On This Day September 7th.

September 7: On this day in 1936, Orland Kurtenbach was born in Cudworth, Saskatchewan.

As a Leaf, the tough Kurtenbach had 15 points. He went on to become the first ever captain of the Vancouver Canucks in the NHL.

September 7: On this day in 1981, Luca Cereda was born in Sementina, Switzerland. Cereda was the Leafs first round draft choice, 24th overall in 1999. He never played a game in the NHL.
