In this animated short, Roch Carrier recounts the most mortifying moment of his childhood. At a time when all his friends worshipped Maurice "Rocket" Richard and wore his number 9 Canadiens hockey jersey, the boy was mistakenly sent a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey from Eaton's. Unable to convince his mother to send it back, he must face his friends wearing the colours of the opposing team. This short film, based on the book The Hockey Sweater, is an NFB classic that appeals to hockey lovers of all ages.

    Bonjour brunehaut. Merci de nous avoir laissé un commentaire. Le film Le chandail est accessible sur ONF.ca dans sa version française ici : http://www.onf.ca/film/chandail_le/. Les deux films n'étaient pas reliés par langue. Je vais m'assurer qu'il le soit. Bonne journée! - Catherine

    Pourquoi est-ce qu'on ne trouve sur votre site que la version anglaise du Chandail de hockey ? C'est un comble, pour l'histoire-phare d'un Canadien Français ! Même en cliquant sur le bouton 'français' j'obtiens la page d'accueil en anglais.

    If you take a close look at a Canadian five dollar bill, you'll see an excerpt of the story printed on it.
