The latest craze sweeping the NHL is the Ice Bucket Challenge and the Toronto Maple Leafs have decided to get involved.

Players around the league are having buckets full of icy water dumped on their heads to help raise awareness and funds for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

The first Leafs player to take part was Tyler Bozak. The centre was accepting the challenge from the St Louis Blues’ Paul Stastny:

I have to admit I felt a shiver going down my spine there. Of course, the player we’re all most interested in is James van Riemsdyk, who “graciously” accepted Bozak’s challenge:

Van Riemsdyk’s only mistake there was not nominating any other Leafs players (or anyone in general). Hopefully, he’ll rectify that soon.

While we’re on this, do you fancy seeing Sidney Crosby take on the challenge? I thought so.

I’m impressed – the Pittsburgh Penguins captain didn’t injure himself or complain to the officials, which was good to (not) see. Although it should be noted that anyone who refuses to take on the challenge is asked to make a donation to the ALS charity of their choosing.

Which Leaf would you like to see take on the ice bucket challenge?
