During his illustrious career, he played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Buffalo Sabres. In 1998, he was ranked in the top 50 on The Hockey News’ Top 100 Greatest Hockey Players list.
In 1964 he opened the first Tim Hortons in Hamilton, Ontario. The donut and coffee shop would go on to become Canada’s largest quick service restaurant chain.
