The 2021 Top 20 Leafs Prospects: #9 Mikhail Abramov

After a couple of seasons where the Toronto Maple Leafs have struggled to graduate prospects on entry-level contracts to the NHL lineup, their 2019 draft class will be looking to change that narrative. Four of Toronto’s selections in that draft feature inside our top 10 and fourth-round pick Mikhail Abramov is a big part of…

When could Bobby McMann be in an NHL lineup?

Bobby McMann and where he could be playing this year is very interesting. With all the players that the Toronto Marlies have, he could be sent to the Newfoundland Growlers. However, he could stick with the Marlies if he has a good training camp. In this video, I discuss when, and if, McMann could make…

The 2021 Top 20 Leafs Prospects: #10 Mikko Kokkonen

If I were to ask you to picture the prototypical analytics age defensive defenseman, the image you would likely conjure up in your head would probably look an awful lot like 2019 Maple Leafs 3rd rounder Mikko Kokkonen. Kokkonen doesn’t blow you away with his dazzling speed, and he doesn’t knock your socks off with…

The 2021 Top 20 Leafs Prospects: #11 Joey Anderson

Joey Anderson is a strange player in the Toronto Maple Leafs prospect pool. Usually, players that have 53 games of NHL experience aren’t put into the “prospect” category. Anderson is somewhat of an exception, though, having played most of the past two seasons in the AHL and still being only 23 years of age. The…

There’s no one way to be a hockey fan, and that’s okay

I took the summer off from hockey. There. I said it, acknowledged it, it’s out there and real. I tried for a while to play it off like my life got busy, I was overwhelmed with moving and work, etc etc. And all of that is true. But what is also true is I made…

The 2021 Top 20 Leafs Prospects: #12 Veeti Miettinen

There aren’t many Toronto prospects I currently enjoy watching more than Veeti Miettinen. In hindsight, it seems silly that he wasn’t drafted earlier than he was. He’s the largest riser in The Leafs Nation Prospects rankings from 2020 to 2021 and frankly, he deserves it. I personally ranked Miettinen the highest amongst the TLN writers…

The 2021 Top 20 Leafs Prospects: #13 Mac Hollowell

Mac Hollowell has all the makings of a fan favourite. He’s a local boy, puts up a ton of points, isn’t afraid to drop the gloves once in a while, and plays the coveted RD position. His 5’10 frame may have been mocked when the Leafs selected him in the 4th round of the 2018…
