Ottawa, Ont. – Hockey Canada and eBay.ca launched the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship auction on Thursday, April 4 at 8 a.m. ET/5 a.m. PT. The jerseys up for auction are the red jerseys worn exclusively by Canada’s National Women’s Team at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship in Ottawa.

Canada’s 23-player roster includes three goaltenders, seven defencemen and 13 forwards. Twenty-two are returnees from the Canadian contingent that won the gold medal at the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship in Burlington, Vt., and 14 helped Canada win gold at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, B.C.

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.
