Maple Leafs re­spond to young fan’s birth­day

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - SPORTS -

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.
