Maple Leafs reveal interesting changes to iconic uniform

Every March, the Leafs put away their classic blue and white in favour of Irish green. The Toronto Arenas became the Toronto St. Pats in 1919 before settling on the iconic Maple Leafs name in 1927. 97 years later, the St Pats are set to make their annual return to the ice as part of the Leafs' St. Patrick's Day festivities. This year they've brought out a fresh take on the classic green and white.

In true 2024 fashion, the jersey was unveiled in a collaboration with PWHL Toronto superstar Sarah Nurse, streamer FaZe CBass and Ea Sports NHL 24. In case you were wondering, you're not alone. I didn't know who CBass is either.


As for the jerseys themselves, the old pill-shaped typed logo is gone, replaced by a large green shamrock. Most importantly, the awkward square boxes that the Gaelic font numbers on the back used to sit on are gone. They've been replaced by simple green numbers and lettering in the regular Leafs font.

The new logo combined with the Leafs' Milk jersey ads have prompted some ridicule, with fans now calling them the Toronto Shamrock Shakes. Personally, I like the new look, the old one was getting stale and needed an update. I'm not sure I like it enough to go out and spend $200 on it though.


The Leafs will debut the new St Pats uniforms on Saturday night when they face off against the Carolina Hurricanes at home.
