One of the Leafs’ latest draft picks, Swiss winger Fabrice Herzog, has been selected by the Quebec Remparts in the first round, 42nd overall of the CHL Import Draft.

Herzog, a 5th round pick of the Leafs in Sunday’s NHL Entry Draft, scored 28 goals and 45 points in 32 games with EV Zug’s U20 club this past season. He added two goals and two assists in 20 games with the Men’s team.

Following the NHL Draft, Leafs GM Dave Nonis implied that Herzog may come to North American to continue his hockey career as early as this coming season.

In Quebec, Herzog would join a talented forward group stocked with several 2013 draft picks, including Adam Erne (Tampa Bay), Nick Sorensen (Anaheim), and Anthony Duclair (New York Rangers).
