[quote=“Canadian Press”]Canada’s players surprised the soldout Bell Centre crowd by hitting the ice wearing gold jerseys for Tuesday’s World Cup of Hockey opener against the United States.
They wore them in tribute to the 1920 Winnipeg Falcons - Canada’s first gold medal winning team in Olympic hockey history.
The replica vintage jerseys, worn only for Tuesday’s game, were described as `antique gold,’ continuing Hockey Canada’s effort to honour past Canadian teams. Last season Hockey Canada launched similar jerseys for Canada’s national teams of the 1970s.
We really thought we wanted to do something special for the Falcons,'' Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson said Tuesday.The buzz in the dressing room is unbelievable.’’
The gold jerseys had `Canada’ written on the back instead of the players’ names, and had a red Maple Leaf on the front.[/quote]
