The Toronto Maple Leafs used their sixth round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft to select Connor Brown from the Erie Otters of the OHL. I'm normally one of the first people to disdain the use of +/- as an individual statistic to track hockey players but Connor Brown's -72 this past season for Erie in the OHL is noteworthy for a few reasons. First off, it was the worst mark in the OHL this past season and secondly it indicates the areas in which Brown most needs to focus if he wants to make it to the NHL - his defensive play.
