3 Players the Toronto Maple Leafs Should Consider for a PTO

Maxime Comtois:

Maxime Comtois is coming off his most disappointing season in the NHL, only managing 19 points in 64 games played.

He is a left-wing power forward who covers all 200 feet of the ice and is not afraid to throw the body or go to the front of the net.

His tenacity on the forecheck allows him to generate scoring chances from below the hash marks, but he struggles to find the back of the net.

With room to develop and refine his skills, Comtois’ young age presents an opportunity for growth. A PTO contract could offer him the platform to gain experience, learn from seasoned players, and elevate his game to a higher level.

If Comtois were to make the team, he would likely play on the 4th line LW alongside David Kampf and Ryan Reaves or could even be the team’s 13th forward.

His versatility and ability to play up and down the lineup make him a player to watch as we inch closer to training camp.

Comtois is 24 and is coming off a 9 goal, 19 points season in which he played a career high 64 games for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
