The Toronto Maple Leafs will have all 82 of their regular season games shown on television, but here is the Rogers Sports Ontario portion of their 2011-2012 broadcast schedule.
The Toronto Maple Leafs will call Sportsnet Ontario home for 29 regular-season games in 2011/12 – more than any other Canadian broadcaster.
Sportsnet Ontario's Molson Canadian Leafs Hockey coverage gets underway on Monday, October 17th at 7:00 PM ET when the Leafs host the Colorado Avalanche. Coverage throughout the season features six divisional-rival games, including five against fellow Canadian teams.
"Toronto is a hockey-hungry market, and the appetite for Leafs hockey remains extremely strong," said Navaid Mansuri, Vice President of Finance & Sports Programming, Rogers Broadcasting Ltd. "Our goal is to expand the fan experience and make Hockeycentral the destination before and after Leafs games."
The Leafs made a series of summer moves to end its lengthy post-season drought, acquiring help on defence in Cody Franson and John-Michael Liles while addressing depth at the centre position by adding Matthew Lombardi. Once again, the team will look to sophomore goaltender James Reimer to stop pucks, the rookie won 20 games in his first season, including three shutouts.
Leafs fans are invited to join Hockeycentral 30 minutes before and immediately following every Leafs broadcast for all the latest news and analysis. Hockeycentral features popular analysts Nick Kypreos, a former Maple Leaf, Doug MacLean, a former general manager for the Columbus Blue Jackets, and host Daren Millard.
As an added bonus, Sportsnet will deliver to fans the Leafs pre-season game on Wednesday, September 21st at 7:00 PM (ET) when the Leafs face the Philadelphia Flyers.
