Alex Steeves – Left Wing

Alex Steeves currently has six goals and nine points in nine games since returning from the injury he suffered during the first game of the prospects tournament this preseason.

Steeves may have been the most impressive player at development camp, but missed the Toronto Maple Leafs main camp and the start of the AHL season due to the injury.

Right now, Alex Steeves is on pace to be top 5 in AHL rookie scoring this season, and he’s sure to improve his pace throughout the year.

If he can keep up his point per game pace, he may get a call up to the Toronto Maple Leafs this season to fill in for injuries.  If not, he’ll at least get a great opportunity at the Maple Leafs training camp next season.

There are still lots of young stars looking to break out on the Toronto Marlies.  Semyon Der-Arguchintsev, Pavel Gogolev and Mikhail Abramov are all still rookies in the league and could make a great impact this season.

It’s an exciting time for the Toronto Marlies, and it will be fun to see how many of these players will be Toronto Maple Leafs in the future.
