Canucks to play Chinese New Year game with special dragon jerseys

Following the Chinese New Year, the Vancouver Canucks will celebrate with festive warm-up jerseys and arena events in their game against the Boston Bruins on Feb. 17.

During a pre-game event Jan.30, Trevor Linden, former Canuck and president of hockey operations, NHL said “Vancouver being such a multi-cultural city, we are really excited about initiating things to celebrate Chinese New Year.”

The lucky dragon jersey was designed by a Chinese Vancouver designer, Charlie Chien. The jersey is in red and golden colour, featuring delicately embroidered dog patches for the Year of the Dog on the shoulders and chests. In Chinese culture, the colour combination of red and gold represents good fortune and wealth. The embroidered dog is a husky, which is believed to bring strength.
