The first every Heroes Hockey Challenge will take place in Five Major Canadian Cities in the Winter of 2012. This will pit some of the Canadian Military's elite hockey players against NHL Alumni for one friendly match in each city. The proceeds of the matches and corresponding events will go toward military charities.
Guy Cramer of Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp. has provided his expertise in camouflage design pro bono to provide a "Desert Cam" option for the Canadian Soldiers jerseys that is similar to the CADPAT AR pattern. This is the camouflage utilized by Canadian troops in Desert/Arid regions and is the predominant pattern seen in Afghanistan.

Hyperstealth did a great job in providing a pattern and colorway that does great justice for a military style camouflage design without being a direct copy of CADPAT. The Combat Shirt style jersey is pretty awesome and is available for pre-order purchase at the Heroes Hockey Challenge Kitshop Profits from jersey sells go to the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry Foundation.
We know the immense pride that many Canadians have in their Hockey sports culture as well as their Military Forces, so it is great to see the two working together for a common good.
