It was a relatively quiet week for the Leafs prospects playing in the CHL.
After a recording five assists on October 13th, Morgan Rielly has three points (one goal, two assists) in the last three games with a minus 1 rating. He is currently tied for second in the WHL scoring amongst defencemen with 15 points. His 12 assists lead all WHL defencemen.
Fellow 2012 draft pick, Matt Finn is also putting up solid numbers for the Guelph Storm. He sits fourth in OHL scoring for defencemen (12 points) but leads in goals (five) to go along with a +10 rating.
Finn and the Storm are tied for first in the OHL thanks to the steady play of Garret Sparks. The goaltender has won three straight games despite allowing nine goals including five in a 8-5 Storm victory. In back-to-back wins he stopped 86 of 92 shots including turning aside 45 of 46 in a 7-1 win on Sunday. For the season he is 8-2-3 with a 3.40 GAA and .904SV%
Erie Otters captain Connor Brown was selected by the Leafs in the 6th round this past June and he currently has 13 points in 12 games. He is in second place in team scoring behind Connor McDavid the 15-year-old teen phenom.
David Broll has now gone seven consecutive games without a point. The big forward is a minus 1 during that stretch with six penalty minutes.
Playing in his first season with the Oshawa Generals, Tyler Biggs’ strong play has continued as he recorded two points last week (one goal, one assist). He sits sixth in team scoring with a +4 rating and 21 penalty minutes. Biggs and the Generals are in first place in the Eastern Conference’s East Division.
Josh Leivo was the Leafs third round selection in 2011 and he continues to lead the Sudbury Wolves in goals (eight) and points (11). Leivo had two points last week as the Wolves went 1-1.
2011 first round pick Stuart Percy recorded his third goal of the season in Mississauga’s 5-3 win over Sarnia last Thursday. Percy has five points in 11 games this season with a +1 mark on a struggling Steelheads team.
It has been a tough season thus far for the London Knights and Leafs prospect Ryan Rupert. The Leafs 6th round choice in 2012, Rupert has just two points in October after a strong start to the season. Despite being just 5’9 he leads the team in penalty minutes with 27.
