Toronto Maple Leafs prospects recap: Trade rumours begin

New, comments

A point streak ends just before it sets a record, a top player rests for the WJC, and the NCAA starts to break for exams

Jeremy Bracco was close to setting the Kitchener Rangers point streak record. He had passed Steve Downie’s 25 game streak to take second place on the Rangers all time list by scoring his 17th goal of the season in a 3-2 OT win over the Kingston Frontenacs. It would end there however, as the London Knights would keep Bracco off the scoreboard while beating Kitchener 6-2 on Sunday.

Bracco and Boston’s Joseph Woll will head south to Buffalo this week for Team USA’s World Junior Championship camp, and Nikita Korostelev will be heading to the Russian camp, and Martins Dzierkals is staying out of Rouyn-Noranda games, healing a small injury ahead of the tournament.

Stephen Desrocher finds himself rumoured to be on the move for the second time in his OHL career. Last year Desrocher was traded from the 2015 Memorial Cup winning Oshawa Generals to the Kingston Frontenacs, who were making a move for the OHL championship (FYI the IceDogs swept them in the second round). Now his name is being floated to the Hamilton Bulldogs, who are looking to make the OHL playoffs for the first time since moving from Belleville.

Some of the NCAA teams took last week off for exams/winter break, the rest will follow this week.

I’m using the new table builder SBN has given us. It’s sortable now, if that’s your game. If anything is funky to you let me know.
