Brian Huddle put together this piece on Leafs prospect Sondre Olden, who joins the Erie Otters this year via the CHL's Import Draft. Olden talks about the reasoning behind his decision and what's to come for him.
“[I came] just to learn the North American hockey style; it’s better hockey here,” said the six-foot-four Toronto Maple Leafs prospect. “If you want to make the jump to the NHL, you have to know how to play the game over here.”
I have high hopes for Olden. He's off to a good start with 2 goals in 3 games, It'd be nice if he could put up PPG numbers.
same, atm he is playing LW apparently, I don't know if this is true and mckegger at center. I was expecting the opposite roles for each other, as Mckegger was pegged best player in the LW and olden good for center lol
Olden and McKegg are in for a lonnnnng year. Erie is pegged to be last in the league which explains the bad +/- so far. I wish Olden was drafted by a good team so he could develop around better players.
