According to reports from Leafs training camp, Tyson Barrie expects to play on the second power-play unit in 2019-20, with Morgan Rielly continuing to lead the top unit. (Jonas Siegel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

This is certainly a situation worth monitoring as Maple Leafs training camp progresses, as these comments suggest there will be little change to the Maple Leafs top unit despite adding the former Avalanche power-play quarterback this offseason. Barrie has said he expects to take over for Jake Gardiner, whose PP2 role was vacated due to his departure in free agency. Whatever shakes out, the new member of the lethal Maple Leafs attack certainly appears in line to top the career-high 59 points he posted a season ago.
