VANCOUVER, BC -- Canada's hockey players at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japan will be wearing a new National Team Jersey. Bob MacKinnon, Chairman of the Board, Canadian Hockey Association presented the sweaters to Men's team captain Eric Lindros and Women's team captain Stacy Wilson today in Vancouver. The presentation took place during the NHL All-Star weekend activities.

Designed and produced by Bauer, Inc. the jersey features the Team Canada crest on the front and patches on the shoulder. Home sweaters use red as the dominant background colour while the away game jerseys use white as the background.

"We're proud this sweater will be worn for the first time at the Nagano Winter Games by our Olympic teams, but we also know this sweater will be worn proudly by all of our national teams for the next four years," announced MacKinnon. "It will be used by our National Men's and Women's teams, our National Junior teams and our National Under-18 and Under-17 team programs.

Bauer Inc.'s Senior Vice-President, Phil Chiarella commented, "We're pleased to be the exclusive supplier of Canada's National Team Jerseys, and to see such a visible symbol of our country every time the players step onto the ice. We're also proud that the partnership between Bauer Inc. and the Canadian Hockey Association goes even further. Through our sponsorship and licensing agreements, which includes the retail sale of these jerseys, we know that we're also helping to support amateur hockey in Canada, and provide some of the necessary resources to continue developing young hockey players across the country."

Authentic Team Canada and Replica Jerseys are now available for sale at retail outlets across Canada. The Authentic ice hockey jersey features a Proweight Flo-Knit body with a mesh outer layer, double elbows and pro tie-downs. The Replica jersey is made from heavyweight Flo-Knit feedstripe with double shoulders. The Bauer icon and wordmark appear on both jerseys.

A portion of the proceeds from all sales returns to the Canadian Hockey Association and is used to support training and development programs for players, coaches, officials, administrators and volunteers.
