    Pretty impressive way to take over the goal scoring lead and finish off the last game of the regular season

    Wow....make it number 4....when this kid goes on one of these tears, hes impossible to stop....

    its too bad he hit a rough stretch the past 10 or so games, or he would have been a lock to hit 60+ goals....

    Bad legs and lazy. So much goal scoring upside too hard to pass up.

    Leave him alone with the goalie and you already know it's going in. Could be taking feeds from RNH next year at the WJC.

    his skating has gotten much much better....its still not top end, but there are a handful of top players in the NHL who has the same issues in juniors....

    hell have a long future in the NHL and i think hell be a 30+ goal scorer....too much skill not too....

    :skeptic: didn't he score like 5 in a period this year or something equally outrageous?

    He's still painfully lazy. He's just as likely to be a 30 goal guy in the NHL as he is to not play in the league at all. Either is possible, I imagine he's the best pure sniper in the CHL. His legs are still pretty bad, his edges are actually okay, he is getting better. He's got time, but it's his drive that will determine what he turns into.

    Not saying he is a bad player, the question I replied to asked why he dropped to the 2nd round.

    yeah i do agree that his skating is not the greatest....could you imagine if he was a great skater? he would have been a guarantee top 10 pick....

    I dont live in that area, so i dont see him play live, but from what ive heard, hes been improving across the board....even his compete level seems to be on a much higher level....

    If you watch his interviews right after getting drafted, one thing that stood out to me was his enthusiasm....he seemed like he genuinely loved to play hockey....im hoping that him getting older combined with this love for the game, will translate into a player who gives 100% every game and every shift....if that ever occurs, hes one scary player

    nvm. It only recorded the last half of the third period. :( Hopefully someone else uploads video of this.

    They showed a highlight video of them at the end. One nice snipe, but the others were more being in the right place at the right time and a bit of luck.

    Lol knowing the title was up for grabs made him really get his snipe on. I think this also means that he might have been half-assing it for parts of the season.

    Skating isn't a big deal. Just hopefully he's committed to making it better because there are tons of guys (Molson, Boyle, Heatley) who aren't great skaters and weren't really good in the past but they put time in and now they get around and are average.


    Congrats to Tyler! Hopefully he is the 40 goal scorer the Kings need in the future! I've only seen online clips of him but if he works on his skating and conditioning then he will be a beast. His shot is spectacular.

    Was at the game, he seemed to have a knack for finding open space on the ice and when he got the puck you could almost guarantee a shot. He was definitely feeling it tonight as he ended up with 4.

    Kings are slow though skating-wise, should help. They once had a guy who couldn't skate on that team as well. Not saying he'll bu Lucky Luke though.

    I remember a London Knight that everyone was getting down on because of his skating... Corey Perry anyone? Seems to have survived the transition.

    Not the greatest skater but I wouldn't say he is terrible. Likes to float around a bit too much but thats not out of character for alot of junior aged scorers

    Perry's also 6'3.

    I think we'll get a good indication of how Toffoli can develop after he comes into his 19 year old season. How he improved over the off-season. If it's encouraging, I think he could be a real good NHL sniper in time.

    Lots of work to do, and I heard trainers are easily aggravated by his laziness in the gym.
