Everyone thinks of blue and white when it comes to the Toronto Maple Leafs, but there was a time where the team’s primary colours were green and white. From 1919-1927, the franchise was known as the Toronto St. Pats and wore green and white jerseys with beigey brown pants and it looks like they’re bringing back the old school look this season.
Following Tuesday night’s game against the St. Louis Blues, the Maple Leafs unveiled the third jersey they’ll wear later this season and it’s basically a modern day version of the jerseys they wore from 1922-25.
The Maple Leafs are expected to rock their throwback St. Pats uniforms the weekend of St. Patrick’s Day, so they’ll most likely be wearing them at home against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, March 15, since they’ll be in Ottawa the following night.
Toronto first brought back the St. Pats jerseys during the franchise’s 75 Forever campaign back in 2001-2002, and they’ve become a bit of a fan favourite over the past 15+ years.
