"Steve Yzerman knows how important Hockey Canada's logo is, the one with the hockey player framed inside a red and black Maple Leaf. He's worn it, celebrated in it, and would like to see Canada's team emboldened by it when it hits the ice at the 2010 Vancouver/Whistler Olympics.

But that's unlikely to happen.

According to International Olympic Committee rules, Hockey Canada's 13-year-old logo is a violation, a breach of the Olympic charter that forbids sports federations from having their logos on Olympic jerseys. That means Hockey Canada must help pay for designing and producing a new jersey while losing out on whatever revenue it would have generated from selling its former jersey at a home Olympics."
