July 2014 – After a decent 36 point season for Vaxjo in the Swedish Hockey League, the Leafs declined to tender him a qualifying offer, thus declining their rights on him making him a Free Agent. It is unlikely that another NHL team will make an offer to him and he will stay in Europe for the near future. He could resurface in his 30’s as an AHL franchise may wish to utilize him as a pure scorer. Jason Banks

September 2013 – Leafs reassigned Lasch back to Vaxjo of the Swedish Elite League last month. His North American career is rather un-notable since leaving the NCAA. Leafs maintain control of his rights until the end of the year, he could be brought back to play in the AHL at the end of the season again if the Marlies need the help, but this scenario is very unlikely.

He has shown good puck movement on the Marlies in a handful of games, but to this point lacks much substance playing on the lower lines. Still not expecting Lasch to become a considerable fantasy prospect, but his contract runs through next season and will be an experienced player for the young to work with. Jason Banks


March, 2013 – The Leafs acquired the rights to Lasch (along with a seventh rounder) for checking center David Steckel. After watching the Leafs give Mike Kostka a chance, Lasch will get a fair shake if there is an opening in the fall. He’s signed to a two-way contract for next year. Dobber


March, 2013 – Obviously not happy with thriving in the ECHL yet getting little opportunity in the AHL, Lasch has moved onto the SEL and is probably done in terms
