Garret Sparks' new pads look awesome

Gotta look good going into the playoffs.

@TorontoMarlies

Look up goalies the Toronto Maple Leafs have control of next season, and you won't find too many. Jonathan Bernier, Antoine Bibeau, the newly-signed Kasimir Kaskisuo - and then Garret Sparks, who will be a restricted free agent heading into 2016-17.

Is Sparks coming back? Likely: he dressed 17 times for the Leafs, the only non-Bernier or James Reimer goalie to do so. He posted a .893 save percentage along the way, which isn't super great, but it was also his first foray into NHL action on the league's worst team, and he's only 22 years old. And with a .925 save percentage with the Marlies this season, he's certainly proving himself.

So it's on this day - the Marlies' regular season finale - Sparks is backing up Bibeau, getting to sit in his stylish new pads.

Figured I'd post these before they get too many puck marks on them @goaliesonly @torontomarlies #NowWeGo

Think he's ready for the playoffs? It's a great set - he'll certainly be looking the part.
