by Staff Writer / Toronto Maple Leafs

“The return of the World Cup of Hockey is great news for hockey fans everywhere and especially for fans in Toronto and Canada,” said Larry Tanenbaum, Chairman of MLSE and NHL Governor. “This event will not only shine a spotlight on this great game and its stars, but it will also bring a very positive economic impact for the city and its businesses. We’re thrilled to be selected as host for the World Cup and want to thank Don Fehr and the players, as well as Gary Bettman, Bill Daly, John Collins and the NHL for believing in Toronto. We also owe a great deal of thanks to the Mayor’s office in Toronto, both to Norm Kelly as former Deputy Mayor and John Tory as Mayor, for all of their support in helping bring the World Cup of Hockey to Toronto in 2016.”
