Oct 25--Wendel Clark

Wendel Clark

Selected by Toronto Maple Leafs round 1 #1 overall 1985 NHL Entry Draft.

He helped Canada’s national team take the gold medal at the 1985 World Junior Hockey Championships.
If there was a list of the most popular Toronto Maple Leaf players of all-time, one could be certain that the name Wendel Clark would be right near the top. The former Maple Leafs' captain was idolized by thousands of hockey fans, and held a status, which was nothing short of legendary during more than a decade of service with the blue and white.
Clark is now employed by the Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Club as a community ambassador and public relations. He can be seen at virtually all Leaf home games, usually with his wife Denise and children. The Toronto Maple Leafs honoured the former captain by raising his legendary number 17 to the rafters on November 22, 2008, at the Air Canada Centre. He owns two restaurants, Wendel Clark's Classic Grill and Sports Lounge, in both Oakville, Ontario and Vaughan, Ontario, and resides in King City
