Coming in at number seven on our list is Andreas Johnson, who has really made a name for himself in the last calendar year. In our 2013 list, he didn't crack the top 20. Even more, he has jumped seven (!) spots since the midterm rankings.

Carter “Not Ashton” Verhaeghe comes in as TLN’s 8th best Leafs prospect in terms of talent, but #1 for difficulty of spelling his last name. Although he plays a different style of game than Gauthier (our #9 prospect), his offensive acumen ultimately scored him ahead of Gauthier on our list. Not surprising, given the need for offensively-talented players in the system. And let's be real: Gauthier's year was disappointing.

Wow, someone Justin and I agree on! Jake "The Snake/The Hitman" (all the wrestlers!) Virtanen is a big right winger that plays for the Calgary Hitmen. He's one of those prospects that seems to have all the attributes that could make him a great top line winger in the future.
