The Greater Metro Junior 'A' Hockey League is very proud to confirm that another expansion team has been accepted for the 2013-14 season. The Toronto Predators will join the GMHL and call the historic Maple Leaf Gardens their home arena.

The Gardens is an historic hockey icon having been home to the Toronto Maple Leafs for nearly 70 years. The building has undergone over $20 million in extensive renovations while being named an National Historic Site of Canada. From the Maple Leafs, Summit Series, All-Star games, etc. The momentous events that have taken place at this arena go without saying.

The Predators will be headed by Allan Donnan, current owner of the Toronto Attack.

GMHL President Bob Russell expects the franchise to thrive. "Allan is a classy individual, he runs a very professional organization in the Attack," Russell said, "he is a great owner to take on the Gardens and will represent our league well there."

The Predators are in the process of developing a logo and website. More information will be posted soon.
