TORONTO, Sept. 8, 2016 /CNW/ - As part of the Toronto Maple Leafs Centennial Season celebrations during the 2016-17 NHL season, the team will unveil The One Hundred presented by Canadian Tire, the official list of the 100 greatest players in Toronto Maple Leafs history. A selection committee of 30 prominent members of the hockey community will determine the list, with Leafs Nation serving as the final member.
"We're looking forward to honouring the greatest players in the history of our franchise with the help of our fans," said Brendan Shanahan, Toronto Maple Leafs President and Alternate Governor. "The One Hundred will serve as a celebration of the Maple Leafs' most memorable moments and accomplishments as we begin our Centennial Season."
From Thursday, September 8 to Saturday, September 17, fans will have the opportunity to visit MapleLeafs.com/TheOneHundred to vote for the players they believe belong on the list. To assist with the selection, the players will be grouped by era and each profile will include the player's full name, photo, position, seasons/games played, statistics and highlight video. Fans who vote will be entered into a draw to win various Maple Leafs prizes throughout the contest period. The list will be announced in October as part of a special presentation.
To receive information for all Centennial Season events and activities, fans can sign up for Leafs Nation by visiting MapleLeafs.com/LeafsNation.
