History: The Summit Series was played in 1972 between the Soviet Union and a Canadian team which consisted of NHL All-Stars. Soviet Goalie Vladislav Tretiak was so impressive that the Montreal Canadiens drafted him in 1983, but the move was blocked by the Soviet government. We have previously offered the road red CCCP jersey, and now we present the white home one.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.
