On This Day September 4th.

September 4: On this day in 1926, Bert Olmstead was born in Sceptre, Sakatchewan. Olmstead became a Leaf in the summer of 1958 when the Canadiens left him unprotected in the Intra-League Draft. The 4 time Stanley Cup winner from the Habs helped lead a turnaround in Toronto that saw the Leafs reach the Finals 3 times over the next 4 seasons and then win a Cup in 1962. Olmstead recorded 56 goals and added 109 assists in his four seasons in Toronto. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1985.

September 4: On this day in 1965, Sergio Momesso was born in Montreal, Quebec. Momesso was with the Leafs for the best part of one season in 1995-96 when he compiled 15 points in 54 games, but was an unreliable minus-11. He was traded before the end of the season and never played a playoff game for the Leafs. One of the biggest goals of his career came against the Leafs in the first round of the 1990 playoffs when he scored the overtime winner in Game 3 for St. Louis against Toronto. The Blues won the series in 5 games.
