Darryl Sittler - 1984 O-Pee-Chee

Darryl Glen Sittler (September 18, 1950-) continues to hold the record for the most points in a single game (10), when he lit up the powerful Boston Bruins with six goals and four assists in 1976. During that playoff season (1976), Darryl tallied five goals in a single playoff game (a record he shares with four others) against the Philadelphia Flyers. Sittler came up in the Toronto Maple Leafs system with the London Knights of the Ontario Junior Hockey League and was taken by Toronto eighth overall in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. After two decent seasons with the Maple Leafs, Darryl had a breakout year nearly doubling his goal total (29) from the previous campaign and more than tripling his assist (48) output. The Leafs center was now a star in the NHL and his totals continued to rise. In the 1974-75 season, after losing Dave Keon to the WHA, Sittler became the second-youngest captain in the organization’s history, a role he would hold until 1982. In 1979, Darryl ripped the captain “C” off his jersey in protest of the trading of Lanny McDonald to the Colorado Rockies. He battled with the coaching staff and the front office in Toronto for a number of years, eventually demanding a trade in 1982. Darryl played 15 years in the NHL with the Maple Leafs (1970-1982, the Philadelphia Flyers (1982-1984) and the Detroit Red Wings (1984-85). Sittler scored 29 or more goals and 38 or more assists in ten consecutive seasons with Toronto. He enjoyed continued success with the Flyers as well, scoring43 goals and 40 assists in his first full season wearing the orange and black. After one season in Detroit in 1984-85, Sittler hung up his skates for good. He was named to the 1977-78 NHL All-Star Second Team and played in four NHL All-Star Games. Darryl Sittler scored 484 regular season goals and 637 assists in 1,096 games. Darryl Sittler was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1989. Sittler joined the Leafs front office in 1991.
