The Toronto Maple Leafs hosted their annual outdoor practice this afternoon at Nathan Phillips Square.

Hundreds of people, including many children were on hand to watch the Leafs take the ice, despite the cold weather.

This was a part of the team’s “Blue and White Week” which is a time where the Leafs give back to their fans through many giveaways and prizes at these events.

Humber News reporter Harjas Badyal went down to the practice to take a look at the festivities.
