Two new additions to the statues in Legends Row outside the Air Canada Center showed up on this past weekend. Mats Sundin and Borje Salming have taken their place alongside Darryl Sittler, Ted Kennedy and Johnny Bower. Salming is cheering from behind the boards while Sundin is on the ice. I’d say that was Sundin was ready for action but he needs to get his stick on the ice first. Maybe the game is over and the Maple Leafs have something to celebrate?
below: Mats Sundin, born in Sweden in 1971. He joined the Maple Leafs in 1994 and played 13 seasons for them. He was captain for 11 of those years and with the exception of 2002-03, he led the team in scoring points every year. He was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012.

The first three statues, Darryl Sittler, Ted Kennedy and Johnny Bower, were installed earlier this year.
