USA Hockey unveils Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic jerseys

USA Hockey has unveiled the jersey that the American men’s, women’s and para hockey teams will wear at the 2022 Olympics and Paralympics in Beijing.

One day after Hockey Canada revealed the three jerseys that will be worn for the Winter Games, the Americans followed with their trio that features the traditional USA wordmark across the front chest.

The new jersey design is meant to pay tribute to the country’s industrial past, and includes a bevelled metallic aesthetic while sticking to the team’s traditional colours of red, white and blue. The USA Hockey shield is outlined in gold and stitched to the shoulder and the jersey has the slogan “Driven By Pride” stitched on the inside back neck area.

The three Nike jerseys will be worn by USA’s men’s, women’s and para hockey teams at the Olympics and Paralympics, which begin Feb. 4 and March 4, respectively. Along with the usual dark blue and white jersey, the team unveiled an alternate jersey that draws inspiration from American muscle cars with a deep blue double stripe running around the chest and arms.

Seth Jones, Patrick Kane, and Auston Matthews were the first three players named to Team USA with NHL players returning to Olympic competition for the first time since 2014 in Sochi, Russia. The puck drops on the tournament Feb. 9 with the gold medal game scheduled for Feb. 20.
