Well, now that the fires in Vancouver have been extinguished, it’s time for the NHL’s annual off-season to kick off. This means you’ll be able to find many North American hockey players on the golf course relaxing with a few beverages, European players returning to their home country to be with family and to train, and all sorts of activities in between. I mean lots of activities. Luckily, we here at DKM were fortunate enough to get the scoop on what some players were looking forward to most in this coming off-season. Follow the jump to see what these guys are getting up to.

Despite their inability to make the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season, the Toronto Maple Leafs are estatic about their contributions to this season’s fantasy hockey. While their performance might not have been good enough as a team to earn a trip to the post-season, there were a handful of Leafs players that helped fantasy managers throughout the year. Surprising statistical seasons from the likes of Clarke MacArthur, Mikhail Grabovski, Nikolai Kulemin and James Reimer meant that there were a number of players that remained relevant to fantasy-goers throughout the season; something that Toronto fans everywhere should take solace in. General Manager Brian Burke issued a statement to Leafs Nation thanking the fans for supporting the team through what he described was another successful fantasy season:
“On behalf of our players and management, I would just like to thank the fans for helping to guide us through another outstanding season in the world of make-believe, statistic-driven hockey. As an organization we feel we did everything we could to assist all of the fantasy managers out there. From Grabvoski’s tremendous all-around performance in every fantasy category, to Reimer’s back-stopping of several eventual league champions, it was truly an amazing season for our team. Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you next year as the Toronto Maple Leafs embark on what should be yet another memorable and exciting fantasy hockey season.”
