The Toronto Maple Leafs prospect cupboard is well stocked after a number of trades to acquire prospects, sign undrafted free-agents and an active 2015 draft. So much so, that prior to the 2015-16 season, the Leafs moved four prospects—Matt Finn, Christopher Gibson, Tom Nilsson and Carter Verhaeghe—to the Islanders for Michael Grabner. Read more»

It doesn’t get much better in the NHL prospect world when two draft selections taken just nine picks apart other go one-on-one. That is exactly the situation in Sault Ste.

Connor McDavid came through for the Edmonton Oilers this weekend, and is centering one of the most interesting forward combinations so far this year. The Erie Otters miss him, but still boast a perfect record thanks to some tremendous passing. Lawson Crouse and Conor McGlynn helped Kingston to a pair of overtime victories, and Joel Eriksson Ek did the same for Farjestad BK. This and more in this week’s edition of Prospect Impressions.

Ever wonder what would happen if soccer and hockey had a mash-up? Well, Windsor Spitfires forwards Hayden McCool and Cristiano DiGiacinto came up with an interesting rendition. In a bit of backwards poetry in motion, Tyler Parsons, a goaltender, scores a goal and Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner moonlights as a goaltender. That plus plenty of individual goal-scoring highlights in this week’s Prospect Impressions! Read more»

The North Division name comes over from the American Hockey League’s Western Conference along with three teams from last year’s division – Rochester, Utica and Toronto – in addition to the other three teams from New York state – Albany, Binghamton and Syracuse. The St. John’s IceCaps, who have switched their affiliation from Winnipeg to Montreal, also make up this seven-team division that has several pre-existing rivalries due to the close proximity of most of the teams.
