Dave Andreychuk – Toronto Maple Leafs Left-Winger 1993-1996
The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Dave Andreychuk from the Buffalo Sabres on February 2, 1993 with Daren Puppa and a 1st round draft pick (Kenny Jonsson) for Grant Fuhr and a 5th round draft pick (Kevin Popp).
He would play parts of four seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but only two full seasons with the team. Andreychuk played in 23 NHL seasons, but the best seasons of his career were 1992-93 and 1993-94.
Dave Andreycuk started the 1992-93 season with the Sabres, but played the last 31 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs recording career highs with 54 goals and 99 points. He would match his career high in points and come one goal shy of his career high in goals in 1993-94 with 53 goals and 99 points.
His 1993-94 totals are the second most single season goals and fifth most single season points scored in Toronto Maple Leafs history. It was the highest single season goal total for the Leafs during the 1990’s.
In both 1993 and 1994 he was one position shy of a selection onto the NHL 2nd All-Star Team as a left-winger. He was behind Luc Robitaille and Kevin Stevens in 1993, and Brendan Shanahan and Adam Graves in 1994.
Later in his career, Andreychuk would win a Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning and was eventually inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
