Whether he was wearing a Quebec Nordiques uniform in the early part of his career or the familiar blue and white of the Toronto Maple Leafs during the majority of his career, hockey fans could always count on Sundin for pushing it to the max every time he stepped out on the ice.
Sundin finished his career with 1,349 points in 1,346 games. He was a big-time producer with a powerful shot, scoring 564 goals in his career.
The Swede also helped break the stereotype of the soft European player. He would go into the corner and take abuse to make a play. However, he also stood up for himself, as he had 1,093 career penalty minutes.
