WATCH: Carey Marsden finds out what other Leafs fans think of the actions of the men who threw their jerseys on ice.
TORONTO – Using the hashtag #Jerseygate, Toronto Police confirmed on 桑拿会所 that three men have been ticketed for throwing their jerseys onto the ice at the Air Canada Centre Monday night.
They were ticketed for engaging in “prohibited activity,” a non-criminal provincial offence.
Police also confirm they were escorted out of the ACC during the game against the Carolina Hurricanes and are banned from all Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment properties for a year.
The Hurricanes won the game 4-1, and Leafs jerseys were flung onto the ice four times, at least once during play and not while a stoppage in play.

The loss to Carolina adds to the Leafs’ five-game losing streak.
They’ve won 22 games this season and have lost the same amount.
It’s not the first time fans have thrown their frustration on the ice.
They were thrown in October, when the Toronto team lost against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and again when they fell to the Detroit Red Wings later that month.
WATCH: Leafs players react to the banning of the men from MLSE property for throwing their jerseys on the ice.
The MLSE has told Global news that throwing things onto the ice could result in a trespassing charge and “some sort of ban” from the building.
Players reacted after the game. Forward Phil Kessel told the Toronto Sun, “we don’t appreciate that, obviously.” He added, “we’re trying. I don’t know if people see that, but we are trying.”
“I don’t how that happens, what security or the ushers are doing,” Nazem Kadri said. “It seems like we’re giving the guy an extra couple minutes to flip everybody off and to mock our real fans.”
