The Maple Leafs are by far one of the most loved and one of the most disliked teams in the NHL, however one thing everyone can agree on is their support for our veterans and currently serving soldiers is 2nd to none in the NHL.
Every home game Luke Schenn gives two tickets to a military family and during the third period of each game they are honored on the big screen in a segment called "Lukes Troops". The Leafs have also held many "Military Appreciation Nights" and last year released a line of military related Leafs gear with 25% of proceeds going to the Military Families Fund & The Leafs have also gone on morale visits to soldiers serving in Afghanistan
Tonight was another example of this with their Remembrance Day Tribute before their game against the Florida Panthers.
I am proud as always to be a Maple Leafs fan and ceremonies such as this make that a little easier
