CP – Canadian Pacific — National Sponsor
I know this is true due to the thousands of queries received since these patches appeared during the 2014 playoffs. A whole generation or two with no idea and no way to discover what CP stands for. Pass it along and they can say TIL.
Update: No, it doesn’t stand for Captain or Canadian Player. Nice try though.
Update 2018: Alas, CP has not renewed their sponsorship agreement in 2018, and the CP patch has been replaced by another. The above is only relevant through 2017.
Update 2019: KalTire and BFGoodrich patches will be worn by West Division teams in 2019.
