Leipsic finished second in points on the Toronto Marlies this year, with 24 games in hand on Kerby Rychel, who outscored him by one. The 22-year-old left winger had 18 goals, 33 assists, and 51 points in 49 games, missing time midway through the season with a concussion suffered in the winter.
The Leafs originally acquired Leipsic from the Nashville Predators in 2015, along with Olli Jokinen and a 1st round pick (traded to Philadelphia) in exchange for Mike Santorelli and Cody Franson.
