    I will be posting these informational prospect updates every month. This one is a little shorter than you can expect, as the NCAA season is barely underway and the Maple Leafs have an array of collegiate prospects that I will be tracking throughout the ’08/’09 season.

    Mikhail Stefanovich’s Quebec Remparts have started the year off ablaze, standing 10-1 through 11 games played. Quebec is currently on a nine game winning streak, during which they’ve outscored their opponents 28-12. Stefanovich did not appear in the first four games of the QMJHL season as he was still attending Leafs training camp, but since returning to junior he’s recorded 6 points (2 goals, 4 assists) in 7 games and the Remparts have yet to lose with him in the line-up. The centerman notched an assist in his ’08/’09 debut in a 4-3 shootout win over Drummondville on September 26, before scoring his first ’08/’09 goal at home to Cicoutimi in a 4-2 win on October 4th. Stefanovich then recorded consecutive two point nights against Rouyn Noranda and Val-d’Or. After posting 66 points in 62 games last season, the 4th round pick in 2008 is currently on pace for a 56 point season based on early projections. Patrick Roy’s Remparts are hoping to set a QMJHL record for consecutive wins away from home and must win their next three away games to surpass the former record of eight consecutive away wins held by the 1977-’78 Cornwall Royals… read more.
