Hey, remember that whole thing about the Toronto Maple Leafs getting a new logo? It's an updated look to celebrate the team's centennial by combining a couple of old, popular styles into a new, modern look, and it's great.
It is also now on a hat.
Spotted some new Leafs hats. Are these potentially the new draft hats? pic.twitter.com/vkGEh969iS— Leafs Society (@LeafsSociety) June 13, 2016
Shoutout to @LeafsSociety for the pictures! As well as showing that other teams have new-look hats as well, even if they don't have new logos - with the draft coming up in just under two weeks, it would make perfect sense if these are what this year's class will get to wear.
For reference, here's what Mitch Marner wore when the Leafs drafted him last year:

Solid team colour, logo up top, variant on the brim. Looks nice. Clean.
The new ones I'm... less certain about? It looks like the cities' names are spelled out on the back, which just looks, well, odd. (Initial PPP chat reaction: "What the hell is on the back half? White... stripey things?")
Anyway! Now that the excitement of actual hockey being played is over, this was just another little reminder: not only is Auston Matthews coming up, but so is a new look for the Leafs.
