with the CHA to form Hockey Canada.

It says something about the marketing muscle of the world jr. hockey squad that it can regularly produce third and other alternate jerseys for use and sale. It's probably the richest jr. program of any sports organization anywhere in the world...

I'm surprised by the love for it. I'm remember that logo, and I was never enamoured by it. I deffinately perfer the old CHA logo that was in use at the time (hell I think I perfer the old 'exploding maple leaf' logo to the CAHA logo.) I look at the old video of the pre-merger woman's and junior's championships and think "Thank God for the Hockey Canada logo"...

Looks nice! What are the markings on the waist stripe?

I was wondering that myself. It looks like embossing similar to what was done inside the maple leaf for the Olympic team..

Edit: Just checked out the Hockey Canada website, and the jerseys aren't supposed to be unveiled until the 25th...

Hockey Canada Pre-Order: 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship Team Canada Jersey

Since it's supposed to represent the 30th anniversary of the program and assuming the photo above isn't a knockoff, I'm guessing the embossing is the logos of every championship that Canada took gold in...

I should have taken a closer picture, but yeah, the pattern on the bottom is similar to the iconography of the Olympic logo.

This shirt is interesting:

Never seen that logo be used before.

We'll have them up soon... both a better profile pic of the jersey and a close-up of the hem design. Just waiting on the man with the plan to upload 'em.

Wow, deffinately on the cool side. For those that don't know, it's hockey players taken from the various IIHF World Jr. Championship logos from the past 30 years mashed together into a single motif.

Excuse me while I go fap....
