The Toronto Maple Leafs were founded in 1917 as the Toronto Arenas. One of the “Original Six” NHL teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs was created so there would be an even number of teams in the newly created NHL, which only had three teams after the Quebec Bulldogs suspended operations. The Arenas won the first NHL Stanley Cup in 1918.
After legal disputes, the Arena Company, which owned the Arenas, was forced to sell the team in 1919. The team’s new owners, who were made up of former executives from the amateur league team, the Toronto St. Patricks, changed the Arenas name to the St. Patricks.
In 1927, the team was sold once again, and their name was changed to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Over the next 40 years, the Toronto Maple Leafs brought 11 Stanley Cup championships to Canada’s largest city.
Since 1999, the Toronto Maple Leafs have called Air Canada Centre home, and today, the Maple Leafs are led by head coach Mike Babcock. Top players on the team include centers Leo Komarov and Tyler Bozak, and winger James Van Riemsdyk.
