During the fall of 1934, Nickolas “Nick” Metz went to the Toronto Maple Leafs. After a stint with Syracuse, a farm team, he was back in Toronto for the play-offs.
In 12 seasons with the Leafs, between 1934 and1948 (minus the WWII years), Nick scored 131 goals and 119 assists, playing centre and left wing. He played 9 out of 12 years in Stanley Cup finals, and was a member of the winning Leafs in 1942, 1945, 1947, and 1948 (along with his brother Don).
Metz was also known as a curler, baseball, and lacrosse player.
