Here's how Leafs prospects are faring at the 2016 World Juniors...

Travis Dermott (Defence) - Canada

Dermott played for Canada on Monday in a 6-1 win over Denmark and on Tuesday against Switzerland, a 3-2 Canadian shootout win. He picked up an assist -- his second of the tournament -- in Monday's win on a Lawson Crouse goal. Dermott has two points, a plus-1 rating and seven shots on goal in three games. Canada returns to action on Dec. 31 vs. Sweden.

Kasperi Kapanen (Forward) - Finland

Kapanen recorded four shots on goal but couldn't break through on the box score in Finland's 6-4 loss to Russia on Monday. He is now up to seven shots on goal in the tournament through two games, but has yet to record a point for the 1-0-0-1 Finns. Finland will take on the Czech Republic on Dec. 30 in their next game.

Mitchell Marner (Forward) - Canada

Marner played a pair of games for Canada in wins over Denmark on Monday and Switzerland on Tuesday. He recorded a goal and an assist in a 6-1 Canadian win over Denmark to bring his point total to three for the tournament. He also carries a plus-2 rating with two penalty minutes and nine shots on goal through his first three games. Marner will look to get back on the board on Dec. 31 when Canada faces off with Sweden.

William Nylander (Forward) - Sweden

Nylander was held out of action for Sweden on Monday when they defeated the United States by a 1-0 score. While reports of his recovery from a blindside hit in Sweden's tournament opener are positive, Nylander has been kept off the ice as a precaution. He could return to the tournament if medically cleared in time. Sweden will take on Denmark on Dec. 30.

Dmytro Timashov (Forward) - Sweden

Timashov continues to star for Sweden at the World Juniors. He followed up a three-point, Player of the Match performance in Sweden's tournament opener against Switzerland with the primary assist on the lone Swedish goal in a 1-0 win over the United States. He is tied for fourth in scoring at the World Juniors and is tied for Sweden's scoring lead with four points in two games. Sweden returns to action on Dec. 30.
