Learn More About Mats Sundin:
Swedish sensation Mats Sundin joined the National Hockey League in 1989 where he was drafted first overall by the Quebec Nordiques becoming the first European-born player to be drafted first overall. Sundin made his NHL debut with the Nordiques in the 1990-91 season becoming a leading goal scorer, finishing second on the team with 59 points. Sundin continued to improve, establishing himself as a point-per-game player throughout his career.
Mats Sundin was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs during the 1994 off season. Sundin made an immediate impact with the Leafs, becoming a leading goal scorer for the team. With the departure of Captain Doug Gilmour, Sundin became the 16th captain of the Maple Leafs and the first European captain in team history. Sundin achieved many milestones during his time in Toronto: He became the 35th player in NHL history to reach the 500 goal mark; he scored his 917th point as a Maple Leaf, breaking Darryl Sittler’s franchise all-time record and he also scored his 390th goal in the same game to take the all-time goal scoring lead, later becoming the first player to score 400 goals as a Toronto Maple Leaf.
After 13 years in Toronto, Mats was traded to the Vancouver Canucks where he played for 2 seasons before announcing his retirement. His number “13” was raised to the rafters in Toronto just 2 years later and he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on November 12, 2012.
