Likelihodd of landing on the Toronto Maple Leafs

Luchanko does project somewhat similar to Cowan in how he goes about the game, although he isn't as explosive as the Leafs 1st rounder.

If the Leafs scouting group values that sort of high-tempo game there's a good likeliness they'd be keeping their eyes on Luchanko.

The only question iis if he's still there.

When i first started seeing the impact of Luchanko's game he wasn't a highly regarded prospect, but soon after became a popular choice in draft rankings, with Craig Button ranking Luchanko 20th.

Button also mocked Luchanko 12th to the Philadelphia Flyers. He likely doesn't go that high in the draft, but may very well be gone somewhere in the teens, and if not, it's hard to imagine the Toronto Maple Leafs as a team that wouldnt want to take him.

Luchanko gives the Leafs a high-quality playmaker who plays with a lot of intensity and a high motor. With uncertainty over the future of Mitch Marner in Toronto, having a playmaking talent in Luchanko would somewhat lessen the blow of a potential end for the Leafs star.


But for the stuff on the ice Marner does right, you see a lot of it in Jett Luchanko.
