The 2009–10 Toronto Maple Leafs season is the franchise's 92nd, and their 82nd as the Maple Leafs. The Leafs have not qualified for the postseason since the 2003–04 season. The team began the regular season with its worst start in franchise history by recording no wins in the first eight games.

Team business Edit

The team moved to a new practice facility, the MasterCard Centre from their former practice facility the Lakeshore Lions Arena. Built next door to the old arena, the new facility has four ice sheets, allowing the Maple Leafs and their farm team the Toronto Marlies to practice simultaneously on separate sheets.

Off-season Edit

At the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, the Maple Leafs chose centre Nazem Kadri with their first-round pick, seventh overall.

In free agency, the Maple Leafs signed two defencemen of note, Mike Komisarek of the Montreal Canadiens and Francois Beauchemin of the Anaheim Ducks, signing both to multiple-year deals. At the same time, defenceman Pavel Kubina was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers for fellow defenceman Garnet Exelby. The Leafs also signed free agents Colton Orr and Tim Brent.

After extensive talks, the Leafs were able to sign highly-regarded Swedish free-agent goaltender Jonas Gustavsson, who was considering offers from several NHL teams.

The Leafs dealt for Boston Bruins's talented forward, Phil Kessel, trading two first-round draft picks and a second-round draft pick. Kessel started the season on the injured list as he was recovering from an off season shoulder surgery.

Regular season Edit

The Leafs got off to a slow start to the NHL season, with a record of 0 - 7 - 1, the worst start for the Leafs since the NHL formed in 1917. Also, the Leafs surrendered the first goal to their opposition in each of their first 11 games, and 17 of their first 19 games.
