Leafs Select Promising Centre Greg McKegg In Third Round

June 26th, 2010 No Comments

The Toronto Maple Leafs have selected highly-touted centre Greg McKegg with their third round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

McKegg, who stands 6’0 and weighs in at 185 pounds, brings a ton of speed to the Leafs lineup and is very versatile as he is able to play both centre and wing.

The native of St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, is known as a goal scorer who uses his speed to avoid defenders. He is a very crisp/quick skater with a tremendous first stride and a decent hockey IQ.

Through 67 games, McKegg scored 37 goals and added 48 assists for a total of 85 points with the OHL’s Erie Otters.

His 85 points were good enough for 11th overall in regular season scoring amongst OHL players, while his 37 goals ranked him 16th overall.

McKegg has watched his stock rise over the past month or so and, based on his numbers, it appears as if the Leafs got themselves a really talented prospect.
