Tuesday was an extremely busy day in Toronto Maple Leafs Land. Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports reported the Leafs have hired Darryl Metcalf, Cam Charron and Rob Pettapiece to head up a brand new analytics department, a move that has yet to be confirmed by the team. In other news, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night In Canada is reporting Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Tim Leiweke will be leaving the team soon, but Leiweke denied it. CBC Sports has a roundup of the recent happenings.

The one hire the Leafs have actually confirmed is bringing in Brandon Pridham as assistant general manager. Josh Rubin of the Toronto Star has more on that story along with the potential hire of Metcalf.

Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun wrote about the recent wave of NHL analytics hires and how that’s affecting hockey’s old guard.

James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail spoke to league sources about Pridham, the man who’s lauded for knowing the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement inside and out. After all, he helped create it.

PPP of Pension Plan Puppets added his two cents on the move. He can’t be any worse than Claude Loiselle, right?

Ryan Fancey of The LeafsNation wonders if the hiring of his former editor means the end of Tyler Bozak in a Toronto Maple Leafs uniform.
