Wendel Clark

Former Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs

Wendel Clark was one of the most beloved players to ever wear the Toronto Maple Leafs jersey. The former team captain, his rambunctious playing style, and exceptional talent on the ice endeared him to fans. Now an ambassador for the team and a spokesperson for a number of corporations, Clark’s star power continues to shine.

Clark retired from the NHL in 2000. His last season brought his career full circle from its beginnings in 1985 with the Leafs. During his triumphant career, Clark recorded 330 goals, 234 assists, 564 points, and 1,690 penalty minutes. He was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team and was second in voting for the Calder Trophy. He was also selected to the NHL All-Star Game in 1986 and 1999. Clark had his jersey number “17” retired by the Maple Leafs and, in 2017, was honoured once again with his statue unveiled on Legends Row outside of the Scotiabank Arena.

Clark is an active entrepreneur with five Wendel Clark Classic Grill restaurants in Ontario and Saskatchewan. He lends his name to various charity endeavours across Canada, including his own Wendel Clark Charity Golf Classic, now in its 20th year, and the Wendel Clark Muskoka Ice Cup, which will have its first game in 2022.

Teambuilding: Lessons from the NHL Greats

During his triumphant 15-year NHL career, Wendel Clark played with the best and the brightest NHL stars. Today, as a keynote speaker, he shares lessons learned in teambuilding straight from the ice.

Clark brings audiences on a journey through his NHL career, beginning as an 18-year-old from a small town in Saskatchewan to playing alongside the greats such as Doug Gilmour, Mats Sundin, Nick Lidstrom, and many more. He reveals how they shaped him into a better player and leader, and how he still applies those lessons today as an ambassador for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
