Leafs players wear Team Canada sweaters after losing Olympic bet

A pair of Scandinavian players on the Toronto Maple Leafs are paying up on a friendly Olympic wager.

Center Leo Komarov, who is part Finnish, and right wing William Nylander, who is Swedish, wore Team Canada sweaters to practice on Wednesday after losing a bet with their coaches. Here is footage, via Mark Masters of TSN.

Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun provided more context about the bet.

For reference, Canada defeated Finland 1-0 in their men’s hockey quarterfinal on Wednesday in PyeongChang. Meanwhile, Sweden did not cross paths with Canada, but also got eliminated in the quarterfinal with a 4-3 loss to Germany.

While the Leafs’ bet definitely made for a classic moment, it is probably only the second funniest storyline we have seen involving Canadian hockey at this year’s Games.
