It’s only two days into the Toronto Maple Leafs' rookie tournament, and training camp still may be a wee bit away from beginning, but it’s never too early to increase your stock, something a few Maple Leafs prospects are finding out this week in Kitchener, Ontario.
Five members of the Toronto Maple Leafs looking to make an impression at training camp got an early start this past weekend. With their play, their stocks have gone up a little bit.
With that in mind, here is your first update to the Maple Leafs Stock Exchange (MLSX for short).
Tyler Bozak: Starting Stock Value: $85, Current Stock Value: $87
One of the players many are divided on heading into training camp got a nice quick start at the rookie tournament this past weekend. Through two games, Bozak has a pair of goals and has been a highly noticeable player throughout the first 120 plus minutes of the tournament.
The most common knock on Bozak is that despite bulking up 20 pounds in the offseason, he is still a very easy player to knock off the puck. And while he may need a little more seasoning, the first two games of the rookie tournament have undoubtedly raised Bozak’s stock. It’ll be interesting to see how good he does next week in the Maple Leafs' main training camp, competing against people more his age.
