Sittler played for the Leafs, the Philadelphia Flyers and the Detriot Red Wings during his 15 years (1970 to 1985) in the NHL. He played his best games with the Leafs over 12 seasons before being traded to the Flyers in 1982. Sittler retired in 1985 and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1989. He played 1096 games netting 484 goals and 637 assists and 1121 career points in his NHL career.
