Canadian Hockey Team

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

What do you think of when someone mentions Canada? For most, Canada represents 2 key words: “cold”, and “hockey”. The Canadian Hockey team is split up into three teams: men’s, women’s, and juniors.

All teams represent Canada in various international competitions throughout the course of the hockey season. With the love and passion for the sport of hockey in Canada, it is no surprise that in most cases the Canadian squad is one of the most talented in the World.

Some analysts believe that Canada could put together two different squads in a competition and both would still be on the medal podium at the end of the day.

The year 2010 could go down as a historic year for Hockey Canada and their Canadian fans. Come December 2009 (and ending in January 2010), the Team Canada Juniors team will face the toughest teams from around the world at the World Junior Hockey championship.

This World Junior tournament is being held in Regina, Saskatchewan this year, and will certainly bring a lot of Canadian fans to watch. Team Canada has won the event the past 5 season, and many people believe a 6th championship is not out of the question.

Following the World Junior tournament, the world will be focused on the 2010 Olympic Games being held in Vancouver, British Columbia in February 2010. With the Olympics being held in Canada, there will be extra eyes surrounding the two competing Canadian hockey squads.

The Team Canada Mens, and Womens teams will be looking to take gold medals in what expects to be a very loud and noisy crowd of Canadian fans. The Women’s team will be looking to repeat as Olympic champions while the men’s team will be looking to avenge a disappointing 7th place finish in Turin. The rosters for both squads will be named on December 31st.

One of the best aspects of competitions involving Canadian hockey teams is the passion and unity that Canadian fans display. It really is second to none! Even international tournaments that occur across the world are attended very well by Canadian fans. One of the best ways to display Canadian passion is by wearing a Team Canada Jersey.

These jerseys can be worn at home, at work, or when watching Canada games with friends. Other ways of showing off your Canadian pride and passion is with other Team Canada Apparel. Throughout the country you will see many people wearing Maple leaf shirts, jackets, hats, and even scarves.

If Canada comes away with gold medals in the World Junior Tournament, Men’s Olympics, and Women’s Olympics, it will probably represent the greatest hockey achievement of any country in the world. To do it on home soil would be very special..
