[Trade] Leafs acquire Brandon Kozun from Kings

Recommended Posts

The Maple Leafs have acquired Manchester Monarchs right-winger Brandon Kozun from the Los Angeles Kings. The 23-year-old Los Angeles native was drafted in the sixth round of the 2009 draft.

The 5’8, 180-pound Kozun has been a regular AHL points contributor but has yet to play an NHL game. He has amassed 179 points in 264 AHL games. Some offensive firepower for the Marlies here, from the looks of things, as Kozun is from all reports a skilled little winger but lacking the size and speed to crack an NHL roster.

You may remember Kozun from the silver-medal winning 2010 World Junior Canadian team, when he posted 7 points in 6 games. He was eligible to play for either Team USA or Team Canada.

No word on what’s going back yet.

The Forecaster’s scouting report:

Assets: Has tremendous offensive instincts. Knows where to place himself in order to score goals. Is also very creative at setting up his linemates. Puts up big numbers at lower levels.

Flaws: Is woefully undersized for the National Hockey League level. Needs to get physically stronger to be able to better compete against bigger defenders. His skating may also be an issue.

Career Potential: Undersized depth scoring winger with a little upside.

Have heard the Kings will receive a player, not a pick, for Kozun. News likely to come fairly soon...

Confirming Leafs acquire Brandon Kozun from the Kings for Andrew Crescenzi.
