With hockey season just underway, the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to energize their fan base, and what better way to do so than with a new video starring Leafs fan and Toronto native Will Arnett talking about what it means to root for the team.

The team held a fan festival before its opening game loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday, which was attended by many of its die-hard fans, and a cat.
