Hockey returns tonight, but fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs will soon be able to see a lot more than just the players on the ice.
Today the team announced All Or Nothing: Toronto Maple Leafs today, a new multi-episode docu-series that's going to follow the team through the new 2021 season and be released for viewing on Amazon Prime sometime later this year.
We will give fans around the world unprecedented access to an entire NHL team's season for the first time ever.

The season is shortened, lasting only 56 games instead of the normal 82 games, and the Maple Leafs will be playing their home games without fans in Toronto.
The documentary series will use camera crews, remote cameras, and ambient microphones to pick up a ton of extra Maple Leafs content beyond what happens on the ice.
The format will likely be similar to All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, the popular Amazon Prime docu-series that followed England's Tottenham Hotspurs for a season.
"We feel that All or Nothing will provide our team a way to connect with Maple Leafs fans here in Toronto and around the world like never before," said Toronto Maple Leafs President Brendan Shanahan.
As the name suggests, the Leafs are gunning for the Stanley Cup this year — whether they get it or not, it seems that we'll at least see some good behind-the-scenes content of them trying.
