Team Canada will be sporting a new look when it hits the ice at next month's men's world championship in Halifax and Quebec City.

With help from some minor hockey players, Hockey Canada and Nike will unveil the new Team Canada home and away jerseys in Toronto on Thursday.

Several of Canada's national team players are expected to be on hand for the announcement.

Eric Staal and Patrick Sharp of the men's national team will model the new look, as well as Gillian Apps from the women's national team that just won silver at the women's world championship in Harbin, China.

Fresh off their world championship win on April 5 in Marlborough, Mass., Paul Rosen and Bradley Bowden from Canada's national sledge team will also be present.

The event will conclude with the unveiling of two giant replicas of the new jersey, with one designated for fans to sign with words of support for the men's team ahead of next month's world championship.

The 2008 IIHF World Championship drops the puck on May 2, with Canada taking on Slovenia on the first day of the tournament.
