As part of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ ban­ner tour, the ban­ner that hung at Air Canada Cen­tre hon­our­ing Dar­ryl Sit­tler will make its way to the St. Ja­cobs Farmers’ Market on Saturday.

On opening night 2016, the Maple Leafs un­veiled new ban­ners that now hang in Air Canada Cen­tre and pay tribute to the play­ers that have had their num­bers re­tired. Be­gin­ning in Au­gust of 2016, and con­clud­ing by the De­cem­ber 19 “Next Cen­tury game,” 19 original Air Canada Cen­tre ban­ners will be de­liv­ered to the towns that these play­ers called home.
