    I am a Leafs fan and watched this unfurl in real time. At that point I was totally rooting for David Ayres. Is it embarrassing for the Leafs, yes. And they deserve it tbh 😂😂

    I’m a Leafs fan and even though my team played brutal when he got in, I couldn’t be more happy that we at least lost to this amazing human being who has always dreamed of getting this chance. Stopped 8 shots, even landed a shot on net against the Leafs. So happy for you David.

    Great interview. Please everyone consider organ donation. Sign your organ donor card or whatever you need to do. Currently, there are over 93,000 people on the kidney transplant waiting list in the US and over 3000 in Canada. The wait for a deceased donor could be 5 years, and in some states, it is closer to 10 years.

    This is a Cinderella tale for guys… Such a wonderful and unbelievable story. This guy hasn't played high level organized hockey IN 20 YEARS (and that was only Junior B if I'm not mistaken) . I can honestly say, on behalf all of us old guys who play beer league and love the game, we couldn't be happier for another person and are living vicariously through him.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.. Hockey players are the best, and David is the best of the best. So proud…

    Couldn't be happier for him, his family, the fans… And me

    doing what you love doing its a privilege. most NHL hockey players have forgotten that.
    This guys reaction to just play a single game as a professional is worth more than the entire roaster of the Maple Leafs.

    As a backup emergency goalie…he made $500 CDN…and got to keep his Jersey. The NHL has probably made more $ on him than the $800,000 entry level contract…
