CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada announced Wednesday that its English and French online shopping websites, shop.hockeycanada.ca and boutique.hockeycanada.ca, have resumed operations. Hockey Canada asked licensee Elastic Path Services Ltd. to suspend operations of both websites on January 7 until the quality of the French being used on boutique.hockeycanada.ca met Hockey Canada’s requirements.
The Hockey Canada shopping website has been online since October 2009.
“We thank Elastic Path Services Ltd. for its assistance in making sure the French content on Hockey Canada's online shopping website was of the highest quality,” said Scott Smith, Hockey Canada’s chief executive officer. “We are pleased that the site is fully operational ahead of a very exciting time for Hockey Canada, with the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver on the horizon.”
The Hockey Canada Store offers fans a wide range of merchandise, much of which is only available online through the store. Also available are authentic and replica versions of the official 2010 jersey that will be worn by Canada’s men’s and women’s teams at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and by Canada’s sledge team at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.
