It’s finally here! The Toronto Maple Leafs development camp is set to begin on Sunday and run through next Friday, and the team has announced the roster after much anticipation.
For starters, the Leafs are holding camp a week after nearly every other team has opened them up to inviting just about any undrafted prospect they want, which we’ll get to in a second. First, here are all of the Leafs affiliated prospects attending camp:

The rest of the invites are players bound for the NCAA, meaning if they were to sign, they would have to forego their collegiate eligibility. It is very rare to see these players sign in camp, although @Trevor Moore was an example a few years back:

The only European-based prospect attending the development camp is @Dennis Hildeby, interesting given @Roni Hirvonen, @Topi Niemela, and Artur Akhtyamov have all been in Toronto over the past month.
Additionally, the following players are not attending development camp despite fitting the age range:
  • Mikhail Abramov
  • Nick Abruzzese
  • Ryan Chyzowski
  • Semyon Der-Arguchintsev
  • Curtis Douglas
  • Pavel Gogolev
  • Pontus Holmberg
  • Mikko Kokkonen
  • Filip Kral
  • Dmitry Ovchinnikov
  • Nick Robertson
  • Alex Steeves
  • Keenan Suthers
  • Nolan Walker
Overall, this development camp is an interesting mix of owned prospects in junior/college or just about to begin their professional career and invites with intriguing value that could be signed. No full-time Marlies are at camp, a bit of a difference from some past camps.
