Leafs Prospect Update (December 28): World Junior Edition

246
Andreas Johnson has 4 points in 2 games for Team Sweden.

The bad news for most of you reading this is that Team Canada doesn’t look very good right now.  The good news is that Andreas Johnson does.

Johnson has 4 points in 2 games to start the tournament including a goal and two assists in this morning’s game versus Finland.  Johnson is an undersized, skilled kid, and whether he’ll be able to bring his game over to North American ice is certainly open for debate. So far in the 2013-14 World Junior’s, he’s been the Leafs prospect to watch.  Even in the pre-tournament games, Johnson was a standout.  Those of you who were able to catch the Canada-Sweden game probably noticed the problems he was causing the Canadian defense and he was rewarded with a goal in that game as well.

As far as the Leafs’ other assets are concerned, Gauthier hasn’t really had much of an impact thus far.  To my eye, his line doesn’t seem to be getting all that much icetime (which is a bit surprising since he’s been skating with team Captain, Scott Laughton) but even when he has been on the ice, he hasn’t been that noticeable one way or the other.  He’s big and skates well but the amount of time he’s had the puck on his stick has been pretty limited thus far. Given that Canada has done the vast majority of its damage thus far on the powerplay, it’s no great surprise that Gauthier’s sitting at 0G, 1A through 2 games.

I didn’t catch either of Switzerland’s games, but Fabrice Herzog has one of the 4 Swiss goals which is about in line with the expectations that I’d have for him in this tournament.  The Swiss have played Sweden and Russia so far so the mushy part of their schedule is still upcoming.

In non-World Junior news, Connor Brown and the Erie Otters play the Kitchener Rangers tonight.  It will be interesting to see how Brown makes out with both Connor McDavid and Adam Pelech overseas.

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan you would not have known it on here :)

  • maple1967leafs

    rustynail Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Its been tough in here during games

  • wendelsfist

    Bruffins Both leafs goaltenders have been one bright spot this season but I have issues with other parts of the team though.

    Spezza is out with a lower body injury; Phillips got hurt on a blocked shot.

  • Burtonboy

    rustynail sounds like a fun evening sitting back watching them get hammered again.

  • lieffan

    Way to go little AJ!

  • Burtonboy

    No Chara eh

  • mike_84

    Eric Knodel is out scoring the forwards as a Dman. yes he’s a few years older but still surprising to see

  • mike_84

    Out of the Dman i think its the 2 local boys that have the best chance of being NHL players. Finn and Percy both look like good two way players. Macwilliam could turn into a good 3rd pairing guy
