This style jersey was worn by the Coyotes beginning with their first season in Phoenix in 1996-97 through 2002-03 and was a polarizing design, as many fans and collectors either embraced the unusual cubist logo, southwestern inspired striping and unique color palette or were as equally repulsed by those same qualities.
This style was first worn by Canada at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. The 2005 World Championships would be the final appearance for this style, as Nike would introduce it's new Swift design for Canada at the 2006 World Junior Championships.
It would be hard to find a jersey worn for more successes in the history of hockey, as Canada would win gold medals at the 2002 Olympics, the 2003 and 2004 World Championships, the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, the 2005 World Junior Championships, the 2002 Women's Olympics and the 2004 Women's World Championships while wearing this style, and at one point holding the championship in all six categories at the same time! This run of success prompted the Canadians to produce a special version of this jersey with the Hockey Canada maple leaf crest outlined in gold rather than it's original silver color.
Plenty of video today. First up is a nice tribute to Shane Doan with a lot of goals and some of the rough stuff followed by another very well done tribute which covers more of his international career.
