Toronto Maple Leafs Top 20 Young Leafs: No.17-20

1 of 6

We here at EditorInLeaf are always trying to come up with new ways of keeping you, Leafs Nation, entertained and informed. We’ve had some hype pieces, but with the pre-season underway and the regular season just around the corner, it’s time to kick off the party!

Welcome to EditorInLeaf’s 2nd Annual Top20 Young Leafs. Here is Part One of our 5 Part Series; Young Leafs No.17-20.

Now, scouts mostly agree that you don’t know what kind of impact a player will have until he plays 250 games in the league, or just over 3 full seasons. Following that thought process, the writers here at have each voted for our top young Leaf players following that 250 game played cap as well as an age limit of 24 by the start of the season as our only rules.

Each writer has ranked all 43 eligible players from 1 to 20, with a 1st place vote being assigned 20 points, a second place vote being assigned 19 points, etc etc. We then added up each of our individual lists and the points given to each player and came up with the last Top20 rankings. To keep things consistent all player information and stats come from, unless otherwise mentioned.

If you’d like a full break down check out the Intro piece we put out here, as well as pieces on two prospects that I think should’ve made the list in Jeremy Bracco and Yegor Korshkov.

Keep in mind this ranking is by no means the be-all-and-end-all of prospect rankings and is meant purely to help pass the time until training camp and hockey related news starts kicking back up into gear, and maybe serve to enlighten you on just how far the Leafs pipeline of young talent has come and what to expect from them.

Let’s get started with our 20th Top Young Leaf.
