Playing career[edit]

In the early stages of the 2013–14 season, on October 10, 2013, he made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs.[2] 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.[3] 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.[4] The deal came a few hours after the signing of top draft choice Auston Matthews, and is worth an annual average of $612,500.
