Former NHL player Wendel Clark was drafted First Overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1985 NHL entry draft after spending his junior career with his home province’s WHL team, the Saskatoon Blades. Clark represented Canada in the 1985 World Juniors, winning Gold! In his rookie season with the Maple Leafs, Wendel made an immediate impact in the league and with the ‘Leafs Nation’. He scored 34 goals for 45 points and took on all comers, racking up 227 penalty minutes. His physical style of play and offensive talent built the foundation for a great career, and later led to Clark becoming captain of the storied Maple Leafs. He led by example and was the one working the hardest, scoring the big goals and doing whatever was needed to win. He got the job done. His particular style of play, however, took its toll. At the young age of 33, Wendel was forced into retirement due to back injuries. He played 793 career NHL games, recording 564 points and 1690 penalty minutes playing for Toronto, Quebec, New York, Tampa Bay, Detroit and Chicago. He currently resides with his family in Toronto. He keeps busy as an ambassador for the Maple Leafs, plus working with various charitable organizations. He owns a chain of restaurants and the Meineke Car Care Centres.
