Fresh profile on Baby Barnaby: https://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/2018/06/25/maple-leaf-prospects-get-set-to-hit-the-ice.html

He's an undrafted 20 year old centre and was the leading scorer for Pembroke (Sheldon Keefe's previous stop before coaching the Greyhounds). Very, very lanky at the moment.

Specifically to your question, Mr. Leaf:
Quote
Hes by no means the same kind of player as his father, [coach] McTavish said of the elder Barnaby, who was one of the NHLs top fighters during his career, who amassed 2,562 penalty minutes in a career that spanned 1992-2007.

But he has grit, and the thing he has to do is grow into his body. But I think right now, hes got high-end talent on offence. And the past two seasons, he learned and improved on the defensive side of things.

Seems like a Mason Marchment type of project: NHL family, has skills and tall build that needs to put on strength.

Considering our lack of depth at C, I wouldn't be surprised if they offered him an AHL contract and he split time between Newfoundland and the Marlies

Thank-you herman!  Much appreciated!  ;D

https://mapleleafshotstove.com/2018/06/27/rasmus-sandin-and-mac-hollowell-a-qa-with-former-soo-greyhounds-coach-drew-bannister/

MLHS had a chat with Drew Bannister to pick the coach's brain on a couple of our recent draftees.

I had completely forgotten that Hollowell suffered a broken fibula last year during the first scrimmage as an invite to our development camp (at which fellow draftee Sean Durzi was also a participant*). The Leafs removed scrimmages from the program this year.

* Another interesting name on that 2017 list: Linus Nyman, who went undrafted (again) this year.

WHY'D THEY TRICK ME IN CHEBY'S PROFILE ARTICLE???
Quote
Chebykin described the on-ice sessions as much different from what he was accustomed to at home. This year, General Manager Kyle Dubas has confirmed that the camp will do away with the scrimmage portion of the camp and focus on skill sessions on the ice as well as the nutrition, training, lifestyle and media training off the ice.

BAH.

Chris Van Os-Shaw, in case you aren't familiar with him yet, was briefly highlighted by Wheeler here: https://theathletic.com/409387/2018/06/26/theres-no-easy-part-humboldt-broncos-alum-chris-van-os-shaw-brings-heavy-heart-to-leafs-camp/

Rodrigo Abols was a Canucks 2016 7th rd draft pick (overager) and one of two Latvians in the camp (Dzierkals). He's since fallen off the Canuck's reserve list. Cool part is, the Canucks spent a pick on him even though it was already the 7th round and he was 20 at the time and could've just signed him a month later (if they wanted to use a contract slot).

He's the same age and size as Pierre Engvall, with a wee bit more physicality to his game.

The Leafs brought in four Greyhounds by design not only because they like what they have in Sandin and Hollowell and want them to feel as comfortable as possible, but because the Greyhounds develop the kinds of smart, heady players the Leafs covet.

Coming to camp and not knowing anyone, youre nervous. When you see other guys that you played with last year it helps you out a lot. Mac was one of our better defencemen this year. Hes a great guy off the ice, hes always doing everything for the guys, hes always there for you, hes giving 110 per cent. I was thrilled for him, Howdeshell said. Macs smart, his head is always up, hes always making the next play. He always knows whats coming, hes smooth, hes got a nice shot, hes got nice hands, his hockey sense is one of the best that Ive personally seen in a while also.

In a lot of ways, Hollowell and Sandin are described in almost mirrored ways to one another. Hollowell laughs about how similar they are and the way the Greyhounds have developed likeminded players across the lineup, with a foundation that Dubas established. It was no surprise when the Greyhounds selected forward Roman Pucek, also in Leafs development camp this week, in Thursdays CHL import draft.

One "cool" kid:  Rasmus Sandin making the most of his time here (@hdevcamp)...



Quote
Arriving to Torontos development camp just days after the draft concluded, Sandin has strived all week to follow the wisdom of his fellow first-round draftees.

Its an exciting time thats come now, Sandin said after Fridays practice. Coming to Toronto is a cool experience, seeing all the guys and the management and just to see how everything works. Its a little different from playing in the OHL. Its one step closer to the best league in the world.

The Leafs have options on where he plays:
Quote
Sandin could return to the OHLs Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, where he put together a successful freshman campaign last season (45 points in 51 games), or Sandin could head home to re-join Rogle BK of the Swedish Hockey League and honour the final year of his SHL contract.

No stranger to the language barrier:
Quote
Coming to North America was easier for Sandin than some of his countrymen, at least as far as language is concerned. Sandin abandoned studying Spanish and German in school to take up English, and made a point of honing his skills further last season in the Soo.

Improving or honing the finer points:
Quote
Those smaller details, those crossover moves and how youre supposed to use your stick a little bit more. Just overall pretty much everything [has been good] but especially those smaller things, he said. Weve worked on our skating a bit, and those step back moves. Its just very professional overall. We learned some smaller [things] but also some bigger details of the game.

Subban may not be as skilled as his big bro PK, but he skates just like him.
