'King Clancy'
Gameworn 1986/1987.
The Leafs wore this patch to honour their former player Francis 'King' Clancy who died on November 10th, 1986. Clancy played 16 seasons in the NHL - nine for the Ottawa Senators and seven for the Toronto Maple Leafs. After his retirement he was coach/assistant coach for some AHL and NHL teams and team executive of the Maple Leafs.
Clancy was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1958.
The King Clancy Memorial Trophy was named in his honour and is awarded annually to the player who, by example demonstrates leadership qualities on and off the ice and who has made exceptional humanitarian contributions in the community.
