This summer’s Maple Leafs Annual, now published by Lindy’s Sports under the title “In the Rink: 2012-13 Maple Leafs,” is available for online order today ($9.99 plus shipping) and will hit newsstands across the GTA on August 28. Chapters/Indigo and Shoppers Drug Mart should have it across the country.
