Sportsnet releases 2023 NHL pre-season broadcast schedule
As most training camps come to a close, the real fun begins for hockey fans: a chance to see your team in action once more. Catch your favourite match-ups on Sportsnet and Sportsnet+.

Presumably, and based on previous Septembers, the Leafs will send one squad that they've been practicing with (probably Nylander, Rielly, and friends) and keep the other group in Toronto.
