The Toronto Maple Leafs

Overview

A complete history of the Toronto Maple Leafs, as told by the players, coaches, and fans.

On December 19, 1917, the Toronto Arenas took to the ice for the first NHL game ever played. Over the next hundred years, the franchise changed names twice, stadiums twice, and won thirteen Stanley Cups on its way to becoming one of the most successful and storied franchises in NHL history.

With first-hand accounts of some of the biggest names to ever play the game — Syl Apps, Darryl Sittler, Mats Sundin — as well as the coaches, managers, and fans, Eric Zweig gives readers the full, insider history of Canada’s most iconic team.
