What would you do with the jersey Sidney Crosby wore when he scored the winning goal for Canada at Vancouver? Would you frame it? Wear it for bragging rights? Either way, for any die hard Canadian fan, it would be a dream come true to own a piece of Olympic Ice Hockey history.
Hockey Canada and eBay.ca want to make that dream a reality. They’re offering fans the chance to bid on game-worn jerseys from the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, all for a great cause. Proceeds from the auction will be shared by the Hockey Canada Foundation and Canadian Olympic Foundation.
The mission of the Hockey Canada Foundation is to support Hockey Canada by promoting and fostering accessibility to the game of hockey. Proceeds from this auction will support Hockey Canada Foundation initiatives that help ensure Canada remains at the forefront in the development and promotion of amateur hockey as well as creating access to the game.
