Just like Toronto Maple Leafs fans everywhere, Stuart Percy watched last month’s NHL Draft eager to see who the Leafs would take.
So when Toronto selected a pair of highly skilled defenceman in Morgan Rielly and Matt Finn in the first two rounds, Percy would have had every reason to have been bothered. After all, Percy was a Leafs 1st round pick last year.
But the 19 year-old insists he has no trouble it.
“I’m not too worried about it,” said Percy, who was captain of his Ontario Hockey League team in Mississauga, Ontario last year and is expected to be the leader on the team again this season.
“Teams are going to draft or sign a handful, if not 10 more defenceman, before I get to the system. We got a couple of great young defenceman. It’s great to have all that skill on the back end.”
“You just kind of expect it,” added the Oakville, Ontario native. “You just have to keep an open mind and enjoy the competition.”
Percy is a smooth skat...
