On This Day September 13th.

September 13: On this day in 1913, Phil Stein was born in Toronto, Ontario. On January 18, 1940 Stein made his Leaf debut when he started for an injured Turk Broda in goal for Toronto and helped the team earn a 2-2 tie with the New York Americans. It proved to be Stein's only NHL action. At the time, NHL games included a 10 minute overtime period, thus Stein's total NHL playing time was 70 minutes and his career GAA was 1.71 and not 2.00.

September 13: On this day in 1974, the Leafs accomodated their former 1st choice from the 1971 Amateur Draft Rick Kehoe by meeting his demand to be traded. Kehoe was sent to Pittsburgh in exchange for Blaine Stoughton and a 1st round draft choice in 1977. With the Penguins, Kehoe went on to record 25 or more goals in 9 straight seasons. Blaine Stoughton played a season and a half for Toronto and then jumped to the WHA.
