Leafs prospect recap: College is over, but the CHL is just getting started

Prospect playoff action from March 21-27

The CHL playoffs started and some of the results are not as expected. London isn't leading it's series, and Sarnia is down two games to The Soo. Travis Dermott is doing great for Erie however, and Bracco and Desrocher aren't shying away from points either.

Our last NCAA prospects were eliminated by Boston College, steps away from making it to the NCAA Frozen Four tournament, robbed by a broken stick:

With UMD done the Leafs have signed a player...just not one they drafted; signing goalie Kasimir Kaskisuo to a two year ELC.

They do have a decision to make with Cameranesi this summer however.

We hopefully have a long way to go before the kids are finished, but even with some surprising losses (London blanked by Owen Sound, Sarnia down 2-0 in their series vs The Soo), we have a long way to go until we're out of prospects playing.
