The Toronto Maple Leafs’ current rebuild has included a new coach and a number of new players and it looks like the next change will be a different logo.

Sports uniform expert Chris Creamer is reporting that the Maple Leafs can be expected to don all-new gear next season in conjunction with the team’s centennial anniversary. When reached, an MLSE spokesman declined comment on the report, telling Sportsnet “We will be announcing centennial plans in the new year.”

Toronto’s logo has not seen a major change since 1970 and the team has been using the current iteration since 1987.

Toronto currently sits eighth in the Atlantic division with a 10-13-5 record. The team’s next game in on Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
