On Friday, the Toronto Six unveiled three jerseys the team will wear in its inaugural season.

Canada’s sole NWHL team made the announcement on Twitter, after teasing the reveal throughout the week.

The colours for each jersey were carefully selected.

“As the first Canadian team in the NWHL, the Six wanted to connect closely with the country’s colours and flag,” a press release from the team read. “Red and gold trim from the Six brand’s core colours are used as accents throughout the uniform.”

According to the release, Toronto’s goal for both its home and road jerseys was to have a “clean and classic look that honoured Canadian hockey.”

The Six’s third jersey features a pattern of maple leaves throughout, with six stripes on the sleeves and socks to represent both the team name and 2020-21 being the NWHL’s sixth season.

Each jersey also has a golden collar to represent the golden horseshoe of the Toronto area.

The NWHL has operated for five seasons in the United States.

Commissioner and founder Dani Rylan said following the collapse of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League in 2019 that her league would expand to Canada.

In May, the name, logo and colours for Toronto’s entry into the women’s hockey league were unveiled.
