On Wednesday night, the Toronto Maple Leafs honoured Tragically Hip frontman, Gord Downie before their game against the Detroit Red Wings at the Air Canada Centre, which included a moment of silence.
Also, the banner of Bill Barilko, who is mentioned in the song “50 Mission Cap” was partially lowered as part of the ceremony.
No matter which team you cheer for, this was an awesome gesture by the Leafs. Watch the video below.
Downie passed away on Tuesday night after his battle with brain cancer. He was 53 years old.
