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.

My Bruce Hood Referee jersey
Hello all. With the air quality warning in the Lower Mainland, I stayed inside as recommended. I took the time in converting my sports and other collections into photos to continue bulding my virtual museum. Today I dug into the cupboard and brought out the different Team Canada Olympic clothing that I have. It was quite a challenge trying to the clothing to their zOlympic dates. I hope they bring back memories that you have of the Winter Olympics. See you in 2026 for the Milan & Corina d'Ampezzo Winter Games.
In this dangerous time everybody stay safe and stay healthy.
