Canada’s jersey for Olympics and Paralympics: 

Hockey Canada has revealed the three t-shirts that will be used by its men’s, women’s and Paralympic ice hockey sides at Beijing 2022 on Tuesday.

But with only over two months till the Olympics start, it’s still unclear who will be using them.

Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby and Alex Pietrangelo are the alone trio now entitled to the men’s team, as NHLers are ready to retreat to the Games for the initial time since 2014. Twenty-eight women’s skaters have gathered in Calgary for practice ahead of Beijing, but not all will finish to the Olympic team.

Hockey Canada CEO Tom Renney stated he knows the current jerseys — no matter who is wearing them — will be espoused by Canadian supporters.
