#53. John Pohl

Pohl’s 2006-07 season of 13 goals and 29 points crushes Mike Kostka and Sam Carrick’s statstics, who are the two other players to ever wear this number in Toronto.

#54. Frederik Gauthier

13 NHL goals in 168 career games wouldn’t typically be enough secure best Leaf, but Gauthier is only going up against Kris Newbury who had four goals in 76 career games.

#55. Larry Murphy

Murphy only played 151 of his 1615 career games in Toronto. However, Murphy had a remarkable career being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004.

#56. Byron Froese

With five goals in 111 career NHL games, Froese is a career AHLer.

#57. Andrew MacWilliam

The former seventh round pick is the only player in Leafs history to wear this number. In 12 career games, he had 0 goals and two assists.

#59. Keith Aulie

There was a ton of promise for the 6’5, 230 pound defenseman when he arrived in Toronto. Unfortunately that never panned and Aullie has spent most of his career playing in the AHL or overseas.

#61. Nic Petan

Petan is another player who only cracks the list because he’s the only player to wear this number. Leafs management is hoping Petan can crack the roster one of these days.

#62. Denis Malgin

Malgin has 0 goals scored as Leaf but gets the nod by default, because he falls in the same category as Petan.

#63. Tyler Ennis

With over 600 games played, the 5’9 Ennis proved a lot of doubters wrong. Ennis only played one season in Toronto but has three 20-goal campaigns.

#65. Ilya Mikheyev

Mikheyev has less career games played than his number, but nobody has ever worn 65 besides him. In 39 games played, fans loved watching ‘soup’ before he got injured.

#67. Robert Svehla

Fans may not remember Svehla, but he played nine career NHL seasons. Svehla barely missed a game and his best season came in 1995-96 with eight goals and 57 points.

#71. Mike Foligno

Leaf fans are trying to forget this number, as it was the one that David Clarkson wore in his short time in Toronto. Foligno on the other hand was a prolific goal scorer with four seasons of 30 or more goals.

#72. Mathieu Schneider

Although he was the only player to wear this number, he actually deserves credit. The reliable defenseman played over 1289 games and had 743 points.

#73. Kyle Clifford

Clifford recently joined the Leafs alongside Jack Campbell and has already shown his toughness and grit.

#77. Pavel Kubina

With five career double-digit goal seasons, Kubina was an underrated defenseman in Toronto. At 6’4, 260 pounds, Kubina was also someone you didn’t want to mess with.
