The Toronto Maple Leafs are at CFB Trenton for the next 3 days on a team building exercise and their practices are open to the public. Trenton, ON is obviously Leaf country as there were so many people out that they had to let people in to view the practice in 20 minute shifts. Autographs at the arena were really not happening. David Steckel was the only player to come out and sign for people. We thought the day was done, but we lucked out in our parking spot in that the bus went out right in front of us. We had to go in the same direction as the bus to go home anyway, so we just lagged behind it a bit. It pulled off into the mess hall on the base and it was open to the public there as well. We lucked out really and got most of the team to sign for us there.
Dion Phaneuf is a true class act. I mean, all of the Leaf players were super nice, but Dion really stood out for me. He even thanked the lunch ladies at the mess hall for lunch on his way out. He was the last person to board the bus after signing for everyone. Way to go Dion! That is the way a true captain should be.
Nazem Kadri signed this puck.
John-Michael Liles, David Steckel and Nikolai Kulemin.
