Talent Analysis

Toffoli has definite offensive skill and he has shown it does not just apply at the junior level. He was a near point per game player in the AHL his rookie season, and was even an impact player with the Los Angeles Kings during the 2013 postseason. While his skating is still a bit of a negative, Toffoli has shown he has the willingness, physicality, and skill to be a top-6 forward at the NHL.




Toffoli announced himself to the NHL stage with a nice late season audition in the 2013 season. He showed he can score and provide skill while not being pushed around by NHL players. There is no reason to think that Toffoli will not live up to the hype of being a top-six forward with the Kings, maybe as early as the 2013-14 season.

With the Manchester Monarchs losing four incredibly key players to NHL call-ups, you would expect that the team would struggle this year with a lack of scoring or depth. However, with several new players and old role players stepping up, the Monarchs have remained an incredibly competitive hockey team and sit atop the AHL's Eastern Conference.
