(November 14, 2004) --The City of Peterborough, Ontario was the packed site of the second 'Toronto Maple Leafs Road Hockey Day' on Saturday afternoon. Held outdoors at the Peterborough Memorial Centre, nine hundred exuberant road hockey players took part in a full day of free hockey fun and children's activities with the help of the National Hockey League club.

Highlighting the event, Peterborough Flood Relief was the beneficiary of a cash donation of $10,000 from the re-launched Maple Leafs charitable arm, the Leafs Fund, resulting in a matching contribution of $20,000 from the provincial government to commemorate the tournament.

"The Leafs Fund is delighted to make this donation to this very worthy cause in the hockey hotbed community of Peterborough," said John Lashway, vice president of communications and community development for the hockey club.

"The mission of the Leafs Fund is to encourage health and wellness in the lives of children in our community. Today's event is a terrific way to celebrate the recovery efforts of the Peterborough community. It's also a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon enjoying a game of road hockey."

Peterborough Mayor Sylvia Sutherland was joined by former Pete and current Maple Leafs assistant coach Keith Acton, Leafs' mascot Carlton the Bear, and the NHL club's game operations crew at the road hockey tournament that included boys and girls, and men and women of all ages.
