Toronto Maple Leafs top prospect Easton Cowan is proving the doubters wrong. His play this season indicate that he's a lock to make the big club next season.

The 2023 first-round pick Easton Cowan is tearing up the Ontario Hockey League London Knights, especially in the championship round.

It's a bit doomy and gloomy in Leaf land these days.

But, hey, at least Easton Cowan is coming down the pike.

#LeafsForever  prospect Easton Cowan with a primary assist on the powerplay. He now has a multi-point game in 5 straight and 7 of the last 8 games. He has 7 goals and 18 points in that span.

He's up to 26 points in 16 playoff games, one off the OHL lead.

Easton Cowan with 4 pts tonight as Knights come back up from down 6-2. He is the real deal.

Last week, he snagged the OHL Player of the Week title after scoring 8 points in just 2 games for the Knights in the OHL Finals. He's been dominating all season, setting personal records left and right. With 34 goals and 96 points
in 54 games, he's been everything London has hoped for. There's also the 42 game point streak he had, and he even broke Connor McDavid's OHL short-handed goal record with seven goals.

Now, I know it's early days in his career, but the comparisons to Mitch Marner are there. They've both been beasts for the Knights, especially in the playoffs. Yet Cowan seems to have that extra speed and grit, while Marner's all about finesse and strategy.

Cowan's the kind of player the Leafs need and can use today. Reliable in every situation, especially when the pressure's on. With the Knights leading 3-0 against the Oshawa Generals, it's looking like Cowan is on track snatch that OHL championship and advance to the Memorial Cup.
