Dave Morrison’s draft tendencies

With the 2013 NHL Entry Draft less than a week away, we’re going to take a few minutes to profile not one of the draft eligible players, but the man who’s running the show for the Leafs – Dave Morrison. An old hand from the John Ferguson Jr. era, Morrison was promoted to Director of…

Leafs Beat Devils 2-1; Thank God for James Reimer

  Hey guys, Cam has asked me to do the post-game tonight. And seeing as it’s well past midnight and I’ve just gotten back from Steve Dangle’s engagement party (congratulations Steve!), this is going to have to be short and sweet. If you’re unhappy with the following recap, blame me, then blame Cam for trusting…

Leafs Prospect Update: March 4th, 2013

The Toronto Maple Leafs put pen to paper on one of their top forward prospects last night, signing Kitchener Rangers winger Josh Leivo to a 3-year entry level contract. Drafted in the 3rd round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Leivo has gone from ‘long shot’ to ‘future pro’ pretty damn quick. A little bit of…

Leafs Prospect Update: February 26th, 2013

Tony Cameranesi had an assist in Minnesota Duluth’s 5-3 loss to cross-campus rivals Minnesota on Friday night, and went pointless in Saturday’s 2-2 tie. It’s fair to say that Cameranesi is playing through a little bit of a slump. The UMD Bulldogs are mired in a nine-game winless streak, during which Cameranesi has managed only…

Leafs Prospect Update: February 5, 2013

Who says Brian Burke is full of hot air? Leafs TV aired it’s annual ‘Behind the Draft’ special this past Friday, and shone a little more light on the Morgan Rielly selection. Immediately after Burke took to the podium and called Rielly’s name, and before Rielly reached the stage, the microphone picks up a quick…

Leafs Prospect Update: December 10th, 2012

With the WHL trade deadline fast approaching, the Moose Jaw Warriors this past week sent St. Louis Blues prospect Joel Edmundson to the Kamloops Blazers for Tyler Bell, Jayden Halbgewachs, and a 1st round pick in 2015. Yes, none of these players have anything to with the Toronto Maple Leafs. I bring this up because this…

Leafs Prospect Update: December 3rd, 2012

Not to sound like a broken record, but Tony Cameranesi had another solid weekend for the NCAA’s Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs. Cameranesi put up a goal and 2 assists in two weekend match ups against Michigan Tech, bringing his season point totals to 6 goals and 15 points in 14 games – that’s good for second…

Leafs Prospect Update: November 18th, 2012

Morgan Rielly’s season just keeps going downhill.  With only 2 points in his past 7 games, the Leafs’ greatest beacon-of-hope faced further humiliation this past week. First, news surfaced that Rielly’s bobblehead release date would be pushed back “due to complications with the manufacturer.” Now, video footage from the Subway Super Series shows Moose Jaw…

The United States Hockey League is an easy league to forget about when checking in on prospects, and understandably so. The top junior league in the U.S, the USHL is often…

Every Monday, our man Justin Fisher will break down the weekend that was for various Leaf prospects worldwide. Last week’s report can be found here.

Leafs Prospect Update: October 29th, 2012

Every Monday, our man Justin Fisher will break down the weekend that was for various Leaf prospects in college and Canadian junior hockey. Well, this is embarrassing. My first day on the job, and it’s been a relatively uneventful weekend for Leafs prospects. A goal here, an assist there… and I was hoping to report…
