MON claims Brooks— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) October 11, 2021

Adam Brooks seems to have lost the lottery for who gets to stay on the Maple Leafs.
Brooks is a decently high risk to be claimed mainly because of his youth, and his very unlikely goal scoring pace in the NHL. He has four goals scored in 18 games played on 12 total shots on goal.
He has too few NHL minutes to get a good impression of his play, but both Michael Amadio, still on the NHL roster and Kirill Semyonov, waiver exempt, are capable of doing what he does with a decent level of certainty.
