Expansion Draft: Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto Maple Leafs:
Potential, young, and quick are all part of the new philosophy of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vegas was hoping for more players to be exposed but no such luck on that case. There a few veteran presence impact players that could be selected with the likes of Eric Fehr, Brian Boyle and Brooks Laich being made available. However, the young guns of Toronto were forced to leave one young forward available with a great name in Kerby Rychel. Selected as the 19th pick in the 2013 draft, he has been working in the AHL with the Marlies accumulating 52 points in 73 games this past year. Rychel provides Vegas with a young, hungry talent who can potentially be a valuable asset for their team down the line but is set to become a restricted free agent after next season.
Coaster’s Pick: Kerby Rychel
