Fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs were on hand to witness the team show off their skills on Sunday.....against each other!
Yes, it was the 19th annual Toronto Maple Leafs Skills Competition and it featured a lot of fun for everyone involved as well as raising over $90,000 for charity.
Some of the highlights included Nikolai Kulemin winning the fastest skater and Phil Kessel winning hardest shot honors with a shot that hit the net at an incredible 99.5 miles per hour!
The recently snake bitten Kris Versteeg had the highlight of the day with this little bit of fun at the officials' expense!
The fun continues Tuesday night as fromer Leaf Wade Belak and the Nashville Predators roll into the hanger to face a Toronto Maple Lea roster that lost it's eighth consecutive game Saturday night, played the Canucks very well in a game that featured more than it's fair share of odditys all around.
Brian Burk was said to be attending the Anaheim Ducks vs Chicago Blackhawks game and the rumor mill is once again in full swing.
Mikhael Grabokski, arguably the Leaf most reliably consistent player for most of this young season has recently started to find a scoring touch scoring three goals and six points in the last five games. He is also a +7 to lead the team and is tied for second in point with nine.
Not bad for a kid who only cost the Leafs some guy named Greg Pateryn and a second round pick that ended up being Stephan Elliot drafted 49th over all by the Colorado Avalanche.
More good news for the Leafs as youngsters Nazem Kadri and Kieth Aullie both looked pretty good in their first NHL games of the season against Vancouver.
Still win less in the month of November, the Toronto Maple Leafs are inexplicably still very much in the thick of things in the Eastern Conference.
Judging by the attitudes of the players at the festivities on Sunday, it seems as though they have taken the good from the loss on Saturday and left the bad where it should be.
