Mats Sundin had assist in Toronto's 7-1 loss to Carolina on Tuesday night for his 916th point as a Maple Leaf, tying him with Darryl Sittler for the club record. Sundin remained tied with Sittler at 389 for the club's goals record. His assist tied him with Sittler at 527 for second place in team history. Borje Salming owns the record with 620.

Defenseman Bryan Berard signed a one-year, $725,000 deal with the New York Islanders on Tuesday after an impressive tryout during the preseason.
