The club’s roster will be divided into two teams for the game with the Team Blue and Team White rosters announced on Thursday, September 30.

To celebrate and thank our community heroes, fans attending this marquee game will consist of frontline and essential workers who worked during the most difficult time of the pandemic to ensure the city and the most vulnerable were supported, including healthcare workers, food bank employees, teachers, shelter workers and community agencies. This show of support is part of the Maple Leafs’ and MLSE Foundation’s continued commitment to give back to the community following this challenging year and to ‘Change the Game’. Launched in February 2021, the Change the Game campaign aims to raise and commit to investing $30 million over four years to help eliminate barriers for youth in sport, giving them more equitable opportunities to recognize and reach their potential. In partnership with Canadian Tire Corporation, the organization has also donated tickets to community groups to support the event.

Fans at home can demonstrate their support for the community through the purchase of a 50/50 ticket with proceeds benefiting the Change the Game campaign. Returning this season, tickets for the Maple Leafs 50/50 Draw are available for purchased for this game and future games online at 5050.mapleleafs.com or within the Toronto Maple Leafs App.

Maple Leafs fan-favourite talent will be featured in the game’s broadcast including Joe Bowen as the play-by-play announcer; two-time gold medalist and professional player Cheryl Pounder with colour commentary; former NWHL All-Star and LGBTQ2S+ advocate Harrison Browne and former Ryerson Rams hockey captain Kryshanda Green as analysts; MLSE host Sean Bowen as a broadcast host as well as Maple Leaf in-arena host Danielle Emanuele conducting player interviews.
