NHL Draft 2012: Matt Finn - 2nd Round 35th Overall
With their second round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft the Toronto Maple Leafs selected Matt Finn from the Guelph Storm of the OHL. It is a pick that no doubt had Don Cherry sacrificing new couches for a special celebration suit because not only does Finn play in the OHL but he also has a family connection to former Leaf Carlo Colaiacovo (hopefully boneitis isn't contagious) and played a bit with Stuart Percy growing up. But the piece de resistance is that he is also from Toronto!
Finn grew up in Toronto, in the Kipling-Eglinton area, with Mats Sundin and Doug Gilmour posters in his room. He's a graduate of the Leafs' Buds Club for young fans. Bryan McCabe was his favourite player.
That should satisfy the idiots that don't understand how player acquisition works in the NHL. Wait, does that say McCabe was his favourite player? Maybe we can get him to be more specific about when he stopped being his favourite and when he started referring to him as one of the Muskoka Five.
