This jersey belongs to Alex Karayannides of Toronto, Ontario.
“#13 Mats Sundin Toronto Maple Leafs Western Conference Home Jersey. Mats Sundin the greatest Maple Leaf in recent history played 13 seasons with the Leafs, 11 of which he was team captain. At 6 foot 5 Sundin was one of the hardest players to knock off the puck when he would work the puck below the goal line. Sundin was everything you wanted in a top line centre. Size, strength, speed, and a great shot made Sundin the Leafs’ greatest weapon. It seems fitting that this is exactly what the Leafs are missing in the post Sundin era. Sundin is the all time goals and points leader of the Leafs franchise with 402 goals and 984 points while wearing the blue and white.
Sundin played for the Quebec Nordiques for four seasons and the Vancouver Canucks for one year as his last season. In 1346 regular season games Sundin had 564 goals and 1349 points in 18 NHL seasons.
The Leafs will be honouring Sundin’s #13 this season on February 11th at home against the Montreal Canadiens and is eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame next year. Sundin is tied for the record of regular season overtime goals with Sergei Fedorov, Jaromir Jagr, and Patrick Elias at 15 overtime winners and is 27th in all time scoring.”
