A history to remember - 1952: Hockey Night in Canada is born. Only weeks after television broadcasting began in Canada, Hockey Night in Canada hit the air for the first time with a game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins at Maple Leaf Gardens. Airing once a week, the show was hosted by Foster Hewitt and began with the signature opening “Hello Canada and hockey fans in the United States.” During his career, Mr. Hewitt coined phrases such as “He shoots, he scores.” In 1958, his son Bill took over hosting responsibilities. Both have been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

How To Measure
Take an outerwear jacket that fits you well and lay it flat on a table as it is done here. Find a tape measure and note the following measurements:
A (BODY LENGTH) - measure from highest point of shoulder (hps) to bottom hem
B (CHEST) - go two inches below armpit and then measure across
C (SLEEVE LENGTH) - measure from centre back collar to sleeve cuff edge
* Because each sweater is knit by hand, finished measurements may vary slightly.
