Leafs Select Riley Stotts 83rd Overall

From the Calgary Hitmen in the WHL, the Leafs select left-handed center Riley Stotts with their 83rd overall pick.

A mid-season change from the Swift Current Broncos to the Calgary Hitmen was massive for Stotts. Going from just three points in twenty-two games for the Broncos, then scoring forty-one points in forty-four games for the Hitmen. The most probable cause for this was the insane depth the Broncos have. Stotts got the chance to play more minutes with the Hitmen and performed properly.

I guess that’s fun?

    I like this pick. From everything I’ve read or watched, this guy is a worker and will be a favourate of Babcocks. Another thing I found interesting about him and what’s lacking on the Leafs, is character. The Leafs need guys that will do everything and anything to win, I believe he’s that kind of guy who’ll wear his heart on his sleeve.
