Last week, the Melville Millionaires honoured NHL Hall of Famer Darryl Sittler, with the unveiling of a special commemorative banner at the Horizon Credit Union Center.
The banner celebrated the 40th anniversary of Sittler’s 10 point game against the Boston Bruins in 1976, when he was captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In that game, Sittler scored six goals and had four assists. It is a record which has yet to be broken.
The banner was also a way for the local hockey team to express their appreciation to Sittler for attending the recent Melville Minor Hockey Association’s 2016 Sportsman’s Banquet as the keynote speaker for the event.
