Coming in at #7: Adam Brooks - "BROOKSIE"
Jan. 31st 2017
Overlooked twice in the NHL Draft, Brooks made it a point to be noticed last year by absolutely dominating the WHL. Winning the scoring title with 120PTS In 72 games and finally hearing his name called by a NHL club. Our club. Our Buds. Our Maple Leafs.
As the Maple Leafs took the podium in the 4th round they announced his name with the 92nd overall pick in 2016. Vindication.
Brooks, then one of the few players who could join the AHL fresh out of the draft due to being overlooked twice and now a 5'10 175lb 20 year old, joined the Toronto Marlies during their pre-season. Size has always been a knock on this kid but in the spirit of Patrick Kane, fans in the know, know to not worry.
As the Maple Leafs begun to shape their NHL roster Uncle Lou started sending down an abundance of veterans to the AHL: Greening, Laich, Clune and Michalek, all taking roster spots from guys like Brooks.
A few days later it was announced that Adam Brooks would be rejoining the Regina Pats of the WHL as an overager. Look out WHL.
As an overager Brooks has been expected to match if not succeed his WHL scoring title winner numbers from last year and he has done just that thus far. AND MORE.
In 40 games at the time of this writing, he has posted 28 goals and 56 assists for 84 points. This is putting him on pace for an absolutely insane 151 points in 72 games. Yes Leafs fans, there is even more scoring to come for the club.
No down side here, just more depth. And imagine, this guy is coming in at number 7. Imagine the next six players we're going to feature.
Expect Brooks to make the jump to the Toronto Marlies next season.
