Maple Leafs' new logo unveiled on centre ice at the ACC
The revamped look, marking the team's centenary season, is the first new design in 45 years
The Toronto Maple Leafs took to social media Friday afternoon to show the team's new logo being painted on centre ice at the Air Canada Centre.
The design, commissioned to mark the team's centennial season, was revealed in February. It was the first time in 45 years the Leafs introduced a new logo.

The new look is a fresh take on the classic Maple Leaf emblem that was used from the 1940s to the 1960s. It will serve as the team's primary crest beginning in the 2016-17 season.
The logo, with some slight alterations, aligns most closely to a version used from 1963 to 1967, the most successful era in the team's history.
