The Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Montreal Canadiens for the second time this season and Leafs fans everywhere celebrated. Even quite talented ones in Montreal! Someone on Twitter found an old tweet from Habs centre Nick Suzuki as he cheered on his hometown Maple Leafs against the Habs all the way back when I was in high school in 2013.

You know what I’m going to say next: when the time is right, we’re bringing our boy home. We love centres from Toronto, and they love us! And they always have a “1” in their number.

Friedman also seems to think the Leafs are in on a winger. It’s Taylor Hall. Remember that I told you so.

Akilah Thomas writes about her son and the strength she found and then taught him as a hockey mom. [Hockey Canada]

“It taught me that it’s alright to share my tricks, my mindset, my habits, my schedules and my love … to boost up other kids, not just mine.

“Even though I’ve never played a game, hockey has shaped a lot of me. I’m proud of who it has helped me become, but to see the amazing man it has helped my son become – that’s all a mother could ask for.”
