Justin Bieber recently visited the NHL Powered by Reebok Store in New York, and Thursday he finally got to show off his new jersey.

Bieber got a personalized Toronto Maple Leafs jersey with No. 6 on the back and captain's 'C' on the front May 7, and he wore it on stage at his concert at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

No. 6 is retired by the Maple Leafs for Hockey Hall of Fame member Ace Bailey.

Bieber wore a Chicago Blackhawks jersey while posing with the Stanley Cup three years ago. More recently he was given an Edmonton Oilers jersey by Wayne Gretzky at a show in Las Vegas earlier this year.
