When the Toronto Maple Leafs celebrate St. Patrick's Day, goalie Frederik Andersen will honor Pat Quinn.
Andersen's mask, created to coordinate with Toronto's special St. Pats-themed uniforms, features the former Toronto coaching great's name and likeness.
Andersen's mask also features a green maple leaf on top, and the Maple Leafs alternate St. Pats logo on the right side beneath Quinn's name and likeness. The Maple Leafs will wear the throwback green and white Toronto St. Pats uniforms for their game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; CBC, CITY, CSN-CH, NHL.TV).
The St. Pats played in Toronto and the NHL from 1919-27 before they were sold to Conn Smythe and other investors and remained in Toronto but were renamed the Maple Leafs.
Quinn coached the Maple Leafs from 1998-2006 and is second on the franchise list for wins (300) and points percentage (.591). Toronto reached the Eastern Conference Final twice and only missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs once during his tenure.
