1. Kenny Agostino – 27 years old – LW

Finally at my number one spot I have Kenny Agostino.

What differs Agostino from the rest of the group of guys I mentioned is that Agostino has been on five different NHL teams in his six year career, so he has had a decent amount of time playing on different teams and systems at the NHL level.

Kenny Agostino would be a great addition to the bottom six in Toronto on the wing. I wanted him to make the team last year as a fourth liner but he went straight to the Toronto Marlies instead.

When the team went through injuries throughout the year I was just waiting for him to get the call up, but they went and called up guys like Aberg, Marchment, Engvall (which turned out good) and many more guys.

If Agostino is an NHL player and he should be on the Leafs. He has some talent even though he has only played in 85 career NHL games, I think he should hit 100 next season with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

NHL stats – 85 GP – 8 G – 22 A – 30 PTS (CGY, STL, BOS, MTL, NJ)

AHL stats – 326 GP – 109 G – 186 A – 295 PTS (STO, CHI, PRO, LAV, TOR)

2019-20 AHL stats with the Toronto Marlies – 53 GP – 27 G – 22 A – 49 PTS
