CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada and eBay.ca will launch the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship eBay auction Friday, May 10 at 8 a.m. ET/5 a.m. PT. The jerseys up for auction are worn exclusively by Canada’s National Men’s Team at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden. Fans have the chance to own a Team Canada jersey worn by Jordan Eberle, Claude Giroux, Taylor Hall and Steven Stamkos, among others.

Canada’s 22-player roster includes three goaltenders, seven defencemen and 12 forwards, including 11 players with world championship experience, one Olympian, and 16 players with international experience. Six players, including T.J. Brodie, Brenden Dillon, Michael Garnett, Matt Read, Justin Schultz and Mike Smith, are representing Canada in international play for the first time.  

All proceeds from the sale of game-worn items will go to the Hockey Canada Foundation (HCF), whose mission is to support Hockey Canada by promoting and fostering accessibility to the game of hockey. Proceeds of this auction will support HCF initiatives that help ensure Canada remains at the forefront in the development and promotion of amateur hockey, as well as creating access to our game.

The auction will last 10 days, closing Monday, May 20, 2013. Shipment will commence for paid items on Tuesday, May 28, 2013.

The 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship runs May 3-19 in Helsinki, Finland, and Stockholm, Sweden. Canada will be based out of Stockholm for the duration of the event.
