GO(LF) LEAFS GO(LF)!
Team colours: Blue and white.
Uniquely amongst NHL teams, the Leafs will raise a numbered banner to 'honour' a player while allowing the number to continue in use by the next generation of players. Thus a player, it is hoped, will strive to carry on the tradition of excellence of previous assignees of that jersey number.
