The 2014 Sochi Olympics dominated the headlines on Monday as both Hockey Canada and USA Hockey opened orientation camps. But the host nation made a bit of news too, with Russia unveiling their men's and women's jerseys for the Games.

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin acted as a model for the Russian jersey, which featured eight stars along the shoulder to signify the eight gold medals the men's team has won.
