Welcome to The Faceoff Circle, a hockey blog written by Jeff Veillette. The Faceoff Circle covers some of the most interesting news, analysis, speculation, and trends in the hockey world. Based out of Toronto with a majority-local audience, The Faceoff Circle primarily covers the Toronto Maple Leafs organizational umbrella, but often branches out across the hockey world.

All articles on The Faceoff Circle are free to read, but the site is primarily maintained through a pay-what-you-want reader membership. Signing up creates an ad-free experience, allows one to comment on posts, and unlocks other features and bonus content. If you’d like to support the site, you can sign up for an account in just seconds!
