#10 - Greg McKegg - C (Toronto, AHL)
Greg McKegg is a player I've liked ever since he was the one bright spot on a dismal Erie roster, and after interviewing him at a Canadian Juniors development camp a few years back I can't help but root for. That's probably why I'm excited to see him rebound from his tough first professional season and cement his place in the Marlies top six, frequently centering the top line.
Whether McKegg has the ability to move beyond that role remains to be seen, but with few options at that position it is likely we could see McKegg getting spot duty in the NHL next year. If McKegg is going to take the next step it would probably be better to shift him back to the wing. - Jon Steitzer

I guess one way to be more like the Los Angeles Kings is to trade with the Los Angeles Kings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs swapped minor league forwards with Los Angeles this evening, sending Andrew Crescenzi to the Kings for right winger Brandon Kozun.

In most cases, being an “honourable mention” is not much to be proud of. Not the case when it comes to our Top 20 Leafs Prospect Midterm Rankings - at least these guys all showed up on someone’s top twenty list! There’s a number of prospects who didn’t, and they brought great shame upon their families. Out of respect, we won’t publish those names.
