For over 100 years, the maple leaf has adourned Team Canada hockey jerseys in various sizes, shapes and colours. Hundreds of our Canadian men and women have donned the jersey to represent our country on the rinks around the globe.
This slide show is of the numerous Team Canada replica jerseys I have purchased over the years to build my collection. I am still looking for 3 or 4 of the older jerseys. They are hard to find and are expensive, but hopefully I will find them in my travels.
I have commented on each jersey. The wining team is noted.
Remember that on the ice or in life, keep your head up, stick on the ice and be safe.
Remember one of Sportswave’s Steve Erickson’s favourite sayings, “ if you can’t play a sport, at least be one”.
There are a lot more memories to come. Whether a win or a loss, cheer Team Canada on.
