The game will be played at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and the Maple Leafs used the Royal Canadian Navy as inspiration for their uniform design, according to the team.
“The Maple Leafs have had a very long and proud association with our Armed Forces throughout the years and this special game is an important opportunity for us to not only pay tribute to the Royal Canadian Navy, but to also say thank you to the many men and women who serve our country so bravely,” team president Brendan Shanahan said in a statement. “This unique uniform, to mark a unique occasion, celebrates the traditions of both the Royal Canadian Navy and the Toronto Maple Leafs and it will be a great honour for our players to wear this sweater next month.”
The Maple Leafs and Capitals will faceoff outdoors at Navy on March 3.
