Beginning December 3rd, hockey fans across Canada and around the world will have the opportunity to bid on the game-worn jerseys at www.hockeycanada.ca and www.ebay.ca. The auction will run for 10 days, closing on December 12th, just days before Canada names its roster for the 2008 IIHF World Junior Championship, to be held in Pardubice and Liberec, Czech Republic from to .

These eBay items are one of a kind and game worn by Team Canada’s players, and all items come with a letter of authenticity from Hockey Canada.

In addition to the game-worn jerseys, Hockey Canada will also be auctioning off a 1972-style jersey signed by every member of Canada’s team from the Canada/Russia Super Series. Canada wore the 1972-style just once, in Game 5 in Winnipeg on September 4th, the first time that jersey had been worn since the historic 1972 Summit Series.
