November 28, 2013, OTTAWA / TORONTO (ISN) – The National Hockey League (NHL®), in association with the Vancouver Canucks® and Ottawa Senators®, today unveiled public ticket availability details and the jerseys that will be worn for the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic™ on Sunday, March 2 at BC Place in Vancouver.
Additionally, the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic jerseys were unveiled today. The jerseys are available for purchase starting today at Canucks and Senators Team Stores. These specially-designed jerseys will arrive in retail stores across North America as well as online at Shop.Canada.NHL.com as early as Friday, Nov. 29.
The Senators will wear jerseys celebrating the early-NHL era Senators, four-time Stanley Cup® champions in an eight-year span from 1920-27. The sweaters feature historical elements interpreted in a modern look, balancing past with present. The large “O” logo on the front that stands for Ottawa is reminiscent of the design prior to 1934. The red and black stripes on a cream background, borrowed from the ‘Barber Poles’ of past jerseys, is used across the chest, arms and socks.
The Canucks will pay homage to the Vancouver Millionaires by wearing their commemorative Millionaires jerseys. First worn by the team last season, the jerseys celebrate 100 years of hockey on the West Coast and include a large “Victory V” logo front and center, maroon and cream striped sleeves and a large cream stripe on maroon socks. The franchise will wear the special jersey at the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic™ in honour of Vancouver’s original hockey heroes.
The Canucks will be just the third Canadian team to host an NHL Heritage Classic, following the Edmonton Oilers in 2003 and Calgary Flames in 2011.
The game will be broadcast live on CBC and RDS in Canada and NBCSN in the U.S. beginning at 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET.
