Jake Gardiner FOR Sean Couturier


Jake Gardiner (Defense)
22 Years Old July 4th 1990
6'02'' 185 Pounds
2008 NHL Draft 1st Round 17th Overall


2010-11 Toronto Marlies AHL 10 0 3 3 4
2011-12 Toronto Maple Leafs NHL 75 7 23 30
2011-12 Toronto Marlies AHL 4 0 2 2 2
2012-13 Toronto Marlies AHL 43 10 21 31
2012-13 Toronto Maple Leafs NHL 12 0 4 4

Assets: Is a smart player with the puck. Skates well due to an effortless stride. Has offensive ability, likes to join the attack, and boasts all-round upside. Can quarterback a power play.

Flaws: Needs to fill out his relatively smallish 6-0 frame in order to withstand the rigors of the pro game. Must also become a little more assertive and aggressive, as well as keep his intensity level on high in defensive situations.

Career Potential: Mobile offensive defenseman with good upside.


Sean Couturier (Center)
20 Years Old December 7th 1992
6'04'' 190 Pounds
2011 NHL Draft 1st round 8th Overall


2011-12 Philadelphia Flyers NHL 77 13 14 27
2012-13 Adirondack Phantoms AHL 31 10 18 28
2012-13 Philadelphia Flyers NHL 46 4 11 15

Assets: Has outstanding two-way instincts. Is capable of playing a shutdown role with aplomb. Also boasts very good offensive upside and a very projectable frame.

Flaws: Isn't the fastest skater, so he needs to work on that aspect of his game in order to maximize his two-way upside. Is also somewhat of a work-in-progress offensive player.

Career Potential: Talented two-way center with good upside.
