Observations:

 

January 2017 – The undersized, overage, swingman is having another extremely productive season for the Regina Pats. His production of over a pair of points per game is the second best in all of Major Junior hockey. In the past three years, he has accumulated 245 points in 165 regular season games, numbers only accumulated by future superstars. Brooks is doing all this without having elite skills, but through hard-work, determination and understanding of his roles. Not only does he produce, he is just as strong trying to get the puck from opponents. For the most part, he plays a professional quality game in junior, this bodes well for his career as his future will take him into the AHL where production will fall, but he should still fulfill a quality, high minute role as he advances. That said his NHL production and quality is questionable at this point, but is worth gambling on, especially with the quality of teammates he is likely to have going forward. He was one of the more mature players the Leafs laid claim to in the 2016 draft. Jason Banks

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

 

His production is duplicated by very few, but he does not really show a noticeable ‘X’ factor that backs up his numbers. For this we must be careful projecting his career path, but it does look positive on the surface, in at least a regular secondary role in the NHL.
