Peter Holland, A Success Story for Powerhouse Performance Hockey

THE NEW LEAF: Peter Holland
article by Kevin McGran, LeafsBeat, The Leaf Page of the Toronto Star

Turns out the Leafs are pretty high on Peter Holland, acquired from Anaheim when the team ran out of centres. The Leafs project he will be more than a “depth centre,” giving him a real chance as a top-six role.

“A young guy that’s got skill. He can read situations,” said Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. “A big guy that can move around the rink pretty effectively. In my history, when he was in Anaheim, I didn’t see that much of him other than in prospects camps. I know statistic-wise he was a pretty good OHL player and he has been in the AHL and had a taste of the NHL.

“We think he’s a young player that can come in and provide offence. What level will be determined by the situations that we present him with and how well he does. One thing we know, he’s got a big-time NHL shot.

“The areas in which has to focus on are the defensive side of it and the combative side. Night in night out he’s playing against bigger men. He’s got to develop that combative side and compete in those small areas in the defensive zone.”
