The Toronto Maple Leafs landed a solid prospect in Ben Danford in the NHL Draft, and his first act is one that will make many Maple Leafs fans happy.

The first round of the 2024 NHL Draft was full of ups and downs and unpredictable moments, but it was one involving a late pick that drew plenty of attention. With pick No. 31, the Toronto Maple Leafs selected defenseman Ben Danford, and just moments after being selected, he made an intriguing decision that had the world talking.
🚨 Maple Leafs draft pick Ben Danford with the Gary Bettman handshake snub

He's gonna fit in just fine! 😎

When taking to the draft stage, Danford snubbed Gary Bettman's handshake, and it was a move that wasn't overlooked by any fans on social media. Unsurprisingly, most Canadian fans loved the move, although it likely wasn't intentional as he was simply overcome by emotion and focusing on the Maple Leafs regime instead.

There's not going to be any punishment for the moment, as it was likely glossed over by Bettman quickly, who realizes the gravity of the moment for this young men, but it's safe to say it's a moment that Danford won't forget for many reasons.
