We are getting down to the wire in the NHL season, so as a Bruins fan I shouldn’t be dishing out compliments left and right to a division rival…but holy shit the Toronto Maple Leafs St. Pats unis may be the best unis in all of sports.
The Leafs have broken out the fresh green and white unis every March for the best few seasons around St. Patrick’s Day to honor their original team name. The NHL franchise in Toronto was originally named the Toronto St. Patrick’s in 1919. The team would play as the St. Pats with the green & white uniforms until 1927, when they switched to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
I don’t know if it’s cause I’m from Boston and I love anything that is Irish and has to do be St. Patrick’s Day, but these uniforms are unbelievable. Obviously, I get a lot of Celtics vibes from the jerseys and it would be much cooler if the Bruins could wear them. Boston is the Irish heartbeat of North America…..facts not opinions. But nonetheless, these are sick and Leafs fans should be pumped.
It’s pretty cool that a team can completely change their team colors to honor something, even if it is just for a day. Wish more teams in the NHL were able to do this.
