Maple Leafs respond to young fan’s birthday
The Toronto Maple Leafs weren’t about to let this birthday go unnoticed. Nor was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The father of an 11-year-old Maple Leafs fan tweeted that his son had a disappointing birthday, with none of his friends showing up for a Saturday night party.
Jason Foster asked those on Twitter to remember young Kade and “show him some love.” A photo linked to the tweet shows Kade in a Maple Leafs T-shirt, a Maple Leafs cake in front of him.
The team got to work. Forward Mitch Marner tweeted that Kade’s “friends from the Maple Leafs have a surprise gift coming your way!” Forward John Tavares added he was “looking forward to celebrating” with Kade.
