MAPLE LEAFS HONOUR FOUR MORE FRANCHISE GREATS

Legends Row outside the Air Canada Centre will have four new team members later this year.

At a pre-game ceremony prior to Saturday night’s game with the Ottawa Senators, the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that monuments will be created in the likenesses of Wendel Clark, Frank Mahovlich, Red Kelly and Charlie Conacher. 

It’s part of a program to honour some of the team’s greatest players as part of its centennial year celebrations.

They’ll join Legends Row statues of Ted Kennedy, Darryl Sittler, Johnny Bower, Borje Salming, George Armstrong, Syl Apps, Mats Sundin, Dave Keon, Turk Broda and Tim Horton. 

Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan says these are the final four choices to represent the team’s first hundred years, but he adds, “you never know.”

The statues will be unveiled in the fall.
