Unlike Team USA and Team Russia, Team Canada opted not to debut their new Olympic jerseys as their recent Olympic orientation camp.

They haven't even announced a date yet for the
unveiling.

But we're pretty sure Jonathan Toews, a lock to be on the team, got a sneak peek, and even the opportunity to be photographed in it. Here's a picture snapped during the 2013 NHL Player

Media Tour on Thursday in Newark. It seems a safe bet that this is Team Canada's new sweater:

Your first clue: the Nike logo. Your second, much larger clue: take a close look at Toews' neck. Notice the zig-zagging pattern? Here. We'll zoom in on it:

That's that heinous, heinous fake lace print I and many others mocked Team USA mercilessly for, before realizing that Team Russia had them as well, at which point it began to dawn on us that this might be something Nike was doing for all the Olympic jerseys.

Sure looks like it. Crud.

Either way, if this isn't Team Canada's official jersey, it's clearly a new product, because those laces are a brand new design.

As for the rest of the jersey, I don't hate it. It's a little simple and it kind of has that practice jersey vibe that so many teams seem to be going for all of a sudden, but I like the maple leaf cresting flatly over the red base -- a change from 2010's leaf, which had the usual corners. (The Maple

Leaf had a flat base during thee 1972 Summit Series. Is this an homage to that?)
Note the gold border around the leaf, too. Gold, eh? That's a tad ballsy, no?

The "Canada" written in a minimalist script underneath it is a nice touch too.

I'm especially fond, however, of one thing, and I'm sure that while we won't all agree on whether or not this is a nice piece of apparel, we can all agree on this: the jersey appears to be without tiny maple leaves all over the shoulders, and that's great news, because it means we can continue to make fun of the Team USA jersey's stupidest innovation. (There does appear to be something shiny, though. Please just be glare. Please just be glare. Oh god, please just be glare.)

With that, I'd say Canada takes an early lead, if indeed these are the duds they'll be wearing in Sochi.

It looks like a regular long sleeved shirt.

Why are all the jerseys so bad for these olympics?

It's like the past month or so has been "Who can make the worst jersey possible?", both NHL and Olympic-wise.

Judging by the look on Toews' face, he feels the same way about the jerseys as most of us do.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

They look like practice jerseys or something they would use in Timbits league. That shiny plastic fake stuff is awful and serves no purpose. They should have kept the current ones which are clean and beautiful.

Don't like them at all...probably my least favourite Team Canada jersey all time. Looks like they were trying to make it look like the Canadian flag, and if that's not enough a Canadian flag on the left arm too.

God that looks worse than Team USA's jerseys. Team Canada should switch to Reebok if Nike is the one implementing the fake laces.

That being said, my favourite Team Canada jersey is the 1920 Falcons jersey (have one myself).

Look like Jonathan got the gross-out look to his face wearing the jersey.

good god, that is one hideous jersey! Just bad as the USA... One sleeves have white and the other doesn't? Wtf..?

I bet the Russian are paying top money to Nike to make their jersey look the best and the rest of the world look like crap.
