Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser, Hockey Hall of Famer and one of the most decorated women's players of all time, has been promoted to assistant general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Wickenheiser, whose focus will be player development, originally joined the Leafs as assistant director of player development in August 2018 and was eventually promoted to senior director of player development in 2021. A six-time Olympian and four-time gold medalist in women's ice hockey, Wickenheiser completed medical school at the University of Calgary in 2021.
Wickenheiser is the latest in a wave of women who have been hired as assistant general managers in the NHL, joining Emilie Castonguay and Cammi Granato with the Vancouver Canucks and Meghan Hunter with the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Leafs also promoted Darryl Metcalf and Ryan Hardy to assistant general manager positions. Metcalf was promoted to assistant general manager for hockey research and development. He is in his ninth season with the Maple Leafs. He was the founder of the hockey analytics site Extra Skater before the Leafs hired him for their new analytics department in 2014.

Watching the Colorado Avalanche in the Stanley Cup Final, it’s fair to say they’d have beat up on the Toronto Maple Leafs just as bad. Now with a two-nil lead in the series heading to Tampa, the Avalanche are looking near unstoppable and there’s no reason to think it would’ve been any different if it were the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Stanley Cup Final. This website was great. how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally, I have found something that helped me. Cheers! stream nfr live

Seriously, do a search for "Mitch Marner Goal" and look at all the image results. That's the same face in all of them.
In case you haven't heard, Jeremy Bracco is terrorizing the Canadian Hockey League (CHL).Last night, Bracco scored the overtime winner for the Kitchener Rangers against fellow Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Stephen Desrocher to extend his CHL-best point streak to 26 games.The 2015 61st overall pick has point in every single game he has played this year. He sits third in Ontario Hockey League (OHL) scoring with 17 goals, 34 assists and 51 points this season.
PPP has done an exemplary job of covering the higher levels of women's hockey this season. If you want to see some of the up and comers, take a look at the OWHA Provincial Championships. Senior AA and Midget AA is some really good hockey. And remember, there's no gate fee for girls hockey in the OWHA. Hit a rink and watch all day. If you happen to watching a Bluewater Hawks team, cheer loud for the girls, one may be mine!
Toronto Marlies mascot Duke needs your help! In the AHL's Mascot Madness voting, he's falling far behind Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins mascot Tux in voting to move on to the next round.
Leafs fans, we can not stand for this. The best AHL team can't see it's mascot lose to a penguin.
Head over in the link above and vote for Duke!
Nikita Soshnikov took an awkward fall into the boards during the first period of tonight's game against the Buffalo Sabres. As you can see in the above gif, Soshnikov was trying to go for a check but tripped over his intended target and instead went down backwards.
Soshnikov lay on the ice for a few scary minutes while the Leafs trainer came out. He was escorted off the ice to the quiet room, but returned to the Leafs bench near three-quarter mark of the period.
Earlier in the period, he tallied his first NHL assist on a goal by Leo Komarov.
