Korbinian Holzer(5) Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs‘ 4th round pick in the 2006 draft (#111 overall) 3rd North American year, German-born defenseman Korbinian Holzer(5) signed a 1-way contract to make the jump to the big league.

Apparently they liked what they saw of him last year, although his only two NHL games came in his rookie year.

He put up AHL career highs in assists and points with Toronto Marlies. Although he pocketed only one goal, he had 19 assists for 20 points and was a +7 plus/minus on a team that made it all the way to the Calder Cup Finals. In 2010/2011 he was a +10.

As a 19-year old he played three seasons in the German Pro Hockey League (DEL) for DEG Metro Stars but finally came over on a two-year entry level deal.

Now at 24-years old the big 6’3″ 206 lbs. d-man is looking to step it up.
