The Story

Toronto's inclusion in the NHL's inaugural season was formally announced on November 26, 1917; The League granted temporary franchise rights to the Arena Company, owners of the Arena Gardens.The NHL granted the Arena responsibility of the Toronto franchise for only the inaugural season.The franchise did not have an official name, but was informally called "the Blueshirts" or "the Torontos" by the fans and press.Although the inaugural roster was made up of players leased from the NHA's Toronto Blueshirts, including Harry Cameron and Reg Noble, the Maple Leafs do not claim the Blueshirts' history as their own.Under manager Charlie Querrie, and head coach Dick Carroll, the team won the Stanley Cup in the inaugural 1917–18 season.
