Joshua Leivo (born May 26, 1993) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing with the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL). Leivo was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the third round (86th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Leivo played three seasons (2010–2013) of major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), scoring 74 goals and 102 assists for 176 points, while earning 150 penalty minutes, in 193 games played.
In the early stages of the 2013–14 season, on October 10, 2013, he made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He later scored his first NHL goal, against Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes on October 17, 2013.
Leivo was named to the 2016 AHL All-Star Classic on January 7, 2016, after a stellar first half to the 2015–16 season. Following another stellar season in the AHL, along with decent production in his few NHL appearances, Leivo was rewarded with a two-year contract by the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 21, 2016. The deal came a few hours after the signing of top draft choice Auston Matthews, and is worth an annual average of $612,500.
