Toronto Maple Leafs prospect report: Everyone gives thanks (except Keaton Middleton)

New, comments

Poor guy is still stuck in the winless town of Saginaw

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Not a lot of games were played in the OHL last week, but Fedor Gordeev and Nicolas Mattinen were busy with the Firebirds as they made a far east road trip from Kingston to Ottawa.

Keaton Middleton only played one game, but he’s got to be frustrated with the team in Saginaw, as they start the year 1-3-1, and are looking to finish near the bottom of the OHL West yet again.

Out west, Ian Scott is still injured and Vladimir Bobylyov is off to Russia apparently. The NCAA season started and the biggest story is JD Greenway sitting out the weekend with some personal issues. The team won’t talk past that, and hopefully he’s back on the ice soon.

Below you can find the PPG and NHLe stats for the skaters. NHe isn’t perfect but it’s fun to play with. Right now Rassanen over a point per game with Kingston, hopefully it will continue through the year but he’s riding that 4 point game high right now.
