11

I believe the Leafs just tied the franchise record for most times shutout in a season, with 11. Also happened in 1953-54 and 1963-64.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are twenty-fourth in the NHL with 2.54 goals scored per game. The only teams trailing them are the Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, Florida Panthers, Edmonton Oilers, Ottawa Senators, and New Jersey Devils. Their powerplay functions at a 15.9% clip which is also 'good' for twenty-fourth in the league. The only teams trailing them here? The Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, New Jersey, Nashville, Florida, and Edmonton. The Leafs have been lucky that they pick up power plays at a higher pace than all but two other teams. That means that their 46 powerplay goals on 290 opportunities plants them at thirteenth in the league.

Despite this last fact and in part as a result of the first one, the Maple Leafs have been shutout eleven times this season. At one point there was talk that the Leafs were going to match the NHL record for most times being shutout in one season. Instead, they'll just enter the franchise's record book. Thank God for small mercies.
