Toronto Maple Leafs fans will be flipping between TSN and Sportsnet again this season in order to see their team’s games. Due to Bell and Rogers owning the team, they are in the unique situation where both networks split the 52 regional games. TSN will have 26 regional games while Sportsnet have 40 national games and only 16 regional – a result of Sportsnet able to upgrade certain regional games to national.
For TSN, Gord Miller and Chris Cuthbert will split play-by-play duties during the season with Ray Ferraro handling colour commentary. All games will be on TSN4. On Sportsnet Ontario, Paul Romanuk, Greg Millen and Christine Simpson will handle commentary duties for the regional games. Nationally, the Leafs will have 20 Hockey Night In Canada matches, 10 on Wednesday Night Hockey and just three Sunday night national appearances.
On radio, TSN Radio 1050 Toronto and Sportsnet The Fan 590 split the games 50-50 with Joe Bowen and Jim Ralph on the call for both networks.
