Top Leafs Players Outside the NHL: #11-#15

Good news! We’ve already profiled Kalle Kossila, Kevin Gravel, and Mikko Salomaki, so there’s no risk of you ever having to endure that again. In fact, the rest of the list is much more of an interesting balance between prospects and usable NHLers, hopefully providing a bit of context to where we see those prospects meshing ability wise with the callups at this point.
#15 Joseph Duszak
Duszak is showing signs of being a solid found wallet, after the Leafs signed him as a free agent from Meryhurst University at the end of the 2018-19 season. While getting his feet wet in pro hockey for the Growlers, Duszak exceeded a point per game pace, and when promoted to the Marlies he kept the offense going picking up 18 points in 23 games. Not bad for a defenseman.
Duszak is a bit undersized and maybe that’s going to make his journey to the NHL a bit more of a challenge, but like Jesper Lindgren, the fact that he’s got a right handed shot, he’s going to get his opportunities.
