Toronto Maple Leafs fans will get a real good look at Luca Caputi real quick because he is going to get thrown right into the mix, which means he'll get a test drive at the NHL level.

He's got a number of games in the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and he also has the availability, of course, to play with the Toronto Marlies. He has 23 goals already this season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL, and in his final year of junior hockey with Niagara he scored better than 50 goals.

Luca Caputi does have some upside. Some describe him as a power forward, and he maybe he has to work on his skating a little bit. In doing a run about scouts and executives around the National Hockey League, some describe him as a very good prospect, and some say that he has some questions. But he'll get thrown into the mix immediately.
