Maple Leafs' Legacy in the Balance

The Toronto Maple Leafs boast a storied past, filled with legendary NHL players who have worn the iconic Leaf. However, records are set to be surpassed.

Nylander's Meteoric Rise



Currently at the helm of this talented roster, William Nylander, even without a secured contract for the next season, is set to challenge long-standing franchise records.


Since joining the Maple Leafs, the 27-year-old has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Now, he's inching closer to surpassing a major milestone held by the great Mats Sundin.

Chasing Overtime Glory



In a recent clash against Tampa Bay, Nylander was on the brink of netting another overtime goal. He stands at nine career OT goals, which is just five shy of Sundin's franchise record.

Remarkably, teammate Auston Matthews is also at nine career OT winners. With both players in peak form as the 2023-24 season unfolds, Sundin's record seems primed to be eclipsed soon, further cementing their places in Maple Leafs' history.
