This week HJC put up two jerseys on eBay. Both are Doug Gilmour jerseys, one is a white Chicago Blackhawks jersey and the other is a white Buffalo Sabres jersey. The Buffalo jersey seems to be the most popular one, so this might be your chance to get a nicely priced Blackhawks jersey. Check out the Hawks auction HERE and you can find the Sabres auction HERE.

The 2017 Memorial Cup began last night and as is the tradition on opening night, the host team wore their memorial themed sweaters. This year's host the Windsor Spitfires did just that and won the game 3-2 over the Saint John Sea Dogs.

I'd give the jersey a 7.5/10. The stripes are based on an old Windsor alternate jersey. I haven't found an explanation of the crest yet. Perhaps some readers can help us out? Whoever put together this image though did a shit job! The TV numbers on the front view of the jersey say that the player is #71, but the back says #17. On the back view, one of the shoulder patches is just a mirror image of the front view, so it's not an accurate representation of the jersey. Finally the back collar has just been pasted on top. You can see that the vintage white yoke just continues right under the collar. Most of us on here are better than this "pro job".

The logo on the Spitfires' jersey is the ship's crest of HMCS Windsor, a Canadian attack submarine. Relevant Wiki page on the boat here -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Windsor
