The Canadian Hockey Association and NIKE/Bauer NIKE Hockey unveiled four new jerseys this fall, that pay tribute to past Canadian hockey heroes and teams.

The new version of the traditional ‘home' white and ‘away' red jerseys, which all teams will wear at international competitions, have the Canadian Hockey Association logo on the front and the heritage patch on each shoulder.

The patch takes on additional importance with the first time introduction of a third jersey, that Canada's Olympic Teams will use a limited number of times, and not until February 2002. This third jersey is a full red jersey with the heritage patch on the front of the jersey, and the CHA logo on both shoulders.

A fourth jersey, a fan's jersey, is a full black jersey with the heritage patch on the front of the jersey, and the CHA logo on both shoulders. This jersey will not be worn by any of
Canada's teams.

The heritage patch, a consistent mark for each of Canada's four new jerseys, recognizes the accomplishments and achievements of teams that have represented Canada internationally in both men's and women's hockey.

To purchase any of the "new look" jerseys, visit www.canadianhockey.ca, Sport Chek, Footlocker, Jersey City, River City Sports and major specialty jersey retailers across Canada, or call Breakaway, the official store of the CHA at 800-441-0449 or 888-248-8248.
