The freshman D'Amigo was one of nine Leafs' prospects who played NCAA hockey over the past season. Below are their basic statistics and NHL Equivalencies in 2009-10. Brayden Irwin and Simon Gysbers were undrafted but signed on with the Leafs organization and joined the pro ranks late in the season, while Chris Peluso was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a 6th round pick in 2010.
Statistics for '10 Leafs NCAA prospects, click to view at full-size:Tyler Ruegsegger wrapped up his college career by rebounding from something of a down year, mainly piling up more assists to produce what projects to 34 NHL points (per 82 games). He also greatly increased his point-production outside of the Power-Play, too (Ruegsegger scored just 9 points in Even-Strength/Short-Handed situations throughout the 2008-09 season; this past year he scored 24). Next year he will turn pro and the Leafs have until August 15 to sign him, and Chris Peluso too, if they wish to retain their rights.
Jimmy Hayes stepped up his production in his sophomore season and helped the Boston College Eagles win the NCAA championship.
Matt Frattin returned from suspension in mid-season and played fairly well, showing some improvement. It is apparent that he got some more Power-Play minutes, as he scored just 1 point less than he did in 2008-09 when he'd played 42 games, and he recorded 20 shots on the PP this year while he'd taken 22 during the previous season. Frattin took one less shot in total than he did last season despite playing in 18 fewer games. This wasn't just due to increased PP time; he took 2.5 shots per game at Even-Strength in 2009-10, up from the 1.5 taken the year before.
You can find the number of PP and PK shots for Frattin and his teammates at North Dakota's statistics page. Various college hockey team sites include similar breakdowns and they are mostly the source for the statistics posted in the Supplemental Stats table below. Included are shots, power-play scoring, and faceoff data for the college boys. Faceoff stats were unavailable for Irwin and D'Amigo and I had to go through their game logs to count up their power-play assists, a relatively easy task as USCHO.com gives you the manpower situation for each of their goals and assists right in the game logs. D'Amigo's game-by-game also shows the type of penalties he got, but Irwin's doesn't. Anyway, the assortment of roughing, elbowing, boarding, and unsportsmanlike penalties taken by D'Amigo seem indicative of a chippy player.
