Social media has become the largest marketing tool available for anyone to use, including the NHL, its teams, players, management, public relations officials and others involved in hockey.

Twitter itself has become synonymous with the NHL. It’s a way for players to reach out to the fans and relate to them as they make their way up the ranks or cement their position as the league’s best. It has also become a source for breaking news and rumours spread by fans and media members alike.

Toronto Maple Leafs employees and followers are all over Twitter, giving the team one of the largest social media impacts among the entire league. For a full list of everyone in connection with the Maple Leafs, whether they play or played for the team, manage or managed it or cover it, look no further than the one below.
