Leafs Prospect Update: 4.23.2015

by Chris Lund / Toronto Maple Leafs


Let's take a look around the hockey world and see how Leafs prospects are faring in their playoff campaigns...

Frederik Gauthier - Rimouski Océanic: Gauthier's Océanic punched their ticket to the third round of the Quebec League playoffs with a five game series win over the Gatineau Olympiques. He sits third on his team in points with 11 in nine games and is a plus-seven in that span. He was held pointless in game four against Gatineau — it was the first time he didn't record a point this playoffs.

Carter Verhaeghe - Niagara IceDogs: Verhaeghe's IceDogs were eliminated in six games by the Oshawa Generals in the OHL playoffs. The Niagara captain recorded a pair of goals in game five and finished his playoff campaign with six goals and 14 points in 11 playoff games. He finished the playoffs second in Niagara scoring.

Dakota Joshua - Sioux Falls Stampede: Joshua finished the Stampede's first round series in a three-way tie for their scoring lead with six points in five games as they defeated the Sioux City Musketeers. He recorded the game-winning goal in game five and was a plus-3 with 18 penalty minutes over the course of the series. Sioux Falls will now take on the Tri-City Storm.

Toronto Marlies: The Toronto Marlies clinched a playoff spot last Friday and swept their three weekend games with wins at Milwaukee, Rockford and Chicago respectively. The Marlies finished their season on a seven-game winning streak and will now face the Grand Rapids Griffins, AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings, in the first round of the AHL playoffs. Game one will take place at 3:00 p.m. on April 25 at Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto.

Orlando Solar Bears: The Solar Bears trail the Florida Everblades by a 2-1 margin in their ECHL playoff series. Orlando earned a 5-2 win in game three thanks to a 48 save performance from Leafs prospect Garret Sparks. The clubs will face off for game four on April 23 in Orlando.
