Maple Leafs Prospects: Stats Update
Our very own Larry Forman (Keon) has done some great work digging up stats for the Maple Leafs prospects that are spread out across North America and Europe. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting for us, Keon!
Carter Verhaeghe is off to a slow start on a poor Niagara team, but had a better weekend. He has played 9 games, scoring 3 goals and 3 assists.
Dominic Toninato is off to a great start in his sophomore season with Minnesota-Duluth of the NCHC. In his first 4 games, he has 5 goals and 2 assists.
His team mate, Tony Cameranesi has 2 goals and 3 assists in the same number of games played.
Boston University freshman J.J. Piccinich has not registered a point yet, but the Terriers have only played 1 game.
Another freshman, Nolan Vesey, playing for the University of Maine Black Bears is pointless through 4 games, but has racked up 19 PIM. He is another big kid at 6-2, 210.
Dakota Joshua has 4 goals and 5 assists in 8 games in his second season with the Sioux Falls Stampede. At 6-3 and already 194 pounds, the 18 year old will be a player to keep a close eye on. Apparently he is committed to Ohio State University for next season.
The Leafs first round pick in June, William Nylander, has 1 goal and 1 assist in his first 2 games with MODO.
Frolunda forward Andreas Johnson has started well again this season, scoring 5 goals and 3 assists in 12 games. He also has 16 points (7g, 9a) in only 4 Champions League games.
Pierre Engvall started the season with Frolunda J20 team, where he had 2 goals and 3 assists in 5 games. Since then he has been loaned to Oskarshamn of the Allsvenskan League. He has no points in 2 games. Interestingly enough, former Leaf Luca Caputi also plays for Oskarshamn.
Fabrice Herzog returned to Switzerland this year after scoring 32 goals with the Quebec Remparts a year ago. He has played 14 games for Zug with 2 goals and an assist.
