Mats Sundin’s Canucks Legacy

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.

Howard Berger: Sundin "Fluke" Still My Best Career Moment

TORONTO (Feb. 10) – There is no debating that the most fortunate aspect of my years covering the Toronto Maple Leafs was being in the professional company of Mats Sundin.
