J.T. Miller recently captured the attention of Vancouver Canucks fans by skating onto the ice for a practice while donning one of Arturs Silovs’ pink paisley T-shirts.
The good-natured prank drew considerable media coverage — it happened in the lead-up to Game 6 against the Nashville Predators, after all! — and appears to have resonated throughout the Canucks’ organization, because on Wednesday night, the club unveiled a replica version of the T-shirt in question on its official online store.
“From fashion pioneers Arturs Silovs and J.T. Miller, we bring you the Canucks Paisley T-Shirt! Now available at Vanbase and Canucks Team Store,” the Canucks tweeted out on Wednesday, along with a photograph of two models wearing the shirt.
Although, strictly speaking, it’s not a piece of designer clothing like the one Silovs owns, the Canucks’ version of the shirt is available online for just $48 CAD and is available in five different sizes: small, medium, large, extra large, and 2XL.
The product description on the Vanbase website reads: “Show your spirit with the Vancouver Canucks Paisley Tee. This stylish tee features a unique paisley design, perfect for standing out in the crowd at your next Canucks game. Made with comfortable and durable fabric, it’s the perfect addition to any fan’s wardrobe. Go Canucks!”
The original shirt was designed by Hugo Boss and retails for $179 CAD on its online store, although it currently appears to be sold out. It’s unclear whether or not the Canucks consulted with Hugo Boss before releasing their own version of the tee.
Silovs’ shirt drew mixed reviews when Miller wore it onto the ice at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville back on May 2.
“I mean, he has to know better,” Canucks defenceman Nikita Zadorov deadpanned to Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy after the skate. “He’s not going to a nightclub in Riga.”
“I guess they liked it so much, they wanted to bring it on the ice,” Silovs said, with a laugh. “I knew it was coming, but it looked good on him. Something different than every single day.”
Silovs, 23, has come a long way with the Canucks since having his name misspelled on his jersey during a preseason game years ago. The Latvian netminder backstopped the Canucks into the second round with three consecutive starts against the Predators and is expected to man the pipes for Game 1 against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.
