Jersey Tributes Across Canada

Hope some of you had a chance to catch my interview on NHL Home Ice this morning. I'll try to get it posted here later tonight if you'd like to take a listen. In the meantime, I've got some pictures to share of some things that went on over the weekend.

We'll go east to west, starting in Montreal. On Saturday night, the Canadiens paid tribute to Patrick Roy with the retiring of his No. 33 sweater. Down on the ice, all of players wore Roy's jersey during warm-ups. Great picture here.

At the same time, it was Wendel Clark Night in Toronto as the Maple Leafs retired honored his No. 17 jersey. Just like in Montreal, players paid tribute during warm-ups by wearing Clark's sweater.

And across the continent in Vancouver, the WHL's Giants honored the gone-but-not-forgotten Millionaires with throwback jerseys on Friday. My thanks to Sean for this photo from the game.

That's some uniform isn't it? Complete with the white pants and everything.

I saved this stuff for today because I didn't want it to get lost in the shuffle of Third Jersey Weekend. It's nice to see teams paying tribute to the past, especially with their uniforms.
