2011-12: Percy made his pro debut — appearing in one regular season game and three playoff contests for the AHL’s Toronto Marlies — following an injury-filled third junior season that included two concussions and an October knee injury. He had an assist in his AHL debut on April 15th against Adirondack and played all three games in the first round series with Rochester; finishing plus-one with no points nor penalties.  Limited to 34 games during the regular season for Mississauga St. Michael’s, he scored 5 goals with 25 assists and was plus-18 with 41 penalty minutes.

In four AHL games he scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was -1 with 2 penalty minutes. Toronto finished first in the North Division and reached the second round in the AHL playoffs.

The Steelheads reached the playoffs despite finishing last in the Central Division; falling to Belleville in six games. Percy had 2 assists and was -6 with 4 penalty minutes in six playoff games.

Talent Analysis

Percy possesses all-round capability, and is very calm under pressure situations. He moves the puck efficiently out of the defensive zone and is starting to become a threat offensively – although he is unlikely to develop into a premiere offensive defender. He is still developing his power and skating skills.


Percy made the Maple Leafs out of training camp and was given a long look in October before being assigned to the AHL's Toronto Marlies. Shuffling between the Marlies and Leafs in his second pro season he is expected to be a key force on the Toronto blue line for years to come. To stay at the NHL level on a permanent basis he must continue to add strength and become more consistent in his own end.

Toronto Maple Leaf prospects playing for the AHL affiliate Toronto Marlies are undergoing a baptism by fire, and playing to mixed reviews. With a lineup that has iced 22 Maple Leafs prospects during the 2014-15 season, the Marlies’ season has been a roller coaster ride. Over the first 10 games, the Marlies finished with a respectable five wins and five losses. They subsequently went on a nine game losing streak that saw them score only 13 goals in that nine game span. They have begun to right the ship however and have a 7-1-2 record in their last 10 games.

The emergence of New Jersey Devils defenseman Damon Severson as an offensive presence after making the jump directly from junior hockey to the NHL has been a bit of a surprise.
