Maple Leafs to raise Sundin's jersey to rafters

NHL.com @NHL

TORONTO (AP) - Mats Sundin is set to take his place with other Toronto Maple Leafs greats at the top of Air Canada Centre.

The team's career scoring leader will be honored before a Feb. 11 game against Montreal, when the Maple Leafs raise his No. 13 to the rafters. Sundin will be the 18th player to have a banner raised in his honor by the Leafs.

Only Bill Barilko's No. 5 and Ace Bailey's No. 6 are officially retired. The rest of the numbers can still be worn by current players - although no one has donned No. 13 since Sundin.

The Swede played for the Maple Leafs from 1994-08, amassing 987 points, including 420 goals, in 981 games.

Sundin attended Toronto's game against Pittsburgh on Saturday night. It was his first time back in the arena since retiring in 2009.
