Untitled[edit]

In 1958, he joined the Toronto Maple Leafs, winning the Calder Trophy as N.H.L. rookie of the year. Over a twenty-two year career, Mr. Mahovlich's trademark grace and powerful skating style made him one of professional hockey's true superstars. He scored 626 goals, was selected to nine All-Star teams, and was a member of six Stanley Cup- winning teams - four with Toronto and two with the Montreal Canadiens. In 1971, he tied the record for most play-off points.

In addition to his storied on-ice exploits, Mr. Mahovlich has been a great ambassador for the game of hockey and an outstanding role model.

He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981, to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame 1990 and to the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame. In 1994, Mr. Mahovlich was made a Member of the Order of Canada. In 2002, he received an honourary Doctorate from St. Francis Xavier University.

He is married to Marie Devaney Mahovlich.

They have raised three children: Michael, Nancy and Edward.

Your fact sheet lists Senator Mahovlich's birthplace as "Windsor, Ontario". The information I have seen indicates he was in fact born in Schumacher, Ontario (near Timmins).
