Observations

March 2020 – Leason’s first season (well in this paused reality) went pretty terrible for the first year AHLer. He finished with 14 points in 50 games, which from mid-December was eight points in the final 25 minutes. He was still in the bottom six when in the line up (though he still played a majority of two of the three AHL weekend games), but he did not do much to stand out. It would likely be that he cannot push players around like he could in his final junior season but he really should have adapted better. With 56 shots in 50 games, he really needs to do more if he ever wants to make the NHL. Pat Quinn

 

December 2019 – Here we are in mid-December and Leason has six points in 25 games, with him getting three points in one of those games. That i snot great. To be fair to Leason he is routinely put in the bottom-six and has started to get scratched more and more. Yet, Leason really has to show he belongs and so far he does not do much to stand out in any shifts. He may have lost confidence, or he may be one of those players that takes a while to get production, but it is a little concerning. Pat Quinn

 

September 2019 – Leason was sent down to the AHL rather quickly as there was no room on the roster, and Leason needs AHL time. As an overagers he was a risky second round pick for the Capitals but may turn out. I remain not hopeful but stranger things have happened. We will see how his first AHL season progresses. Pat Quinn

 

June 2019 – The Capitals used the teams second round pick to select overage player Brett Leason from the Price Albert Raiders. Leason was pegged to go first round in many scouting circles but many scouts (including this one) remains hesitant on his upside. Normally a player that posts 89 points in 55 regular season WHL games, and 25 points in 22 playoff games, would have many people excited but this was Leason’s third CHL season and he turned 20 in April. Many players that are 6-4 and over 200 pounds dominate CHL games not matter how great their speed and skill are. Leason does have skill but will it translate to the pro game or will he be another overage player that caps at a good AHL producer. Right now peg him in as a future line two power forward that can score around 50-55 points and watch his AHL production. Pat Quinn
