The Toronto Maple Leafs announced their developmental camp roster on Tuesday.

The Toronto Maple Leasf development camp will feature a total of 39 players made up of 20 forwards, 13 defensemen, and six goaltenders.

This group of prospects will be competing in the NHL prospects tournament held in Traverse City, Michigan. The tournament will run from Thursday, September 16th to Monday, September 20th.

The tournament will feature the Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Columbus Blue Jackets, St. Louis Blues, and Dallas Stars. Toronto will play one game against each team for a total of four games in five days.

Toronto Maple Leafs Prospects To Keep An Eye On

Nick Robertson

Nick Robertson will be looking to have a great tournament in Traverse City as he prepares for Toronto’s main roster training camp and pre-season.  Robertson is one of the players on the bubble of making the Maple Leafs main roster this season.

Robertson registered 16 points in 21 games last season with the Toronto Marlies. He also recorded one point in six games with the Maple Leafs last season. (Stats from

Mikhail Abramov

Mikhail Abramov will be looking to start his first pro season with the Toronto Marlies this year. As the captain of the Victoriaville Tigres in the QMJHL last season, he registered 30 points in 25 games.

During the 2019-20 season, Abramov registered 76 points in 63 games. He is very offensively gifted and will be looking to take that next step in his development.

Erik Kallgren

Erik Kallgren is in the hunt to be one of the goaltenders for the Marlies this season. With Michael Hutchinson and Joseph Woll ahead of him, he is likely headed to the ECHL to play for the Newfoundland Growlers.

Fellow goaltending prospect Ian Scott is also in this tournament. The two could end up battling for the starting goaltenders job with the Growlers. Kallgren posted a 12-9-0 record last season with a 2.37 GAA and a .911 SV% in Sweden playing for the Vaxjo Lakers HC

Joseph Duszak

Joseph Duszak is one of Toronto’s defense prospects to keep an eye on this season. Last season he registered 12 points in 25 games for the Marlies and will be looking to benefit from playing a full season in the AHL.

Duszak is a right shooting defenseman, so his playing time could depend on what the Toronto Maple Leafs do with Timothy Liljegren this season. If Liljegren ends up on the Leafs NHL roster, than it will open up playing time for fellow right shot defenseman like Duszak and Mac Hollowell.

It will be interesting to see who shines in this tournament. I hope to see at least one or two surprises. I would really like to see Nick Robertson dominate at this tournament and prepare himself for the Maple Leafs main training camp.
