Josh Leivo is glad that he's still a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
With the Vegas expansion draft, Leivo wasn't sure if he was going to be on his way out of Toronto, but the Leafs decided to protect him. "Young guys are fighting for spots, but I feel it’s like that every year here," Leivo said. "As you get older, you realize what’s at stake and you want to make the most of the chance. We have a group who built a lot of chemistry last year. Even when I wasn’t playing, they were still great to me and when I got in, I felt like I hadn’t missed a game. Hopefully this season is even better. They knew I did well last year and I think Mike (Babcock) was excited to give me another shot." The 24-year-old put up 10 points in just 13 games last season.

Josh Leivo has put up 10 points in 13 games this season.

Despite the fact that he's producing points, he still can't get into the lineup regularly. "We don’t have enough penalty killers, so he gets hosed," head coach Mike Babcock said. "I talk to him a lot about that. What I like about him is he brings it every day, he has a positive attitude and he has not let the adversity wear him down and feel sorry for himself."
