Hello Maple Leafs fans!
Mac Hollowell made us all forgot about Sean Durzi last night when he single-handidly gave the Greyhounds a win over the Oshawa Generals by scoring three straight goals to come back from a 2-0 deficit.
#leafsforever D prospect Mac Hollowell scored a natural hat trick including the overtime winner in a 3-2 victory over Oshawa today 👀 pic.twitter.com/OsdI9Zql1U— 51Leafs (@51Leafs) February 3, 2019
He’s the top scorer for Leafs prospects in North America, and is helping the Soo sneakily be one of the best teams in the league.
Also of note, fan voting for the NCAA Hobey Baker award is open and our own Joseph Woll is the Boston College nominee this year. While the Eagles aren’t the best, doesn’t Woll deserve your vote?
He does, so go do it.

Ian, what happened? It seems that the Raiders are paying for having such a great start to the season, but catching up on losses and close games. Get them out of the way now, Raiders. The playoffs are coming.

After a terrible outing in Shawinigan, Bouthillier bounced back with a great showing against the Remparts. It’s hard to really judge how he’s doing with the Sea Dogs being....awful.
