Listening to the Moose Jaw game on radio, Morgan Rielly just got an assist. 3-1 Swift Current.

Watched Leivo and Biggs tonight.

Leivo has improved a ton. This guy is going to sky rocket up our prospect ranking. He has good mobility, has some nice hands and isn't afraid to pass. This could be a late gem by Burke. This kid will be carrying the load for Sudbury this year, and they've already had a good start winning a tournament overseas before pre-season.

Onto Biggs, Oshawa was coming off a back-to-back from Peterbrough to Sudbury. They had to sit and wait for the Wolves ceremonies (took at least 10 minutes + national anthem). Biggs started the game and wasn't a big component. He was pretty quiet, seemed to avoid high offensive zones but was not shy parking in front of the net on the PP and when he could.. He has some pretty good speed but he didn't seem to be into the back check as much. Again, it's 2 games in 2 night so it could be fatigue. He has some good hands, he doesn't really force anything and he doesn't make very many high risk plays. I didn't see him lose a puck battle all night either. He's so strong..

Go back a decade and the Leafs had about 7 players on team Canada over 2 seasons.

Let's see how many of the current prospects make team Canada.

Burke was in attendance in Moose Jaw.

Swift Current announcers were talking about how much Rielly has played tonight, one of them guessed over 40 minutes. He's gotta get used to it though haha. Heard he was a force every time he was on the ice. Finishes with one assist. Moose Jaw came back to win 4-3 in OT.

Hopefully someone who actually watched can comment on Rielly. Sounded like he made a lot of great plays.

2nd star too.

Ian White
Carlo Colaiacovo
Brendan Bell
Jay Harrison?
Kyle Wellwood
Matt Stajan
Brad Boyes

In retrospect they all did turn out to be NHL players.

I know junior hockey star defensemen play a lot but that seems really excessive haha. Would be interesting if someone was able to use a stopwatch and actually see how much he plays one night.

I remember Morrison saying this about Finn too. When they asked the coach about him he said that he definitely has room to improve because every night he plays Finn so much so he runs out of energy to do more because he needs to pace himself.

Morgan Rielly picked up an assist and was named 2nd star of the game vs Broncos. Matt Finn picked up 3 assists and also 2nd star of game vs Spirit

BTW, 2011 5th round pick Tony Cameranesi will play his first NCAA game on October 10th.

My guess for this years crew to make it:

Rielly(obvious)
Ross(potentially)
Stuart Percy
Finn?
Leivo?

Biggs on team USA for sure

Not Ross. He's now overage. But Tom Nilsson might have a shot at the Swedish team.

If the lockout continues, it will mean there will be unusually fierce competition for Team Canada in particular.

Yeah I thought about that group of Stajan, Bell, White, Harrison, ect...when I made my statement. I still think this group will be head and shoulders better than that group of players. They may not be represented on Team Canada as much as that group but I do believe this group of players will be more impactful to the Leafs.

Leafs 3rd and maybe forgotten pick of this draft since he plays in Fargo, Dominic Toninato had a goal and an assist in Fargo's last preseason game. Morrison really liked this kid, could be a sleeper.

Dominic Toninato

Patterns his game after Jonathan Toews, well spoken young man. Long range prospect worth keeping an eye on.

BTW I like your avatar, he may be a surprise at Leafs camp next year, just turned 20 also, a late birthday draftee that may have slid under the radar.

I managed to watch Rielly play last night. One of the best performances I've seen from him. His coach really relies on him as the Warriors back end isn't exactly great right now. I'd imagine he played well over 30 minutes. He was on the ice in all key situations and played very very well in his own end along with creating all the offence he usually does. He's a one man breakout. This is the type of player that can provide the impact you expect of a top 5 pick.

Well if you play 30-40 minutes a night including on the PK, I assume he's pretty good defensively and capable of playing defense in those long shifts. Also from what I've seen in the playoffs last year, the rookie camp, and the Canada - Russia challenge, he seems atleast average defensively. He is very mobile, is willing to block shots, good positioning, and what stood out to me in my limited viewings is how good he is at getting the puck out fast with either his skating or a quick pass up and out.

That's great, if he's logging big minutes all year it will be great for his development.

Not in the least bit worried about that from what I've seen. His acceleration and smooth skating strides will get him out of trouble more often than not. He also seems smart enough to know when to join a rush, take it himself, or stay back on a developing play.
