2018 Fantasy Outlook
Pity poor Josh -- the guy has gotten a bit of a bum steer in Toronto. He has spent the last two seasons all but exiled in former Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello's basement; at least that's how it seemed. Leivo stayed with the big squad despite being a healthy scratch for 66 games. Yes, 66. The guy can score. It remains to be seen if coach Mike Babcock will give him a gig in the bottom six this season. If so, Leivo has 15 goals in his stick for sure. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2014
2012
2011
Leivo will play a big role with the AHL Marlies in 2014-15, but no matter how much twine twitches at his touch, it'll never translate into scoring at the NHL level. Keeper leaguers need not apply.
Leivo just continues to overachieve. He built on his explosive playoff run with the OHL's Sudbury Wolves in 2010-11 with a breakout campaign in 2011-12. He pumped in 42 more points than he did in 2010-11 finishing with 72 in 66 games. He doesn't have the cache of the higher rated Leafs' prospects, but the guy has shown he can score no matter where he goes. Watch from afar and hope his development curve continues at the current pace.
Leivo was the Leafs’ third-round pick in 2011. He had a middling at best regular season with the Sudbury Wolves in his draft year and was left off of Central Scouting’s draft list. Boy, did they whiff on him. Leivo flat-out exploded when the going got tough in the playoffs, leading his team to a first-round ouster of the East Division champs, the Ottawa 67s. He finished the postseason with an incredible six goals, seven assists, plus-6 and four PIMs in just eight games. He needs to work on his skating but the future looks bright for this Eric Fehr-like opportunistic power forward if he can build on his current development curve.
