Frederik Gauthier was forced to leave Sunday's rookie tournament game against Ottawa in the second period due to an upper-body injury.

However, it sounds like it was for precautionary reasons. "I don't think it's anything too serious," coach Gord Dineen said. "This time of year you want to be cautious (so) we pulled him from the game." Gauthier is expected to play in Rimouski of the QMJHL this campaign.

Frederik Gauthier feels physically ready to make the jump to the NHL next season.

"Yeah, I feel like I'm ready," said the Leafs' first-round pick in the 2013 draft. "I want to make the Leafs next season. That's the goal. I don't know if they have four centermen in place or not, but I'm going to go there and try to make the team and not think about it and see what happens." He just recently turned 19 years of age, so he isn't eligible to play in the AHL next year. Gauthier will either play for Toronto or for his QMJHL squad in Rimouski. He'll try to crack of the Leafs' roster out of training camp, but don't be surprised if he ends up playing another year of junior hockey.

Frederik Gauthier will show the Leafs brass what he has at the team's prospect and rookie camps, but he figures he will be returning to junior hockey next season.

Toronto's prospect camp occurs in a couple of weeks and the team's rookies will reconvene for another camp in September. Gauthier is projected to be a two-way center in the NHL and although he isn't known as being physical, he doesn't shy away from the rough stuff according to GM Dave Nonis. At 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, he could become an opposing checker with the Leafs in the future.

The Maple Leafs selected Frederik Gauthier with the 21st overall pick of the 2013 amateur entry draft.

Gauthier is a very solid two-way player, who uses his well-developed hockey sense to make plays at both ends of the ice. His mature game will translate well in the NHL, though he isn’t viewed as a game-changing prospect. Gauthier showed some offensive ability this year, scoring 22 goals and registering 60 points in 62 games in his first season with Rimouski. However, it is his defensive play that is his ticket to the NHL. He’s strong in the faceoff circle and is very effective on the penalty kill. Though he doesn’t use his 6’3" frame to physically intimidate his opponents, he understands how to use his body in the cycle game and in shielding defenders from the puck. With some more development, he projects as a prototypical second or third-line player who could be used against an opposing team’s top line. The Maple Leafs sure could use this type of player but will likely have to wait a year or two before he can contribute.
