The Toronto Maple Leafs are a professional ice hockey team based in Toronto, Ontario. They are members of the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL)[1] and are known as one of the Original Six teams of the league.[2] Founded in 1917, the club had no nickname in their first season, and were known as the Toronto Arenas for their second season.[3] From the 1919–20 season they were known as the Toronto St. Patricks,[4] until in February of 1927 when the club was purchased by Conn Smythe.[5] Smythe changed the name of the club to the Maple Leafs and they have been known by that name ever since.[5][6] The 2014–15 season was the 98th for the franchise and since their founding the Leafs have won 2765 regular season games, accumulated 5 division championships, led the league in points 6 times, appeared in the playoffs 65 times, gained 8 O'Brien Cup championships, and won 13 Stanley Cup titles.[7]
