Who doesn’t love summer hockey? It’s happening in Plymouth, MI and Maple Leafs shiny new draft pick Nick Robertson was showing off some moves in a game yesterday against the Swedish squad.

TSN interviewed him after the game. Glutes were mentioned.

Should we get irrationally excited about his results from this tournament?

Yes! Yes we should!

Top 25 Under 25

Speaking of prospects, our Top Top 25 Under 25 series continues. The player we ranked at #22 will be out at 8:00 a.m. today.

Catch up on our previous entries here.

Top 25 Under 25: Mason Marchment holds position at #23
Top 25 under 25: Frederik Gauthier returns to the list at #24
2019 T25U25 #25: Joseph Duszak

I also noticed an old member of our list is making a triumphant return to hockey in North America.

Rad Boss is back! In Komet form. He was ranked at #14 in our 2012 Top 25 to give you an idea of how shallow the Leafs prospect depth was at that time. He was ranked one place above Korbinian “The Battlin’ Slagheap” Holzer that year, who has somehow managed to eke out an NHL career for himself with 157 games played as of now.
