The Toronto Maple Leafs from the NHL mourn their long-time captain George "Chief" Armstrong. The Canadian led the team to four Stanley Cup wins (1962, 1963, 1964, 1967) and is the franchise's record player with 1118 appearances.

Armstrong, who only played for the Maple Leafs in his NHL career, died at the age of 90.

"Rest in peace, George. You will be missed very much," said club president Brendan Shanahan. Armstrong was the team captain for twelve years. The striker retired in 1971 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1975. In the 1988/89 season, the club legend from Skead / Ontario was temporarily head coach of the Leafs.

Armstrong was one of the first professional ice hockey players of Native American origin. Hence his nickname "Big Chief Shoot-the-Puck".
