Darryl Sittler is one of the greatest players to ever wear the Toronto Maple Leaf uniform. An inductee into the Hockey Hall of Fame, and voted by fans as the centreman on the All-Time Leafs Team, Sittler has an incredible wealth of stories to share from the course of his outstanding career, as well as the lessons he’s learned working in charitable endeavors.
Sittler may well be best remembered for two of the most remarkable performances in the history of the National Hockey League. On February 7, 1976, he scored six goals and added four assists for an NHL record total of 10 points in a game. That spring, he joined Maurice Richard in hockey history by recording five goals in one playoff game. He also scored one of the most famous goals in hockey history, the overtime goal against Czechoslovakia to win the 1976 Canada Cup. On February 8, 2003, Toronto retired Sittler’s number 27.
In 2014, The Toronto Maple Leafs honoured Sittler with a bronze statue of himself on Legends Row, outside of the ACC in Toronto.
