Toronto's Growing Buzz for a Second NHL Team

Published October 4, 2023 at 7:17 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have long been one of the NHL's most supported teams, and with such a huge market, it appears that there's growing buzz for a potential second team.

GTA to hold two teams?


While it's nothing close to becoming a reality, the buzz is growing for the greater Toronto area to get a second NHL team, as many believe the market is perfect for a rival to the Maple Leafs.

Similar to @NHL in terms of no official process, yet plenty of interest expressed from the following and more ** In No Particular Order**
- Quebec City
- Salt Lake City
- South Forsyth (Metro Atlanta)
- Houston
- Portland
- San Diego
- 2nd Club GTA Toronto

Expansion coming again?

After the success of the Seattle Kraken and Vegas Golden Knights, the NHL are interested in expanding once more, and while Quebec City, Salt Lake City, Atlanta and other teams have priority, this would be an interesting dynamic.

While the Maple Leafs would retain many of their fans in Toronto, we've seen it in New York and Los Angeles in multiple sports, and it would create a great rivalry for Canadian fans and the NHL as a whole, so this is one to keep an eye on.
