Observations

April 2019 – Toronto has signed OHL free agent Justin Brazeau to a two-year AHL contract. He was arguably the top player available to be signed out of the league after posting 61 goals and 113 points in 68 games. This 21-year-old campaign was a career-high by far, but he did score over a point-per-game in the season prior as well. 

At 6’6″ and 225 lbs, Brazeau is physically prepared for the pros. That being said, he did go undrafted twice, in part because of his skating ability. Luckily, the Maple Leafs boast an impressive development program, which can surely turn a 113-point-scorer into a prospect with real NHL fantasy upside. Hayden Soboleski
