Toronto Maple Leafs hockey is returning to Scotiabank Arena, and with that comes other hockey events, too!
The Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic is back in Toronto on Sunday, November 14th.
It’s part of Induction Weekend, which is when a few of hockey’s legends are inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The class of 2020 will feature Doug Wilson, Kim St-Pierre, Kevin Lowe, Jarome Iginla, Marian Hossa, and Ken Holland.
Throughout the weekend, there will be a number of events. The first, on Friday, November 12th, is the Hockey Hall of Fame game where the Leafs take on the Calgary Flames. This game is a part of the NHL’s 2021-22 season.
Then, on Saturday, November 13th, will be the inductee Q&A, where you’ll be able to ask questions to the Class of 2020.
After those events is the Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic on Sunday, which begins at 3pm. Each team is captained by one past inductee. Scott Niedermayer will captain Canada Legends and Mike Modano will captain World Legends.
The good news is, you’ll be able to watch this game live and in-person.
