BE­FORE CANADA GRABBED GOLD at the World Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship in Buf­falo, Kaza­khstan’s

un­der-20s pulled off some­thing just as mo­men­tous. By win­ning the world ju­nior Div. 1-A tour­na­ment, they were pro­moted to next year’s WJC in Van­cou­ver and Vic­to­ria, tak­ing the spot over Ger­many, Latvia and France.

While next year’s uni­forms may be slightly dif­fer­ent (they will be de­signed by Nike), the main sell here is a re­ally cool logo fea­tur­ing two or­nate horses (uni­corns? Pe­ga­sus?) and a shield in the cen­ter. Plus, the trim evokes the Kaza­khstan flag, while the blue and gold mo­tif is pretty sharp, too.
