The Toronto Maple Leafs braved the below-zero temperatures to hold their annual outdoor practice at Dieppe Park in East York on Monday. 

Ahead of the practice, about 40 students from local schools participated in a hockey clinic with Leafs alumnus Darcy Tucker. Fellow alumni Shayne Corson and Curtis Joseph also held an autograph session.

Leafs head coach Mike Babcock attended the practice, along with Mayor John Tory and a few city councillors.
