By Chris KucheraThe NHL’s new season is here.
You may have already picked your favourite team, but the league is looking for new ways to keep you entertained.
In a recent video posted to the official YouTube channel for the Toronto Maple Leafs, general manager Jim Benning unveiled a new look for the home of the National Hockey League, including purple curtains.
“We’re going to start making some bold decisions,” Benning said in the video.
“We’re just trying to get back to the way that we were with the purple curtains that were the best, but not the best.
We’re going back to what works and what people like.”
The Toronto Maple Leaf’s purple curtains are the latest to feature the colour, which was introduced in 2009 and is worn by many in the Canadian market.
The colour was originally created for the Canadian Football League (CFL), where it has remained since 2009.
In the video, Benning also revealed the new color scheme of the Toronto Raptors, which will return to the NBA for the first time in seven years in 2019.
The Raptors will be wearing a similar colour scheme to the Toronto Blue Jays, which have been wearing purple curtains since the 2012 season.
In addition to the new colours, the Leafs also unveiled a pair of new uniforms.
One of the new uniforms features a traditional Canadian maple leaf design with a maple leaf on the back.
The other is a black jersey with a white stripe running the length of the jersey, and the word “TIM” written on it.
Benning’s decision to re-sign Kyle Dubas and re-commit him to the team comes after the former Maple Leafs head coach and general manager made headlines earlier this month by saying that he was looking for a new home to relocate the team to in 2018.
The decision to relocate was not announced in advance.
Benson has also said that the Leafs are looking for another team to play in the NHL in 2019, though the team will not play in a regular season game until 2024.
