DANIIL (DANNY) MARKOV
- The Beginning: Markov was drafted by the Leafs in the ninth round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He made his debut with the Leafs during the 1997/98 season, and went on to play 200 regular season games and 40 playoff games with the Leafs. Markov was best known for his toughness and fearless approach to playing the game.
- The End: Markov was dealt to the Phoenix Coyotes on June 12, 2001 for Robert Reichel, Travis Green, and Craig Mills. Reichel was the centerpiece to the deal, and he had one good season for the Leafs (51 points in 78 games) followed by two disappointing seasons. Green would play two seasons for the Leafs in a checking role, then spend time with boston and Anaheim before returning to the Leafs for the final 24 games of his NHL career (failing to produce a point in those 24 games). Markov would bounce around the league for the final five seasons of his career, playing for Phoenix, Carolina, Philadelphia, Nashville and Detroit.
- The Jersey Style: The Leafs wore this style of primary blue jersey from 1992 until 2007. However, there were a few changes along the way (namplate and number font changes in 1997, number font changes in 2000, and the introduction of a new TML shoulder patch, also in 2000).
- Jersey Wear: to follow.
- The Season: Markov played 59 games during the 2000/01 season, scoring 3 goals and adding 13 assists. The Leafs finished in 3rd in the Northeast Division. In the playoffs they swept the Senators in 4 games (allowing only 3 goals total in the series), before losing in 7 games to the Devils in Round 2.
