History Of The Toronto Maple Leafs
The Toronto Maple Leafs were founded in 1917 and is considered one of the ‘Original Six’ NHL teams. The team first played without a nickname and was known simply as ‘Toronto’ or the Toronto Arenas as they were operated by the Toronto Arena Company. New owners took over the team in 1919 and named it the Toronto St. Patricks and it became the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club after a sale in 1926. The Maple Leafs has the second most Stanley Cup wins in the league with thirteen. The Montreal Canadiens lead the NHL with twenty-four and the Leafs 47-year long drought between championships is the longest in NHL history.
The NHL was formed in 1917 by teams that once belonged to the National Hockey Association. Toronto Blueshirts owner Eddie Livingstone accidently led to the formation of the NHL resulting from a dispute he had with the NHA. The league constitution would not allow the member teams (Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Wanderers, Quebec Bulldogs and Ottawa Senators) to vote him out of the NHA so they formed the NHL. As they still held voting rights to the former NHA the team owners decided to close the NHA which left Livingstone in a league with his team as the only one left and no others to play against. Toronto was granted a ‘temporary’ franchise to play in the new NHL to help balance the playing schedule and the team even consisted of former Blueshirts’ players, but the name was never officially adopted.
The Toronto team colors are blue and white and they play in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.
Top players from the Maple Leafs roster include Wendel Clark (1985-2000), Dave Keon (1960-1975), Darryl Sittler (1970-1982), Mats Sundin (1994-2008) and Borje Salming (1973-1989).
The Toronto Maple Leafs have won 13 Stanley Cups (1917-1918, 1921-1922, 1931-1932, 1941-1942, 1944-1945, 1946-1947, 1947-1948, 1950-1951, 1961-1962, 1962-1963, 1963-1964, 1966-1967) and 5 Division Championships.
