Our Prime Minister plays hockey and guess what position he plays!


None other than the Right Honourable Stephen Harper is a current player of the Erie Otters! What position does he play? You guessed it: Left Wing! (Note I do not take credit for finding this, nor posting it on the blog for the first time. Frag posted it in Stuart Percy's top 25 under 25 article, but I thought it was so funny (the left wing part) that it deserved a fan post).

Hockey's Future takes a look at the Leafs' top prospects

Nazem Kadri remains top prospect for Toronto Maple Leafs Looks good to me: "1. (1) Nazem Kadri, C, 8.0 C Acquired: 1st round, 7th overall in 2009 As an AHL rookie, Nazem Kadri has adjusted nicely after a rough start with the Maple Leafs that saw him record only six assists in 17 games. With the Marlies, he has evolved into a more responsible player with the puck without sacrificing his dynamic offensive ability. Earlier in the year he had a penchant for bad turnovers at inopportune times, but has cut down in that area of his game. While he's unlikely to compete for a Selke Trophy anytime soon, it's an area that needed improvement (and continues to improve) as he looks to jump to the NHL fulltime. Kadri's game is easily identifiable when he's on the ice courtesy of his silky smooth hands and highlight reel ability. Kadri is one of the top producing rookies in the AHL scoring close to a point per-game pace. He has 10 goals and 17 assists in 28 games this season, and is in the top 15 for rookie scoring even though he missed time when he was recalled in November." (emphasis added by me)

25th-30th Picks From the 1997-2004 NHL Entry Drafts

What can the Leafs expect to get from the first rounder that they received in the Kris Versteeg trade?

Blacker is the Second Best Drafted Defenseman Playing in the OHL


Thats right, Hockey's Future ranks Leafs prospect (2nd round 2009 pick) Jesse Blacker as the second best drafted defenseman playing in the OHL behind only Ryan Ellis. That puts him ahead of 1st round picks Calvin De Haan (12th overall 2009), Erik Gudbranson (3rd overall 2010), and Jarred Tinordi (22nd overall 2010)!!


Christian Hanson. Yeah he's still with the Leafs

A lot of people seem to have forgotten about Christian Hanson so here is a post to just remind everyone who he is and what he has brought to this organization.

So who wishes Dustin Brown was a Leaf?
