The Maple Leafs are collaborating with Niagara Children’s Centre throughout their visit to Niagara Falls for the club’s 2017 training camp.
Niagara Children’s Centre volunteers will be present at the Gale Centre during Maple Leafs training camp events to distribute information on the facility and collect donations.
All proceeds from training camp ticket sales will benefit Niagara Children’s Centre.
The Leafs will hold this year’s training camp at the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls.
The team plans on giving fans the opportunity to watch training-camp activities including practices, scrimmages, an alumni game, and various outdoor activities.
Johnny Corneil scored the overtime winner exactly half-way through the extra period as the IceDogs prevailed 3-2 over visiting Hamilton for Niagara's fifth win in six meetings versus the Bulldogs. Stephen Dhillon was also big stopping 41 shots for the IceDogs fifth straight victory.
IceDogs forward Kirill Maksimov has been signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the Edmonton Oilers. A year ago, the Oilers signed 'Dogs captain Ryan Mantha to an entry-level contract as well.
The IceDogs finished off a perfect three for three weekend with a 3-2 home ice win Sunday over Windsor. Akil Thomas was in on all three markers with a goal and two assists.
