Maple Leaf Gardens to host college hockey
Question of the Day
TORONTO (AP) - Toronto’s storied Maple Leaf Gardens will resound again with the clash of sticks and pucks as the home ice for Ryerson University.
The Gardens will reopen in the spring for the first time since 1999, when the Maple Leafs moved to the Air Canada Centre after nearly seven decades at the old arena.
Though the ice has not been installed, the centerpiece of Ryerson’s new athletic complex was open for a preview Tuesday.
The multi-use Maple Leaf Gardens also will house a grocery store and clothing outlet. The retail space is scheduled to open Wednesday, and the arena in May.
Tie Domi played in the last game the Leafs hosted at the Gardens. He says it’s going to be “a real great destination for downtown Toronto, and I think it revitalizes the whole area.”
