3 Untouchable Prospects For the Toronto Maple Leafs

1. Easton Cowan

To get the obvious one out of the way I'll start with Easton Cowan, who has been one of the top players in the entire OHL this year.

After looking like a reach by the Leafs at 28th overall in last year's draft, Cowan has put together an incredible season with the London Knights proving everyone wrong.

Cowan has now racked up a 24-game point streak, helping lead the London Knights to first place in the entire OHL.

The 18-year-old has a bright future with the Leafs, and they should not consider trading him.

Drafted in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft last summer, the Leafs picked Cowen with the 28th overall pick. It was the pick they got from Washington in the Rasmus Sandin trade.

Cowen was an off-the-board pick that was criticized heavily at the time, but the Leafs are the ones laughing now as he's turned into one of, if not their very best prospect.
