Maple Leafs Fans Get Sneak Peek at New Logo

 

Toronto Maple Leafs fans might have gotten a sneak peek at the new logo on Sunday morning when Chris Smith of Icethetics.co posted his mockup of the new Leafs logo based on what was revealed to him.

Says Smith:

It’s a new design but heavily inspired by the past. That’s the hallmark of hockey design in the last decade — and not at all surprising from one of the league’s oldest clubs.

It’s modeled on the leaf that was introduced in 1938 minus the double outline that was added in the 1960s — the logo we all know well from the third jersey the Leafs wore from 2000 to 2011.

While this logo is just a mock up – and Smith cautions you will see differences when the official logo is revealed – he also says that it’s pretty close to the real thing. The Maple Leafs plan to reveal the new logo on Tuesday, February 2, in a TSN special airing at 9:30pm ET on TSN 4, Leafs TV, and MapleLeafs.com for those who don’t have access to Canadian programing.

What do you think of the new design? Too old fashioned? Or does it hit just the right nostalgic note?
