The Maple Leafs couldnít land the NHLís Winter Classic outdoor game for thousands of fans and millions of TV viewers, but an intimate outdoor practice for a few hundred school kids was just as meaningful yesterday.
The Leafs crowded on to the refurbished Ramsden Park rink, which MLSEL fixed up in conjunction with RONA hardware stores and the City of Toronto, the 10th such project in the past few years.
About 200 students from Jesse Ketchum Public School and Brown Jr. Public attended, along with Mayor David Miller and Leaf alumni.
Temperatures hovered above freezing, but some Leafs wore hats and hoods under and over their helmets.
