Canada gets new look for Olys

(FRANK GUNN / THE CANADIAN PRESS) TORONTO — It took until he stepped onto the ice at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton at the 1986 world junior championship for Joe Nieuwendyk to appreciate what it meant to wear a Team Canada jersey. “I didn’t really understand the magnitude of what it meant until that moment: skating out there in front of 19-20,000 people, flags flying everywhere,” Nieuwendyk said. “It was a special feeling.” Awestruck On Tuesday morning, he got to pass that feeling on to about a dozen teenage players chosen to model Hockey Canada’s 2014 Olympic jerseys at the official unveiling at the Mattamy Athletic Centre. Hockey Canada told them they’d be doing some promotional things, but the players didn’t learn exactly why they were at the arena until just before the event. ‘The best resource that we have in our country are our players and our people. This really respects where it all started back in 1920’ — Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson “Their mouths dropped, a little awestruck,” Nieuwendyk said. “They didn’t realize what they were here for. When they saw the jersey for the first time, it hit them like it hits any NHL guy that’s going to don that jersey.” For many hockey fans it wasn’t the first glimpse of the red, white and alternate black jerseys that the men’s, women’s and sledge hockey teams will wear at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi. Pictures of the uniforms have leaked out over the last month. But that didn’t damper the enthusiasm for the teenagers who stepped onto the ice amid club music and laser lights and skated around to show off the uniforms. “First to ever try on the Team Canada Olympic Jersey and unveil it to everyone. Speechless,” Paul Coffey’s son, Blake, wrote on Twitter afterward. “Honoured to get the opportunity to unveil the 2014 Team Canada Olympic Jersey Launch.” Hockey Canada’s reveal was another opportunity for fans to give their opinions about the jerseys. Some said it looked like Petro-Canada’s logo, while others wanted to go back to the jerseys used when Canada won gold in Vancouver in 2010.
