January 4, 2019 9:48 PM Saturday NHL preview: Vancouver Canucks at Toronto Maple Leafs

Vancouver’s Bo Horvat, with 36 points in 42 games, is on pace to shatter his career high of 52 points from two seasons ago. The 23-year-old centre, drafted ninth overall in 2013, is also the NHL’s top faceoff man ... Leafs centre John Tavares, selected to play in the all-star game for the sixth time, was third in the NHL in goals through Thursday with 26. Vancouver’s 157

January 3, 2019 2:45 AM Maple Leafs’ John Tavares going to all-star game

Marner, with the league lead in primary assits (31), sits sixth in NHL scoring, while Rielly leads NHL defenceman in scoring and is solidly in the conversation for the Norris Trophy. Andersen, who will miss his fourth game with a groin injury, is among the league leaders in wins with 20. But if Leaf fans feel snubbed, they aren’t alone. The all-star 143

November 30, 2018 7:56 PM Leafs’ Marner graduates with honours from ‘primary’ school

The depth of the Leafs’ lineup — even in the absence of restricted free-agent William Nylander, and during Auston Matthews’ absence with a shoulder injury — goes a long way. The Leafs have four lines built on speed, skill and puck control, allowing Marner a bit more room to freelance than others. “We’re not three or four guys dangerous; we’re three and four lines 123

November 27, 2018 4:18 PM Maple Leaf Foods gets $34.5 million for London plant from Ontario government

“It is an old plant, and given the area it’s in, it’s pretty much at capacity and there’s no room for expansion,” said Taylor, central region director for UFCW Canada Local 1006A, of the Toronto plant. “The company confirmed that they will be provided with opportunities to go to the London plant, and … they do have other plants in the Toronto area where 182

November 26, 2018 10:48 PM Maple Leaf Foods to build new London plant, shutter three others in Ontario

The facility will span nearly 60,000 square metres and employ 1,450 full- and part-time workers once operations begin, which is expected in the second quarter of 2021. Construction will begin this spring. Production from three of Maple Leaf’s other plants will eventually be consolidated into the new facility, the company said. Its St. Marys plant is expected 102

November 24, 2018 11:24 PM Malvern rec centre gets fresh look with assist from Raptors, OVO

Scores of young people came out to the Malvern Community Recreation Centre on the weekend to check out a newly refurbished gymnasium, one of four projects sponsored by the Toronto Raptors and OVO, the company owned by hip hop artist Drake. The gym, sporting a fresh coat of paint, a new scoreboard — with a water-bottle fill-up station on the way — is part of the Welcome 187

November 2, 2018 7:52 PM Pressure mounts on Tavares, Babcock and Dubas to produce with Leafs struggling

He started with 10 points, including six goals, in his first five games. No chance he was going to keep up that blistering pace. In his last five games, he has one goal and two assists, and against the Stars he just missed on a couple of spectacular chances. We know he saw coming to Toronto as the chance of a lifetime. Well, now he’s up to his hips in all that being 160

October 30, 2018 12:08 AM A month without Matthews hurts Leafs in many ways

On the surface, Auston Matthews looks like the laboratory-built vision of the ideal hockey player. A strapping six-foot-three and 220-some pounds, he skates like a dream, shoots like a laser, plays keepaway like it’s glued to his stick. Certainly he’s put up the numbers to justify the fawning. With 84 goals in 155 games as a Maple Leaf, nobody’s scored 234

October 25, 2018 10:34 PM Andersen makes his mark on Leafs on ice and off

Scot Prohaska, the southern California performance coach, is not a fortune teller. But it says something about his eye for athletic detail that he detected a difference in Frederik Andersen a couple of months back, this shortly after Andersen headed off to Maple Leafs training camp after another offseason spent grinding in Prohaska’s famed L.A. gym. “I know sometimes 144

October 9, 2018 5:57 PM Leafs veteran Kadri learns to roll with the punches as new season brings new role

He has more followers on Twitter than any other Maple Leaf. His cat, @JazzyKadri, has an Instagram following. A fan recently named her baby boy “Kadri.” “That’s surreal,” said Kadri. “I love the name for a first name. I’m privileged and honoured to try to be a role model for youth. I’m sure his parents are great fans of ours.” Kadri has more than 239,000 followers 125
