Observations

March 2019 – Rosen took a shot to the foot in late February and still has no timetable for his return. After an outstanding year, and multiple spots opening up in the NHL due to injury, this couldn’t have come at a worse time. Fingers crossed that he is able to see playoff time. Hayden Soboleski
 
January 2019 – Rosen’s excellent campaign continues to reward him – he has been named to the AHL All-Star team. Hayden Soboleski
 
December 2018 – The Leafs have signed Rosen to a two-year extension with one-way pay, indicating that they intend for him to see NHL time over the duration of the deal. This is a strong sign for fantasy owners – he isn’t wasting away in the AHL, his time seems to be coming soon. Hayden Soboleski
 
December 2018 – Rosen has started the 2018-19 campaign in the AHL once again, and currently leads Marlies D in scoring with 18 points in 21 games (2G, 16A). He’s getting some PK time in addition to scoring points, and is putting up fantasy-relevant SOG numbers. He’s also interestingly seeing the occasional shift on the right side, which could make him more useful should an injury call-up be needed. Hayden Soboleski
 
January  2018, Rosen played four games with the Leafs with one assist early in the season before he lost the spot to Borgman. He was sent down to the Marlies where he has played a steady role in 30 games and has eight assists. He does not have much offensive upside but is a steady shut down defenceman. He has slipped down the Leafs depth chart and I would put him behind Dermott, Borgman and perhaps Neilsen for a near-term spot with the Leafs. Rosen has one more year on his NHL entry level contract and will likely be with the Marlies again next year. Brian Harling
 

September 2017 – Coach Babcock seems to be taking a looong look at the elder Swedish D prospect which bodes very well for his chances to win a top-7 defense job. In a pair of games thus far, Rosen has averaged just over 20 minutes a game and had been given a large thumbs up thus far. He is showing well in all situations and my belief has the current upper leg over Travis Dermott and countryman Andreas Borgman for shot at the everyday roster but his role is dependent on how the staff feels about Martin Marincin and invitee Roman Polak’s more seasoned claims on jobs. I cannot see the Leafs’ defense having a similar stable &healthy campaign they enjoyed last year, there is more competition with seemingly NHL ready defenders chomping at the bit to make the jump, the lower defensive role might be a revolving door with Rosen having his foot firmly in the door with good momentum. Jason Banks

 

June 2017 – With improvements and depth needed on the blueline for the organization to move forward, the Leafs went to Sweden to seek similar potential as they found with Nikita Zaitsev. Expectations are not as high as with Zaitsev, but Toronto was one of a handful of teams looking to sign the puck-moving defender. He has shown strong responsibility for his own zone in the Swedish Elite League, but he has a skill set that projects strongly that he will be a more interesting producer than his 33 points in his last 93 SEL games suggest. Now it should not be expected that Rosen steps into the NHL and produces fairly soon like the young Russian did, until training camp, Rosen should only be seen as a ‘potential’ option for the Leafs and currently the strongest candidate if a rookie is utilized. But should the Buds have a good offseason with transactions, he will start in the AHL before earning a regular roster spot. He needs to add meat and tone to handle larger opponents and have the endurance to survive a full North American season which is more intensive than his Swedish experiences. Jason Banks
