Mats Sundin calls it quits

Mats SundinMats Sundin has announced his retirement from hockey.

According a media reports from Sweden the former Maple Leafs captain made the announcement today at a Stockholm hotel.

“It feels good, it comes from the heart,” Sundin told reporters.

“I’ve had a long career and have played since I was a child. It’s hard to summarize everything but it’s been a great journey… I couldn’t have had a better life than the one I’ve had.”

Sundin played 18 NHL seasons, 13 with the Maple Leafs. He is Toronto’s all-time leader in goals and points.

“Toronto is and will always be my second home,” Sundin said.

He played 1,346 games with Toronto, the Quebec Nordiques and Vancouver Canucks, scoring 564 goals and 785 assists for 1349 points.

Personally I think he should have retired last season while he was with the Leafs. It would have been a much better scenario calling it quits with the team he loves, the Maple Leafs. This future hall of famer is one of our best selling figure in our store:
