Toronto Ambassadors to European Fans

Well.. the Toronto Maple Leafs are the ambassadors for NHL brand of hockey this month. They are currently playing exhibition games in Sweden. Yesterday, they defeated the Jokerit team 5-3. Newly acquired defenceman Richard Jackman (no, not the guy that played Wolverine... that's Hugh) scored twice for the Leafs. The lowlight for the Leafs was that team star Owen Nolan was the recipient of a check in the previously injured back. Later, he assured the fans and team on numerous websites including the Leafs official page that his back is fine. One thing for sure, team captain Mats Sundin played host as he hails from Sweden.
