NEWS: Team USA 2018 Olympic Jersey Leaks?

It appears that the blue jersey that Team USA will wear at the 2018 Olympics in South Korea was leaked...by Team USA.

A HJC reader, Geoff sent us a link (that has since been taken down) which directed you to a product called "USA Hockey Nike 2018 Replica Personalized Jersey". Due to the link no longer being active I would lean towards this being the actual jersey that will be worn at the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. The lack of the USA Hockey logo and the inclusion of the 2014 USA Olympic logo also lend credibility to this leak.
The jersey is mostly blue and features a white USA across the chest as well as the Nike logo in silver. Nike's logo also seems to be textured, similar to the way Adidas added texture to the NHL shield on those jerseys. On the arms is a unique design which certainly will be the focal point of this sweater.

Now we wait to see when the actual release of this jersey comes from USA hockey. If they were preparing the page to sell replicas I would expect an announcement soon.

Below is a look at the two previous blue jerseys that Team USA has worn since the IOC started enforcing the rule that non-approved corporate logos could not be worn during the games.

2010 Olympic jersey
(Update October 13)

Above is a jersey that was listed as an alternate for Team USA. This jersey is a lighter shade of blue than the previous jersey we saw. The USA now runs diagonally down the front and has a red and blue drop shadow. The unique sublimation on the arms that we saw before remains on this jersey. It has also been brought to our attention that the jerseys will go on sale November 1st.
