Biographical Info

Having won three World Championships with Sweden before hitting the NHL, Mats Sundin could be one of the best athletes to ever emerge from Scandinavia. He was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques first overall in 1989, the first European ever to do so. He was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1994, where he played the majority of his career, serving 11 seasons as team captain. On October 14, 2006, Sundin became the first Swedish player to score 500 goals. He is the Leafs’ franchise all-time leader in goals (420) and points (984). He is currently tied with Jaromír Jágr, Sergei Fedorov, and Patrik Eliáš for the NHL record for regular-season overtime goals (15). Sundin last played for the Vancouver Canucks in the 2008–09 seasons before announcing his retirement on September 30, 2009. Sundin was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012.
