The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Thursday that they're moving to Halifax — at least for their training camp.

The NHL team will take its training camp to Nova Scotia for three days in September. They'll be based at the BMO Centre in Bedford.

The Leafs will start their pre-season warm up during the Sept. 18 to 20 visit. 

Practices will start daily at 9:30 a.m. and go until 2 p.m. Fans can buy $5 tickets each morning (no advance tickets) and the money will go to KidSport Nova Scotia.

It's the first time the Leafs will spend part of their training camp outside of Ontario since a 2001 trip to Newfoundland.
