As most of you likely expected all along, Morgan Rielly was named the Leafs' top prospect by our panel of writers. He heads up a group of seven defencemen who made the list, along with twelve forwards and a single goaltender.

TLN Top Twenty Prospects: No. 1 - Morgan Rielly

Name: Morgan Rielly
Position: Defence
Hometown: Vancouver, BC
Size: 6’1", 205 lbs
2013 Team: Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL), Toronto Marlies (AHL)
Acquired: Drafted, 1st Round, 5th Overall in 2012

Rielly is the type of high-octane offensive defenceman that every NHL team covets, in the mould of a Kris Letang, Erik Karlsson or Keith Yandle.

But no, I don’t think he should be in the NHL this year.
