I am lucky enough to own one of the Remparts' cream-colored jerseys, but those are worn on the road and the Remparts were designated as the home team in the opening game of the 2015 Mastercard Memorial Cup against the WHL's Kelowna Rockets. That means they'd be wearing red as they do at home, leaving me with concerns that the red poppy patch worn on the jerseys might lose its pop on a red background.
Here's the graphic they published in announcing the Memorial Cup uniforms. Again, note the poppy.
same design as the old Remparts uniforms when the team played from 1969-1985 in Quebec City.
The best part is that these jerseys will be auctioned off after the game with the proceeds of the auction going to Quebec military veterans. That's one of the greatest things that the Memorial Cup does every year, and I totally would buy one of these jerseys each and every year if I could afford it. Military veterans deserve the help for providing up the freedoms we have, so get over to the auction and bid on one if you can afford it.
Well done, Quebec. Very classy jerseys.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
