In a (very rough) Google translation of the Aftonbladet piece, the marketing manager of the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation said the jersey design was “very clean,” noting the organization wanted to “keep it traditional.”

So, pretty basic construction — yellow and blue, with the Tre Kronor featured prominently, as it was on the jerseys Sweden wore at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver:

    Sweden’s always had the best jerseys, despite being stuck wearing yellow. Simple works with that color scheme for some reason.

    I want a USA jersey for this year, but I can’t bring myself to pay $100+ for something that hideous. The white one is the only one I’d even consider buying.

    Did Nike seriously put a boat on the shoulders?

      Hahaha!! Almost missed that!!

      lol they look unsure of themselves. we wanna put a boat on here, but we don’t really want anybody to see it in case it’s a stupid idea.

        The whole faux laces/hidden images ideas are just terrible.

        is there more hidden things on other jerseys? i hadn’t noticed them.

        ibieiniid – The US jerseys have stars and the Canadian jerseys have maple leaves.

    One of the nicest ones so far for these olympics… but that’s not saying much. Nike isn’t exactly wowing me this year. If I got Team Canada one for xmas, I might look at it the same with a kid looks at an itchy sweater grandma knitted.

      let’s hope your wife/girlfriend/parents are reading this.

    I think it would be cool if they went more historically themed with the jerseys and made them look more like Carolean uniforms. Dark blue with yellow around the collar and cuffs, with yellow trim at the bottom. They still look alright, but could be improved. Of course, it is Nike we’re talking about.

    The only good jersey they’ve unveiled so far

    All the jerseys have the fakes laces & some stupid “hidden” things pressed on the shoulders (stars on america’s, leaf’s on Canada’s).
    Sweden’s look the best because they kept them traditional. Canada’s red jersey is passable, same with the Czech’s, the American’s look bad. This may easily be the worst set of jerseys from any given Olympics

    Tre Kronor is always beautiful but the shoulder on this one look like a wetsuit.

    Canadas leaf sweater looks best.

    The boat is the Swedish hockey association logo. http://www.swehockey.se/Genvagar/In-English/
