A leaked photo of Jonathan Toews wearing what is supposedly the sweater Team Canada will wear at the 2014 Sochi Olympics is creating a stir among hockey fans.

Toews, the captain of the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks and a lock to be named to Canada's Olympian team, is seen posing in a red jersey at a photo shoot.

Hockey Canada has yet to announce a date for the official unveiling.
