With the 29th pick in the 2018 NHL Draft the Toronto Maple Leafs select, from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League, Rasmus Sandin.

The Quick Bio

Sandin is a left handed defender who played a big role on the Greyhounds blueline this year, as they made their best effort at winning the OHL Championship, but ultimately failed yet again. Sandin is under contract with Rogle BK for next season, and since he’s only on loan to the Greyhounds he’s considered a European draft pick so he could go straight to the AHL next season.
