Raptors/Leafs Season Subscribers Event@Ripley’s Aquarium(Tues.,March 1st,2016)
There are two sides to this story! A successful season with a long winning steak set by the Toronto Raptors while the Maple Leafs are undergoing a rebuilding campaign with a lot of youthful hockey players and a season of trading away many of the veterans. But everything was put off to the side as Premium season ticket holders were treated to a fun event at the Ripley’s Aquarium.
In attendance were Toronto Maple Leaf alumni: Darcy Tucker, Wendel Clarke, Nick Kypreos, Curtis Joseph, Darryl Sittler and Shane Corson. For the Toronto Raptors: Demar Derozen and Terrance Ross. The management decided not to bring out any of the young Leaf players such as William Nyander, Kasper Kapanen, Zach Hyman, Nikita Soshnikov, Josh Leivo and Garret Sparks.
The biggest photo opportunity was at the front entrance with a rare appearance by the two team mascots : “Carlton The Bear” for the Toronto Maple Leafs and “The Raptor” for The Toronto Raptors. Fans were treated to complimentary Canape Food and beverages for the evening. Leafs/Raptor players were scattered all over the Aquarium and were available for photographs/autographs. It was a snowy day in Toronto but that didn’t damper the fans attending this yearly event for premium season seat subscribers.
