The Maple Leafs will take the ice Wednesday sporting new “third” jerseys designed by Canadian pop star and diamond-certified recording artist Justin Bieber.

The two-time Grammy winner, who grew up a Leafs fan in Stratford, Ontario, collaborated with his fashion brand Drew House and Adidas (official outfitter of the NHL) on the design, which includes elements of “Shibori” (a Japanese tie-day technique), a silhouette of Toronto’s famous skyline, black numbering and a blue logo crest, among other features. The “Next Gen” jerseys (now available for purchase on are notable for being the league’s first reversable sweaters, with an alternate black and yellow pattern visible when turned inside out.

The jersey design was leaked when television personality Martha Stewart shared an Instagram photo of Bieber wearing one earlier this month. A devoted hockey fan, the 28-year-old can play a little too, contributing a goal and an assist for Team Gretzky in the NHL All-Star Game Celebrity Game when it was held in Los Angeles in 2017.

The Leafs will debut their new threads when they host New Jersey Wednesday night at Scotiabank Arena.
