In this issue of Toronto Maple Leafs News and Rumors, I will share some insights from a recent interview with former Maple Leafs forward Zach Hyman. Secondly, I will look at the number of remaining contracts for the Maple Leafs team and want to know who has been signed from the team’s current development camp, or if anyone is there.
Third, I want to report that a former Maple Leafs player was recently signed to PTO by the Ottawa Senator-that is Tyler Ennis. Fourth, let me take a look at one of Matt Hellickson’s outstanding young defenders. Finally, I will share the preseason TV schedules of Sportsnet and TSN. This is a clear sign that the regular season of the 2021-22 season is about to begin.
Project 1: Hyman’s expectations of Maple Leaf (and Oilers)
On September 16, the former Maple Leafs and New Edmonton Oilers forward Zach Hyman joins Tim and friends Talk about why he chose the Oilers, his new and old teammates, and what it’s like to play with some of the best hockey players in the world. Another aspect of the interview caught my attention.
Hyman was asked whether he thought it was reasonable for the Maple Leafs and Oilers fans to have high hopes for their team. Not surprisingly, his answer did not directly answer this question, but he did add some insights about his thinking as a Canadian player.
Heyman pointed out: “As a player, you want to enter a market with passionate fans and caring for others. In Toronto, Edmonton and the Canadian market, there are hockey fans. They watch hockey, play hockey, and do Live it. You pair it with elite talent, and these high expectations absolutely make sense.”
The second item: Maple Leaf has three contracts left
According to CapFriendly, the Maple Leafs team has only three of the 50 contract spots left. Assuming that two PTO players-Josh Ho-Sang and Nikita Gusev-performed well and signed a contract, the Maple Leafs only had room to sign a rookie from their development camp. I would love to see who did well in the training camp.
Or, will the team wait to see what happens at the beginning of the season as it did when they signed Alex Galcenjuk last year. By the way, Galchenyuk has not been signed by anyone so far. Is it me, or are there some deep players still waiting for the contract?
Article 3: Former Maple Leafs Tyler Ennis returns to Ottawa
A former Maple Leafs player who just signed is Tyler Ennis. The Senator from Ottawa brought him back to the PTO. Ennis played 61 games for the team in the 2019-20 season and performed well during his time.
Given his experience in the team, Ennis should have a chance to make the list of senators. The team needs the depth of the forward position, and Ennis has shown that he can play at any level, and the senator needs him from the bottom six role to the team’s top six, if needed.
In the 2008 NHL Draft, the Buffalo Sabres selected the well-traveled Ennis with the 28th overall pick. Since then, he has also played for the Minnesota Wilds, Maple Leafs, Senators and the Oilers for the past two seasons.
During his time in Ottawa, Ennis played well in the game before being traded to the Oilers before the deadline, scoring 14 goals and 19 assists (33 points).
That season Hockey news Steven Ellis wrote A post depicting the best goal-scoring deal in the NHL-how much salary all NHL players need for each goal. Interestingly, the best deal is Ennis. The senator hopes that he still has some of this ability. He is only 31 years old.
Fourth item: Matt Herrickson scores again
Matt Hellickson scored his third goal in three games in Sunday’s Rookie Championship as the Maple Leafs top rookie defeated the Dallas Stars top rookie 7-3. Hellickson looked good in the game. According to Stan Smith, a fan of the Maple Leafs, a writer I often work with, Herrickson is one of the most impressive young prospects for the Maple Leafs. He is actually a teammate of Alex Steves, another rookie of the Maple Leafs at Notre Dame, where he is also the alternate captain.
Herickson performed well in his college career, playing 146 games, scoring 13 goals and 39 assists (52 points). He was selected by the New Jersey Devils as a seventh-round rookie in the 2017 NHL Draft. The Toronto Mali team signed a one-year AHL contract with the young defender. Let us hope he looks as good as he looks.
What’s next for Maple Leaf?
Hockey is coming, and Maple Leafs fans will soon be able to see their team on TV. Both Sportsnet and TSN will broadcast all six Maple Leafs preseason games. TSN will air the Toronto game on September 27th in Montreal, September 29th in Ottawa and October 5th against Montreal. Sportsnet will broadcast the Maple Leafs game against Montreal on September 25, Ottawa on October 4 and Ottawa on October 9.
Prepare the fans-the season is about to begin.

He is a Canadian boy with two degrees from the University of Kentucky and a doctorate from the University of Texas. He is now retired on Vancouver Island and lives with his family. His hobbies include playing his hockey card and simply becoming a sports fan-hockey, Toronto Raptors and CFL football (thinking that Ricky Ray is the embodiment of how professional athletes should act).
If you want to know why he didn’t use his real name, it’s because his son—also Jim Parsons—for Hockey writer First, Jim Sr. is asked to use another name so that readers will not confuse their work.
Because Jim Sr. used to work in China, he called the teacher (teacher) in Mandarin. The first word lǎo (老) means “old”, and the second word shī (师) means “teacher”. The literal translation of lǎoshī is “old teacher”. This became his pen name.Today, except for writing Hockey writer, He teaches graduate research design at several Canadian universities.
