The Toronto Maple Leafs were founded in 1917, and were one of The Original Six clubs. The club has won thirteen Stanley Cup championships, second only to the 24 championships of the Montreal Canadiens. The Maple Leafs history includes two recognized dynasties, from 1947 to 1951; and from 1962 to 1967. Winning their last championship in 1967, the Maple Leafs’ 52-season drought between championships is the longest current drought in the NHL.
