C
The C on a player's jersey stands for Captain. Because ice hockey teams play in shifts of players, the Captain isn't always on the ice - so there are also two Assistant Captains or Alternate Captains on each team (signified by an A on their jersey) so that, hopefully, there is always a Captain on the ice. The Captain (or the A) is the only player allowed to query decisions with the Officials. Some coaches pick the Captain & his Assistants/Alternates, at other clubs the team may pick the players to fill these roles and in one case, the Minnesota Wild (in their first NHL season) rotated the roles through the squad of players on a predetermined basis.

CCM (Canadian Cycle and Motor Company Limited) [web site]
Founded in 1899 by a group of companies including Lozier, Welland Vale, Gendron, Goold and Massey-Harris. The company was created to compete with The American Bicycle Company - which had set up a bicycle manufacturing plant in Hamilton, Ontario. In 1905 the company began to manufacture winter sports equipment producing CCM Automobile Skates. In the 1930's CCM produced 'Matched Sets' of blades and boots based on the principle of the modern skate. In the mid 1930s, CCM employed King Clancy to promote their skates - the first hockey player to act as a consultant in the design, testing, and marketing of their equipment. In 1937 the company acquired the Tackaberry trade name - an established brand of skate already a favourite with professional players. CCM had also become a hockey stick distributor and purchased the Joseph Choquette Company in 1940 to become the leading manufacturer of sticks as well as skates.
