NHL Player Comparisons for Toronto Maple Leafs' Top Prospects
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

The Toronto Maple Leafs have some very good prospects who have already become significant players on some nights this season. The team has been forced to use some young players through a combination of injuries and suspensions.

While many of the Leafs' stars have been acquired through trade or free agency, homegrown talent is beginning to blossom. Nazem Kadri and James Reimer are two good examples of this. Even with the salary cap likely rising in the coming years, teams will need to develop young talent through the draft and their farm systems.

To determine prospect status, we'll use the well-respected Hockey Futures criteria, which includes players 24 years old and younger that have not played more than 65 NHL games.

Let's look at the NHL player comparisons for these five Maple Leaf prospects.

Honorable mentions go to Matt Finn and Carter Ashton.
