HEY, GOOD LOOKIN': In Toronto, Lance Hornby notes the Maple Leafs have "made the move to an eye-catching ice-cleaning team of young women to shovel excess snow and clear any hazards during regular stoppages." After a "series of 'tryouts,' 10 hockey enthusiasts were picked for the inaugural Maple Leafs Ice Crew," which started with last Monday's game against the Blue Jackets. The crew members "clean the entire ice three times a period." MLSE VP/Marketing & Communications Shannon Hosford said, "This is something our fans said they wanted. We had used a female group for a couple of games. It has been successful with other NHL clubs." Hornby noted the women on the Ice Crew, "with an average age of early 20s," will be "paid $70 a night" (TORONTO SUN, 3/8).
