The Toronto Maple Leafs will pick 23rd in this year's NHL Entry Draft.

Because the Toronto Maple Leafs are picking 23rd, we thought it would be a fun idea to profile 23 potential draft picks they could make in that spot leading up to the draft.

Before the start of this OHL season, Jett Luchanko was not in heavy contention as a top pick in the NHL Draft.

The Guelph Center had a quiet 5 goals, 9 assists & 14 points in 46 games for a Storm team deep in talent down the middle.

The graduation of top centerman Matthew Poitras to the Boston Bruins, as well as overager Cooper Walker going pro, Luchanko finally found a bigger opportunity to gift himself a chance to make his name heard, and much to that he did.

Luchanko didn't just benefit from more playing time, he's an exceptionally hard worker on the ice who consistently plays a high-impact and high-tempo game, and despite being one of the younger players in this draft as an August 2006 birthday, Luchanko is one of this year's smartest draft eligible prospects.
