Garth Snow

Garth Snow began his NHL goaltending career with the Quebec Nordiques after being drafted in the 6th round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. After two years in Quebec, he also played for the Philadelphia Flyers, Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New York Islanders.

Particularly during his time with the Flyers and Islanders, Snow established himself as a reliable netminder, often stepping up in crucial moments for his teams.

Following his playing days, Snow transitioned into the administrative side of hockey. In 2006, shortly after his retirement as a player, he was named the general manager of the New York Islanders, a position he held for over a decade.

Mats Sundin

Mats Sundin was selected first overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. Sundin’s impressive career includes several accolades, such as being named to the NHL First All-Star Team in 2002. He scored over 500 goals and more than 1,300 points in his NHL career.

In 1994, Sundin was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, where he would become the franchise’s all-time leader in goals and points. Serving as captain for much of his tenure in Toronto, he became one of the most beloved players in Maple Leafs’ history.

Mats Sundin’s combination of size, skill, and leadership made him one of the premier centers of his generation, and his impact on the game, especially in Toronto, continues to be felt long after his retirement.
