Sundin, Mahovlich among Leafs' alumni additions
The Toronto Maple Leafs have added four Hall of Famers to their 2013 Winter Classic alumni roster, the team announced.
Mats Sundin, Joe Nieuwendyk, Frank Mahovlich and Borje Salming will all take part in the Alumni Game, provided there is no NHL lockout.
Sundin, an 11-time captain of the Leafs, leads the franchise in scoring with 987 points (420 goals, 567 assists), and was selected to the Hall of Fame earlier this year. Sundin spent 13 seasons with the Leafs from 1994-2008.
Nieuwendyk, the current Dallas Star general manager, spent just one season with the Leafs, recording 50 points (22 goals, 28 assists) in 64 games. Nieuwendyk is a three-time Stanley Cup champion and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2011.
Mahovlich, a 1981 Hall of Fame inductee, won four Stanley Cups with the Leafs from 1962-67. Mahovlich was also a member of team Canada at the 1972 Summit Series.
Salming played 16 seasons with the Maple Leafs, and he is the franchise leader in points by a defenceman. Salming was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1996.
