2022 TLN Prospect Rankings: #12 Semyon Der-Arguchintsev

This past season was the start of something new between the Maple Leafs and Semyon Der-Arguchintsev. Although the 21-year-old had one short stint of pro while on loan in the KHL, this would be his true taste of North American professional hockey. And it was a fascinating year to say the least.

2022 TLN Prospect Rankings: #14 Mikhail Abramov

When Mikhail Abramov entered the Maple Leafs organization full time, there were plenty of question marks. The 21-year-old seemed like the perfect pick for Toronto in the fourth round back in 2019.

2022 TLN Prospect Rankings: #19 William Villeneuve

The pandemic NHL Draft was one of the most interesting — the Maple Leafs and every other team in their own war room drafting players in October rather than June. Toronto had 12 picks back in 2020, the most they’ve had in a draft since 1996. A number of good players were picked but the…

The most interesting tidbits from day 5 of Leafs development camp

And so the race begins — after another session of Leafs development camp in the books, one day remains — the second scrimmage. It was a similar day to Wednesday, where the two groups were separated, skating on different pads. But on the back-half of the two-hour session, both groups were combined and did drills…
