Guess who's stealing the spotlight in the OHL? None other than Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Easton Cowan with his electric performance.

In a thrilling showdown at the Oshawa Generals on Sunday, Cowan showcased his skill with a breakaway goal in overtime, securing a thrilling 4-3 victory for the London Knights.

Yet that's not all the Knights didn't just erase a 3-0 deficit. They did it in style, rallying with three goals in the third period to keep their winning streak alive. And Cowan's game- winning goal didn't just seal the deal for London; it also extended their team point streak to an impressive 23 games.


Cowan's stats are just as impressive. With a mind-blowing 42 points (including 16 goals) in his 21-game point streak, he's making a serious mark in the Ontario Hockey League. And with 70 points (25 goals) in 40 games, he's proving himself as a force to be reckoned with.

Cowan's 21-game point streak ties him with Maple Leafs superstar Mitch Marner, a player he idolized as a kid, for the third-longest streak in Knights history.


Selected by the Leafs in the first round of last year's NHL Draft at 28th overall, Cowan is living up to the hype and then some. And while Canada's team didn't quite make it to the podium at this year's World Junior Championship, Cowan's performance is turning heads and raising expectations for his future in the NHL. Watch out, hockey world Easton Cowan is on the rise, and Maple Leafs fans should be ecstatic about his prospect.
