Mats Sundin was the face of the Toronto Maple Leafs during a transitional era for the franchise. The captain's presence at the farewell of historic Maple Leaf Gardens and the christening of the new Air Canada Centre rank high among many of the lasting impressions he made during his time spent in Toronto from 1995 to 2008.

The centreman surpassed numerous Leafs legends to establish new marks throughout the team record book. The model of consistency became the franchise's all-time leader in goals and points in the same game on October 11, 2007. He holds the club records for most 20-goal seasons (13) and 30-goal seasons (10). Sundin also scored 20 or more goals for 17 consecutive NHL seasons when combined with his four seasons in Quebec. Overall, the prolific on-ice leader and off-ice ambassador played in 981 career games for the Blue and White, registering 420 goals, 567 assists and 987 points.

Sundin was selected to the club's 'Top Twenty-Five Players List' during the team's 75th Anniversary Season in 2001-02. He captained the team for 11 seasons (1997-2008) and was named an NHL Second-Team All-Star in 2001-02 and 2003-04. Sundin was at the forefront of the Leafs attack throughout numerous playoff runs. He led eight Leafs teams to the playoffs in 13 seasons with five teams advancing to the second round and two earning third round berths.

The Bromma, Sweden native was a three-time Olympian (1998, 2002, 2006) and captained his team to the gold medal in the 2006 Winter Games. Sundin was often at his best playing against the game's top players in international tournaments. A Canada Cup All-Star in 1991 and World Cup All-Star in 1996, he played in two World Cups, and seven World Championships.

Sundin was a Hockey Hall of Fame inductee in November of 2012 and his Honoured Number banner was raised by the Leafs to the rafters of Air Canada Centre on February 11, 2012.
