Man I didnt realize that Desrocher is 6'4" and is over 200lb.  And he will fill out some.  Great news

It was rumoured during the WJHC that Bracco would be headed to the Knights, but it looks like the Memorial Cup hosts got to him first.

Now, the Leafs just need to get him signed.

As he was drafted out of the college system, we have until June 2019 to sign Bracco.

I can see them giving him a Marlies ATO towards the end of the season if the Marlies are still in it and then signing him to his ELC in the offseason slated for the 2017-18 Marlies. Keeps the contract slots open for maneuvers to maybe rake in some picks.

Edit: I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm looking at the CBA 8.6 c ii
Quote
If a Player drafted at age 18 or 19 is a bona fide college student at the time
of his selection in the Entry Draft, or becomes a bona fide college student
prior to the first June 1 following his selection in the Entry Draft, and does
not remain a bona fide college student through the graduation of his
college class, his drafting Club shall retain exclusive rights for the
negotiation of his services until the later of: (a) the fourth June 1 following
his selection in the Entry Draft, or (b) thirty (30) days after NHL Central
Registry receives notice that the Player is no longer a bona fide college
student; provided that if the Player ceases to be a bona fide college student
on or after January 1 of an academic year and the Player: (1) is in his
fourth year of college and has commenced his fourth year of NCAA
eligibility, or (2) is in his fourth year of college and is scheduled to
graduate from college at the end of his fourth year, then in the
circumstances described in (1) or (2), the Club shall retain the exclusive
right of negotiation for such Player's services through and including the
August 15 following the date on which he ceases to be a bona fide college
student. The Club need not make a Bona Fide Offer to such Player to
retain such rights.

Bracco began his Draft + 1 season with Boston College Eagles (NCAA) and then changed his mind and signed with Kitchener on Oct 28, 2015.

Not Leafs related, but this is a summary of what the Knights did today (via @charliejclarke):



They're trading picks from 2024!

If that conditional pick from 2024 comes to fruition, a boy who is 7 or 8 years old right now had the future right to draft him traded today.

Is one guy really worth 7 picks?

Kasperi Kapanen "The one left waiting."

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/kasperi-kapanen-cant-watch-maple-leafs-eagerly-awaits-nhl-chance/

Quote
The 20-year-old was part of the exciting wave of Leafs callups made after last season’s trade deadline and believes deep down that he should still be a member of the team today.

Scouts who have watched him this year tend to agree with that point of view. There’s even a strong sentiment within the Leafs organization that he’s prepared to make the jump.

“I’m a believer,” said one person on the inside.

Added a scout from another team: “I can’t find a flaw (that will keep him out of the NHL).”

Folding Kapanen and Leipsic(and Nielsen) into this group is going to be fun.

I've spent the last 5 minutes typing up potential top-9 line combinations with those two involved. I can confirm that it will be fun.

I think Nielsen is much farther from the NHL than many think.  He might be putting up great offensive numbers (mostly on the PP), but most reports of him include a "lost in the defensive zone" statement.  We will probably see Dermott or Valiev before Nielsen.  Mirtle even calls Dermott our top defense prospect:
