Canada’s favourite couple ice dancers made an appearance at the Air Canada Centre on Saturday night to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs play.
Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were honoured at the game for their outstanding performance at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games, where they brought home two gold medals. The duo received a standing ovation during a first-period break.
“Tessa and Scott are the Olympics most decorated figure skaters and are the first skaters in history to own five Olympic medals,” the game’s announcer said as Leafs alumnus Darryl Sittler presented them with their own personalized jerseys.
This isn’t the first time Moir has had fun with a Leafs jersey.
Ready for the @mapleleafs game tonight. #putmeinbabsy#goleafsgo#leafsnation

Fellow Olympian Penny Oleksiak was also in the house. Oleksiak, who won four medals at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, tweeted her enthusiasm about being in the same space as the ice dancers, and some mutual gushing ensued.
