Default Does it Bother Anyone Else When Card Companies Do This?

I don't buy/sell much in the way of hockey cards, but this morning I was listing several of my recent additions and noticed that Upper Deck refers to the players uniforms as jerseys. I always thought that in hockey they were called sweaters and jersey was seen as a negative.

They were called sweaters up until the 60's and early 70's when they were exactly that, wool sweaters. These days jersey is a more accurate term because of how they are made but sometimes people (myself included) will call it a sweater. I really don't see it as a big deal at all.
