The Leafs were out in the cold Thursday, wearing all-black jerseys with no black shorts and white socks, and all of their gear.
In a bit of a contrast to last season, when they wore black and white shorts, the Leafs didn’t have any lympedema compression clothing or socks, so the players were wearing normal socks.
Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello wore a white cap to the press conference and was asked about the jerseys and socks.
“It’s just a little bit different.
It’s just different because we don’t have lympeds [compression clothing],” Lamoriell said.
“So we’re wearing a little more of a sports jersey and we’re not wearing lympes.”
“So I thought we were going to have to get a little bolder on that,” he added.
Lamorielli said the team has been experimenting with different ways of fitting the team, and that the decision to wear lymphes was something they have been working on.
The Leafs have been outfitted with lympingas, compression clothing, and socks, but they have yet to have a practice wearing lymbedema clothing or the socks. “
And I think it’s kind of working out really well,” Lamoriella said.

Lamoryll was asked if the team will have to wear the lympeda or not.
“No, not at this point,” he said.
Lamoriello was asked by reporters if they will be wearing the lymbeds.
“Not at this time, no,” he responded.
“We haven’t gone through the process with that.
It was a little late, but we’ll see what happens with that.”
The team’s equipment was not on display Thursday.
The team is scheduled to practice on Friday morning, which is when they will have the full equipment on display.
