Heavy snowfall and awful driving conditions in Toronto cause some problems for the Leafs

Unlike many folks in the Toronto area, the Maple Leafs did not have a snow day on Monday, as almost every player was present for practice following heavy snowfall overnight and into today.

On a day where over a foot of snow had forced the closure of the Gardiner Expressway and the 401, the boys were determined to keep grinding, and attending practice even after many of them had to endure heavy snow removal before hand, including Leafs captain, John Tavares. Come on, John.. we all know who really did the work.. Nice job, Jace!

Tavares said it took over an hour to create enough of a clearing to free his truck from the heavy snowfall that the blizzard had brought, but not everyone is lucky enough to have a larger vehicle as his linemate, Alexander Kerfoot, was not as lucky.

Per Sportsnet's Luke Fox, Kerfoot said that he had attempted to make his way to Ford Performance Centre with his car, but after he deemed that the snow would make that impossible, he had decided to give up and call up Uber to give him a lift.

By the sounds of things, the Leafs had the vast majority of players present at the team's training facility, some by carpool and some by other means. I wonder if any of the Leafs were the ones ripping down the street on snowmachines? Unlikely, but fun to think about.

Love the determination from the Buds, who are back in action Wednesday against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Hopefully the extra work pays off.
