     History
    Maple Leaf Gardens is a former indoor arena in Toronto, on the northwest corner of Carlton Street and Church Street.

    One of the temples of hockey, it was home to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League from 1931–1999. The Leafs won 13 Stanley Cups from 1932–1967 while playing at the Gardens. A Benefit All-Star Game was held at the Gardens in 1934 as a benefit for Leafs forward Ace Bailey, who suffered from a career-ending injury. The first annual National Hockey League All-Star Game was also held at Maple Leaf Gardens in 1947.

    It was home to the Toronto Huskies (1946–1947) in their single season in the Basketball Association of America (a forerunner of the National Basketball Association), the Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey League, the Toronto Toros of the World Hockey Association (1974–1976), the Toronto Blizzard of the North American Soccer League (1980–1982 indoor seasons), the Toronto Shooting Stars of the National Professional Soccer League (1996–1997), and the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League (1999–2000). The NBA's Buffalo Braves played 16 home games at the Gardens in three seasons from 1971–1975. The NBA's Toronto Raptors played some games at the Gardens from 1995–1999, mostly when SkyDome was unavailable.

    It was also one of the few venues outside of the United States where Elvis Presley performed in concert and the only site to host The Beatles in all three of their North American tours. In 1972 Maple Leaf Gardens hosted game 2 of the famous Summit Series between Team Canada and the USSR. Team Canada won the game 4–1.

     Future Plans

    Written by Aleysha Haniff

    Preliminary drawings of the inside of Maple Leaf Gardens show students will have to climb to the third floor to skate the ice of Ryerson's athletics complex in 2011. The drawings are just the latest renditions provided by BBB Architects & Stadium Consultants International, and the final design could still change, said Ryerson President Sheldon Levy.

    "I think it's fantastic. I think it'll be just an unbelievable design," Levy said.

    Currently, the second floor will hold the basketball and volleyball courts. They're slated to be positioned off to the side to give the playing areas high ceilings.

    The third floor, Levy said, will hold the ice rink. The positioning of the rink was decided first and the other facilities were planned around it, he said. It'd be possible to see onto the courts from this level.

    The concourse level would allow spectators to look down on the ice rink, he said.

    Some of the space on the drawings have been "roughed in," with facilities to be decided later.

    "We're not even getting into speculation of what else because we have to be open in a year from now," Levy said.

    Most of the changes that could be incorporated into later drawings would involve structural issues or budgetary considerations.

    The project is budgeted at $60 million, with $20 million coming from student fees once it's completed.

    Costing the plans will take about six weeks. If it exceeds the school's budget, plans will have to be rejigged, Levy said.
