Sundin named to Legends Row

Hockey Hall of Fame member and former Leafs captain Mats Sundin was named to Legends Row on Thursday night. The Legends Row tribute outside Air Canada Centre is comprised of statues of the greatest players in franchise history.

Sundin, along with countryman Borje Salming, are the first two players inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The statues with the likenesses of both players will be unveiled on Saturday as part of the ongoing Leafs Nation Fan-Fest activities.

The other Legends Row members are: Ted Kennedy, Johnny Bower, Darryl Sittler, Syl Apps and George Armstrong.

“Mats was a player that embodied tremendous talent, great desire and consistent performance year in and year out. He represented this city, and this franchise, with great pride and class. We will be thrilled to see his statue unveiled on Saturday,” Leafs president Brendan Shanahan said.
