2. Egor Korshkov – 23 years old – RW

At my number two spot I have the big Russian Egor Korshkov, and boy do I like Egor Korshkov and what he has been doing down in the Marlies. Not to mention the one game he had with the Toronto Maple Leafs this season.

Korshkov who was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round of the 2016 NHL draft brings more than just 6’4 size to the table when playing hockey.

In his first game with the Toronto Maple Leafs this season when he got called up to play against Buffalo he played a pretty good game, for despite  being limited to 10:08 TOI, he scored a goal.

I can see Korshkov either making the team out of training camp (again, if they go ahead and don’t re-sign certain guys on the bottom six) or getting a decent amount of games in next season mid way in due to injuries.
