It appears former captain Mats Sundin won't be suiting up for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Alumni Showdown against the Detroit Red Wings on New Year's Eve.

According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph.

"I have had problems with my right knee for a while and I'm having surgery," Sundin told the Star Thursday. "I have not been able to skate this last year and I can't skate with my knee like this. I'm very disappointed, not been able to play in the great alumni outdoor game and represent the Maple Leafs again.

Sundin, who is the Maple Leafs' all-time leader in goals and points, was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012.
