A couple of expert skaters were honored at Air Canada Centre on Saturday.

Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue, the Olympic gold medal winning ice dancing team from Canada, were presented with customized Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys and lavish applause from fans in attendance.

Hockey Hall of Famer Darryl Sittler presented the champions with their jerseys, which had their last names and No. 18 on the back to commemorate the year of their gold.

The pair, natives of London, Ontario who took home the gold from the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, are Maple Leafs fans.

Moir even tweeted out a video ahead of the game of him combining some nice puck handling skills with a few jumps into a penalty shot attempt. [Bonus points for going top shelf on an empty net and an incredible celly. We see you, Scott.]

Tweet from @ScottMoir: Ready for the @mapleleafs game tonight. #putmeinbabsy #goleafsgo #leafsnation.�� @cbc.sports #partner @visaca pic.twitter.com/WIyD09qF0Z

The pair are the first figure skaters in history to win five Olympic medals.
