The highlights above include the Toronto Maple Leafs Pre Season game against the senators, where Alex Steve and Tim Stutzle score.

Maple Leafs Pre Season

The Maple Leafs’ pre-season begins with the 2023-2024 season right around the corner. The Maple Leafs are trying extremely hard to win the next Stanley Cup, where they spent 11.3 million dollars in the off season for training, new players, new equipment, and even extending players contracts. For $54.7 million, Austin Matthews stays the next four years. New players gained from the draft were Easton Crowan, Hudson Malinoski, and Noah Chadwick. We are projected to be one of the best teams in the NHL next season with the re-signing of Austin Matthew and still having William Nylander, Mitch Marner, Max Domi, and Matthew Knives.

The History of The Leafs

1918 was The Toronto Maple Leafs first season in the NHL. The owner of the Leafs was also their coach for the season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ first season was in 1918 and, since then, they have grown rapidly. They’ve gained a massive following and have become one of the best teams in the NHL because of their great players. The Toronto Maple Leafs have been in the NHL for 106 years and their first owner was Conn Smythe. In 1927, he purchased the club for $10,000 and renamed The Toronto Arenas to the Toronto Maple Leafs. This club is a known member of the “Original Six”, as they were one of six NHL teams to have endured the period of League Retrenchment during the Great Depression.

Alex Steve (above) is one of the players who scored on the Senators. He is a left wing and second string.

Old vs. New

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been consistent with getting new players and renewing players’ contracts. For existing players, they recently extended Austin Matthews’s contract when re-signing him. They signed three new people from the 2023-2024 NHL Draft: Eston Crowman for $2.85 million for three years, Noah Chadwick for $1.3 million, and Hudson Malinoski for $2.1 million.
