BY foxsports • February 3, 2016

To pay homage to their upcoming 100th anniversary, the Toronto Maple Leafs unveiled their new logo for next season.

The logo, which features a much more defined leaf with more edges, appears to be more like the logo utilized from the 1940s through the 1960s.

The leaf features 31 points, which represent the year 1931, the year Maple Leaf Gardens opened. The 17 veins on the leaf represent the year 1917, the year the franchise was founded. And the 13 veins at the top of the logo represent Toronto's 13 Stanley Cup championships, all according to the team's press release.

Maple Leafs' President and Alternate Governor Brendan Shanahan sent the follow message to Leafs' fans.

The new Leafs uniforms will be unveiled at the 2016 NHL Draft.
