    GUESTS OF HONOUR


    sittler


    Darryl Sittler, TEAM CANADA COACH

    Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1989, former Center Darryl Sittler is known to be one of the Top 100 NHL players of all time. He began his career as a 1st round draft pick for the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1970, and he notched an impressive 484 goals, 637 assists and 1121 points during 1096 regular season games while his playoff totals include 76 games with 29 goals and 45 assists. His playing career took him from the Leafs to the Philadelphia Flyers and the Detroit Red Wings. Sittler is also known for producing what is the greatest offensive game in the history of the NHL, on February 7, 1976 in a playoff game against the Boston Bruins. That night, he scored 6 goals with 4 assists for an unprecedented 10 point night and became the first Leaf to reach the 100 point mark in scoring in a season. Sittler played from 1970-1985 in the NHL and retired from playing in 1985, when he returned to his roots in Toronto, working for the Leafs in a marketing and management role.


    davetiger


    Dave "Tiger" Williams, TEAM USA COACH

    The Toronto Maple Leafs drafted forward Dave “Tiger” Williams as a 2nd round pick, 31st overall, in 1974. Spanning his 14-year NHL career, Tiger was the league's all-time leader in penalty minutes with 3,966 regular season minutes and an additional 455 minutes during the playoffs. While he was known for his toughness and penalty minutes, his scoring talent was sometimes overlooked. His NHL career took him from the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Vancouver Canucks, Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings and the Hartford Whalers. He played in 962 regular-season games, netted 241 goals and 272 assists for a total of 513 points. He also appeared in 83 playoff contests, scoring 12 goals and 23 assists. Tiger was a huge fan favorite with his many entertaining skirmishes with other notable NHL tough guys. He also brought the fans out of their seats, when, after scoring a goal, he would ride his hockey stick down the length of the ice, much to the annoyance of the opposing players. Tiger retired at the age of 34 and he follows many different business interests, primarily in the Vancouver area. He continues to play in NHL old-timers games and remains close friends with many of his former teammates, most notably Darryl Sittler and Lanny McDonald.
