Yes, if you live in the U.S., you can watch the Maple Leafs on ESPN+, although some games will be blacked out when ESPN, TNT, and NHL Network have rights to exclusive games.

The old NHL.TV was folded into ESPN+ which created a streaming only out-of-market package for NHL fans who don’t live close to their favorite team. ESPN+ features 1,000 out-of-market NHL games each season as well as 75 exclusive, ESPN produced, games.

Most Leaf games will be available on ESPN+ in the U.S. unless the Leafs are playing in an exclusive broadcast on ESPN, TNT, and NHL Network.
