It's been said before but Leier's numbers are likely inflated because of the team he plays for. Portland has been an offensive dynamo for in recent years in the WHL.

Portland is first in the WHL in goals for with 158 goals in 33 games (4.7 per game) while Oshawa is 5th in the OHL with 127 goals in 35 games (3.6 per game).

Portland's a pretty deep team compared to Oshawa who are being carried basically by Laughton, Michael Dal Colle, & Cole Cassels right now.
