Video- The Toronto Maple Leafs Honor Eric Brewer’s 1000th NHL Game

from Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun,

The Leafs don’t always get these things right, but the pre-game tribute to honour veteran Eric Brewer for playing in his 1,00th career NHL game was a nice, well-deserved touch. Sure, he has only played 10 games with his latest team, but any NHLer who makes it to the thousand mark should get his due — and the traditional silver stick that goes with it. The video tribute was first class, playing tribute to a defenceman who has represented Canada eight times in his career, including a member of the gold medal winning squad at the Salt Lake City Olympics.

This seemed warmer than Dominik Hasek’s number retirement in Buffalo earlier this year, and this was before Brewer’s 10th game as a Leaf.
