Retired numbers

* 5 Bill Barilko, D, 1947-51
* 6 Ace Bailey, LW, 1926-33
* 99 Wayne Gretzky (number retired league-wide by NHL; banner raised at Air Canada Centre February 6, 2000, at NHL All Star Game)

The Leafs have a policy of retiring numbers only for players "who have made a significant contribution to the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club and have experienced a career-ending incident while a member of the Maple Leaf team". Barilko (whose career ended with death in a plane crash)cite web

] and Bailey (whose career ended with a severe head injury)cite web

title=Alumni Bios: Ace Bailey
publisher=Toronto Maple Leafs
] met the criteria. These two numbers were not officially retired until October 17, 1992. Ron Ellis received permission from Bailey, by the time of his career the Leafs' Director of Scouting, to wear number 6.

Unfortunately, the concept of failing to retire numbers beyond those of Barilko and Bailey, reprsents a lingering effect of the Ballard era. MLS&E has never explained why they remain the NHL's only team to withhold the ultimate honour from their greatest players. As players such as Johnny Bower and George Armstrong, in their 80's wait, the Leafs remain steadfast in their refusal to adopt the practice endorsed by the other 29 NHL franchises.

Honoured numbers

In 1993, the Leafs began a policy of honouring their greatest players by declaring their number an "Honoured Number" rather than retirement. MLSE CEO Richard Peddie formed a committee in 2005 to study the issue and announced the decision to continue with the honoured number program late that year, citing a desire to allow current players to build upon the legacy of those numbers.
