Leafs Make $2 Million Commitment to Hockey Canada
14 novembre 2006

The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Leafs Fund announced Tuesday they have made a $2 million commitment to Hockey Canada to support development programs and initiatives. The $2 million financial commitment announcement was made at the Hockey Hall of Fame by Leafs General Manager John Ferguson and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Anselmi.

"As one of the Original Six NHL teams we're seen as leaders in hockey, so it's important that the Leafs also take a leadership position in continuing to further develop the sport, ensuring its future remains strong," said Ferguson. "Given hockey’s changing landscape, it’s important we continue to support player development at all levels.”

The $2 million commitment is the single largest grant made to any organization by the Leafs Fund. The money will be used to support different levels of hockey programming.
"We wanted to make a difference in hockey development, so we looked to the Leafs Fund and Leafs Hockey Development," Anselmi said. "Our financial commitment to Hockey Canada through the Leafs Fund will have a positive impact on many future hockey players whose goal is to play professionally or just want to play the game."
