Leafs trade down in first round, but still get slick Swedish defender

by Adam Proteau Proteautype / MapleLeafs.com

The Maple Leafs had the 25th overall pick in the 2018 NHL draft, but in his first draft as team GM, Kyle Dubas traded the pick to St. Louis to move down four places and pick up a third-round pick (76th overall) in the process. And with the 29th overall selection, Toronto came away with Swedish-born defenceman Rasmus Sandin.

The 18-year-old native of Uppsala, Sweden, spent this past season in the Ontario League with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyounds - the same franchise Dubas cut his teeth with as a young executive - and racked up 12 goals and 45 points in 51 games. Those statistics put him first in points among OHL blueliners, third among D-men under 18 years of age, and ninth among blueliners under age 19. And he was thrilled to join one of the game's most storied franchises.

Leafs' Draft Approach Won't Change Under Dubas

by Adam Proteau Proteautype / MapleLeafs.com

As the Maple Leafs prepare for the 2018 NHL draft - hosted this year by the Dallas Stars June 22-23 - their approach remains the same: when it's Toronto's turn to select a player, the franchise's focus won't be on addressing a particular position, but rather, taking the most talented individual available. That was the philosophy of new Buds GM Kyle Dubas before team president Brendan Shanahan promoted him to the role in May, and nothing that's transpired since has caused Dubas to alter his philosophy.
