I thought I'd enhance Justin Fisher's prospect update from yesterday since I'm doing some tracking at a league-wide level.
 
With there being no end in the immediate future to rectify the NHL lockout, our thoughts fall into the pipeline. Here's a detailed look at the Leafs prospects throughout North American Hockey Leagues.

I track these NHL-wide in a google doc, updated weekly Monday.

OFFENSE FROM THE DEFENSE

I've found myself drifting towards the Leafs defensemen across the CHL. It's no secret how much I favor puck rushing blueliners, those with the ability to move the puck up through the neutral zone and gain the opposition zone. That's Morgan Rielly.

 
Matt Finn added a more creative offensive element, to compliment outlet passing ability, as Sean Lafortune stated during his draft year. There's a good example here of a capable partner to a prime rushing defenseman, say Rielly, with a stronger two-way presence, the ability to contribute offensively, while being defensively responsible.
 
 
Stuart Percy has been a steady points producer throughout the season. He's developed some of the offensive side of his game as well, but he's likely to remain a strong defensive presence. If there's one thing all young defensemen should learn to incorporate into their reportoire is a crisp, accurate outlet pass. Percy won't have to be relied upon as an offensive catalyst, maintaining that outlet passing ability will enhance the transition game.
