The Vancouver Canucks have officially unveiled their 2022 2SLGBTQ+ Pride warm-up jersey.
Scheduled to be worn prior to the Canucks’ home game against the Washington Capitals on Mar. 11, the jersey features a colourful modified orca crest and an intricately-designed shoulder patch
on a white base.
The logo, designed by queer artist Mio (she/her), incorporates elements of the mountains, forests, sky, sea, and icy landscape of British Columbia (depicted in rainbow colours) and relates them all to various aspects of the queer experience.
Mio is a Swedish artist who has previously created designs for the Dallas Stars, Carolina Hurricanes, and the Premier Hockey Federation.
The Canucks also announced that the player-worn uniforms would be put up for auction, with “partial proceeds” being donated
to You Can Play. It has not been made clear at this time whether any additional merchandise featuring Mio’s designs will be made available for wider consumption.
After wearing their Pride jerseys in warm-ups, the Canucks will take on the Capitals on Mar. 11 at 7:00 p.m. PT.
