With the 172nd overall pick in the NHL draft, the Leafs selected forward Ryan McGregor.

McGregor, a left-handed forward, has spent the last two seasons with the Sarnia Sting of the OHL. He stands at 6’0”. His offensive production in the OHL leaves a little something to be desired.

Sarnia Sting coach Derian Hatcher had this to say about McGregor, in an interview with InsideHalton:

“He can make those little greasy plays and makes passes in tight spaces. His overall knowledge of the game — he’s a smart hockey player. The way he thinks the game, you can’t teach that.”

He spent most of last summer recovering from a concussion he sustained at the end of the 2015-16 season.

McGregor was left off of most draft lists but was ranked #249 by Future Considerations.
