Thank you Mats Sundin

Mats Sundin was the first European to be drafted first overall when Quebec drafted him in 1989.

As far as I can tell Mats Sundin only had two fights. One with Ray Bourque in 1998 and the other against Dave Hannan in 1992 while he was still a Nordique. That is the only fight video available.

Who can forget the late game heroics like these playoff goals against Philadelphia in the Conference Quaterfinals and against Carolina in the 2002 Conference Final. He didn't show emotion like a Gilmour or Clark but he wanted to win just as bad.

Late in his career Sundin had one of his best nights. On April 11, 2006 with Leafs desperately fighting for their playoff lives backed by goalie Jean-Sebastien Aubin, Sudin had 4 goals and 2 assists for 6 points.

Sundin holds the Leafs goals and points record which he set on this scoring play.
