Darcy Tucker brought his grit and goal scoring prowess from the Lightning on February 9, 2000 in a trade and quickly became a fan favourite. The Leafs would make memorable playoff runs in each of his first five campaigns and with Pat Quinn behind the bench. The team made it to the second round three times and the third round once (2002). Tucker was a key cog in the Leafs eliminating Ottawa in the Battle of Ontario four different times in the NHL playoffs.

Listed at 5 foot 10 inches, the scrappy right-winger took on all comers in the NHL. Eight times he surpassed 100 minutes in penalties in his career. Tucker is 32nd on the franchise's all-time regular season scoring list with 319 points and 40th on the playoff scoring list with 21 points. Tucker is 17th on the team's all-time penalty minutes list with 756.

In parts of eight seasons with Toronto from 2000 to 2008, Tucker reached the 20-goal plateau on four occasions. By combining physical play with a scoring touch, his best season with the Leafs was 2005-06 when he recorded 28 goals, 33 assists, 61 points and 100 PIM's in 74 games.

Born in Castor, Alberta, Tucker was Montreal's eighth choice, 151st overall, in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. Tucker captured Gold for Canada at the 1995 World Junior Championship and he's a three-time Memorial Cup winner with Kamloops of the Western Hockey League. His NHL career from 1996 to 2010 was spent with Montreal, Tampa Bay, Toronto and Colorado.
