The Leafs have 14 back-to-back games and play 24 (nearly 30%) of their 82 games on Saturday night and will wrap up season on Saturday, April 4, 2019 against the Montreal Canadiens.
The breakdown of games home and away per month are October - 14 (9H/5R), November - 14 (5H/9R), December - 13 (5H/8R), January - 10 (6H/4R), February - 15 (8H/7R), March - 14 (6H/8R), April 2 - (2H/0R).
The Maple Leafs had until 5pm on Tuesday to extend qualifying offers to their restricted free agents or they would become unrestricted on July 1, and they did so with wingers Mitch Marner, Kasperi Kapanen, Andreas Johnsson and Michael Carcone.
Toronto did not extend qualifying offers to forwards Gabriel Gagne and Nicholas Baptiste, defensemen Jordan Subban and Igor Ozhiganov (who returned to the KHL last month) and goaltender Eamon McAdam (acquired in exchange for Matt Martin last summer).
