Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment chief operating officer Tom Anselmi resigns

TORONTO - Tom Anselmi is stepping down as chief operating officer of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment.

The company, which owns the Maple Leafs, Raptors, Toronto FC and Marlies, announced his resignation Friday in a news release.

Anselmi first joined the organization in December 1996 and was appointed COO in 2004.

His resignation is the latest in a series of major changes at MLSE since new president and CEO Tim Leiweke took over June 30.

The company parted ways with Raptors boss Bryan Colangelo earlier this summer and Toronto FC president and general manager Kevin Payne was fired this week.

Anselmi's last day with the company will be Sept. 13.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
