The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that a limited number of playoff tickets for the first two home playoff games at Air Canada Centre will be available starting Thursday at 10 am.

Tickets will only be available to members of the Leafs Last Minute Club. The deadline to sign up for a LLMC membership is 10 am tomorrow.

Specific pricing of the tickets has not been released; however, published reports say they could be as much as 75 per cent above regular season prices.

Leafs senior vice-president and GM David Nonis sent the following message to all members of Leafs Nation on Tuesday:

“On behalf of the entire Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club, I would like to extend a sincere thank you for your continued loyalty and support.  

Leafs fans are the most passionate and dedicated in all of hockey. Your presence at Air Canada Centre and in our opponent’s rinks does not go unnoticed. You are valued members of our team.  

The Stanley Cup Playoffs are the most exciting time of year, a time when fortunes turn quickly, when heroes emerge, when the narrowest margin of error can make the difference between advancing or going home.  

Randy Carlyle and his staff have done an outstanding job in preparing this young group of players for future success. Bigger challenges and larger opportunities await our team.  

I look forward to joining you in cheering on our Leafs during the playoff journey.  

Go Leafs Go! “
