 OTTAWA (AP) -Mats Sundin is staying in Toronto - at least for the remainder of the season.
The Maple Leafs captain refused to waive his no-trade clause on Sunday after he and agent J.P. Barry met with Leafs general manager Cliff Fletcher for several hours.
``I have always believed I would finish my career as a Toronto Maple Leaf so the actual request was still a very difficult one for me to contemplate,'' Sundin said in a statement released by his agent J.P. Barry on Sunday night. ``I have spoken to and listened to my family and those closest to me about this issue. In the end, there is no right decision in a situation like this one.''
means October through June. I hope everyone will understand and respect my decision.''
Sundin was considered one of the Leafs' top trade pieces entering Tuesday's NHL trade deadline.
But the 37-year-old center has repeatedly said he doesn't want to leave Toronto, where he has spent the last 13 seasons.
The decision ended a drama-filled weekend for the 37-year-old Sundin, who was first approached about waiving his no-movement clause in a meeting with Fletcher on Thursday. Sundin, who has 62 points this season, will become an unrestricted free agent July 1 and Fletcher had hoped to possibly trade him and recoup some assets to help rebuild the floundering club.
``He advised us that he's staying where he is, which is his contractual right, and that at this time he's not interested in entering into a deal for next year,'' Fletcher told The Canadian Press.
