Fantasy Summary

Well-rounded scoring forward with some power elements to his game. A bit of a late bloomer but could see time as a depth player in the NHL.

January 2023 – After a solid start to his season with the Toronto Marlies, Bobby McMann has been given a chance to show his worth at the NHL level. Although he has been held off the scoresheet through his first five games, McMann has shown excellent forechecking abilities and an underrated shot. It’s unlikely he will stick around all the way until playoffs, especially if the Maple Leafs make a couple of trade acquisitions up front, but it is a positive development to know he can be a depth option down the stretch.

May 2022 – It was a breakout season in the AHL for McMann after beginning the campaign with the Newfoundland Growlers of the ECHL. After an injury forced top prospect Nick Robertson out of the lineup early in the season, McMann was recalled to the AHL and took full advantage of the opportunity. He played all over the lineup throughout the season and added a spark to whatever unit he was skating with, ultimately finishing with a Marlies rookie record of 24 goals to go along with 11 assists in 61 games. That production, combined with his well-rounded game, high compete level, and power forward traits earned him a two-year entry-level contract with the Leafs that will kick in at the beginning of the 2022-23 season. Something of a late bloomer, the undrafted McMann has continued to develop into his mid-twenties while climbing the ranks from the ECHL to the doorstep of the NHL. He should get a look in training camp next fall and with another strong start in the AHL, he could eventually force his way into the conversation as a depth option for the Leafs. Nick Richard
