What do you think of Team Canada’s new jerseys?

Players model the new Canadian Olympic team hockey jerseys.

The jerseys Team Canada's hockey and sledge hockey teams will wear at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, were officially unveiled Tuesday in Toronto by Hockey Canada.

They're the same jerseys that were leaked online weeks ago, when Jonathan Toews tweeted a photo of himself in the red jersey and all three jerseys appeared on Reddit.

Canada's hockey teams will alternate three different uniforms: A black jersey with Canada in large text in the middle, a white jersey with a red maple leaf and a red jersey with a white maple leaf.

Nike designers say the fabric is substantially lighter and more aerodynamic than previous jerseys, which will prove more comfortable and less restrictive for players.

When the jerseys were first leaked, they received an overwhelming negative response.

"I am filled with a great shame for our home and native land," wrote Yahoo hockey blogger Harrison Mooney. "The red logo looks like it was sponsored by Petro-Canada. The black one? Dunhill Fine Cut."

"Needless to say, the style is dreadful," responded one commenter. "If this is the best design Nike could come up with, then perhaps Team Canada should go back to Roots."
