OHL Prospects

Easton Cowan

Easton Cowan is an 18-year-old left-shooting center/winger from Strathroy, Ontario. He is 5'11", 185 Lbs, with a ton of skill. Cowan finished the OHL regular season with 34 goals and 62 assists for 96 points in 54 games with the London Knights. He finished 7th in OHL points.

Cowan is currently helping the Knights in their 2024 OHL playoff run. He has five points through four playoff games. Cowan is under contract with the Leafs until the end of the 2025-26 season for $935,833. The Leafs drafted Cowan in the 1st round of the 2023 NHL draft with the 28th overall pick. He will likely get a long look at training camp and pre-season but could spend one more season in the OHL before turning pro.

Braeden Kressler

Braeden Kressler is a 21-year-old right-shooting center from Kitchener, Ontario. He is 5'9", 174 Lbs, with good playmaking skills. Kressler finished the OHL regular season with 28 goals and 46 assists for 74 points in 65 games split between the Flint Firebirds and Ottawa 67's.

Kressler is currently helping the 67's in their 2024 OHL playoff run. He has five points through six playoff games. He is under contract with the Leafs until the end of the 2025-26 season for $800,556. The Leafs signed Kressler to a three-year entry-level contract in 2021, but it didn't officially kick in until this season.
