Former Maple Leafs forward among this year's six inductees @NHL

Former Toronto Maple Leafs forward and Hockey Hall of Fame member Darryl Sittler is among the six inductees who will be honored in October with stars on Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto.

The Walk of Fame and Corus Entertainment announced the 2016 inductees on Tuesday. They include actor and director Jason Priestley, filmmaker Deepa Mehta, musician Corey Hart and fashion journalist Jeanne Beker, as well as actor Al Waxman, who died in 2001. 

Sittler spent the first 11½ of his 15 NHL seasons with the Maple Leafs. He finished his career with 484 goals and 1,121 points and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1989. Sittler set an NHL single-game record that still stands by getting 10 points (six goals, four assists) in a game against the Boston Bruins on Feb. 7, 1976. He was added to the Maple Leafs' Legends Row in 2014.

Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr, Mario Lemieux and Jean Beliveau are among NHL stars who've been honored previously by the Walk of Fame.

The 2016 inductees will be honored Oct. 6 at the Allstream Centre in Toronto.
