Mats Sundin Is the Swedish-Born Player With the Most Career NHL Goals

Mats Sundin retired from the NHL in 2009, but he still has the most career NHL goals out of any Swedish-born player with 564.

Sundin was initially drafted first overall in the 1989 NHL entry draft and played his first four seasons in the NHL with the Quebec Nordiques.

The Swede played most of his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and excluding his rookie season, the shortened lockout season and his half-season with the Vancouver Canucks, Sundin scored at least 70 points in every season of his career and led the Leafs in points in every year he was with the team except 2002–03.

In 2006, Sundin became the first Swedish player to score 500 goals. He is the Leafs’ franchise all-time leader in goals with 420 and points with 984.
