Team Canada photos: Flag replaces jersey

By Sarah Goldstein

A day after photos of Jonathan Toews wearing what is thought to be the previously unseen Team Canada jersey spread across the Internet, players were photographed wearing the Canadian flag over their shoulder at the NHL's player media tour.

Getty posted a photo on Thursday of Toews wearing a Canadian sweater during a photo shoot. The jersey had the Nike logo and had similar features to the jersey's Nike designed for the United States and Russia.

The photo was later removed from Getty's website.

Team Canada released a statement on Friday saying they would unveil their jersey for the 2014 Sochi Olympics on Oct. 8.
