This is a list of seasons completed by the Toronto Hockey Club of the National Hockey Association. For the list of seasons completed by the Toronto Maple Leafs franchise of the National Hockey League see List of Toronto Maple Leafs seasons. The Toronto Hockey Club, which was also known as the Blue Shirts, competed in the NHA from the 1912-1913 season to midway through the 1916-17 season when the team suspended operations. In the following offseason, the NHA suspended operations, never to return. Four NHA clubs formed the National Hockey League and granted a temporary franchise to an unnamed Toronto 'hockey club' as a replacement for the NHA team in Toronto. However, the roster was composed mostly of former Blue Shirts, leading the press to call this team "the Torontos" or "the Blue Shirts." This temporary franchise would evolve into today's Toronto Maple Leafs.
