During the fall of 1934, Nicholas “Nick” Metz went to the Toronto Maple Leafs. After a stint with Syracuse, a farm team, he was back in Toronto for the playoffs.
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.
