Public Address Announcer Mike Ross is sick tonight, meaning Simon Bennett has been called up from the Toronto Marlies to host the game tonight. I could be very wrong on this stat, but from what I could dig up the Leafs have only ever had four PA Announcers in their history, meaning Bennett would be the fifth. If someone could correct me on this I would love to add a correction.

Former Leafs:

Carter Verhaeghe — played for the Leafs a long time ago and became one of the original modern “ones that got away.”
Paul Maurice — is the head coach of the Panthers starting this season
Bryan McCabe — is the director of player personnel for Florida
Rick Dudley — was very briefly the director of player personnel in Toronto, is now a senior advisor in Florida
