Mats Sundin's familiar No. 13 has been raised to the rafters at the Air Canada Centre by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Mats Sundin’s #13 banner was raised to the rafters of the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Saturday night, and it made me think back to his time in Vancouver. Sundin, as you might remember, spent half a season in blue and green during the 2008-09 season. The Mats Sundin that Canucks fans got to see, at age 38, wasn’t of hall of fame caliber but he wasn’t a bust either.
Mats Sundin returned home this week to have his number raised to the rafters at the Air Canada Centre. In my eyes, this honour is 100% deserved. Like him or not for the No-Trade Debacle, he’s one of the greatest players in franchise history. So without further ado, here are my Top 10 Mats Sundin moments.
