I have no specific evidence of immigrants actually playing, but it is telling when CBC airs Hockey Night in Canada every Saturday (and every playoff game they carry) in Punjabi. They wouldn't waste the satellite space and money broadcasting the game in Punjabi, if they didn't have an audience that watched it. Since the majority of the games shown on HNIC are Leafs games (and when there is a split broadcast the Punjabi games are the Leafs games), I would suggest that a good portion of immigrants in Toronto are hockey fans.
