Mats Sundin was drafted first overall in the 1989 NHL draft by the Quebec
Avalanche Nordiques. He would begin his NHL career with Quebec in the 1990-91 season, when he scored 59 points as a rookie. Sundin would play three more seasons with the Nordiques before being traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs. He would spend the majority of his NHL career in Toronto, playing with the Leafs between the 1994-95 and 2007-08 seasons.
As a large (6' 5", 230 lb.) center, Sundin was able to remain durable on the ice, playing in at least 70 games per season for all but two of his 18 NHL seasons. He did this while remaining no stranger to the penalty box, racking up a career 1,093 penalty minutes.
Sundin was also no stranger to the back of the hockey net, as he put 564 pucks in goal during his 18 NHL seasons. Pair this with his 785 assists, and you have his tremendous total of 1,349 career points.
Sundin's strongest season offensively came in 1992-93, when he had 114 points (47 goals and 67 assists).
