Future Watch: Travis Dermott Rookie Hockey Cards, Maple Leafs

Future Watch: Travis Dermott Rookie Hockey Cards, Maple LeafsFuture Watch: Travis Dermott Rookie Hockey Cards, Maple LeafsTravis Dermott was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs with the 34th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. At that time, he wasn’t garnering a ton of attention because of his 5-11, 196-pound frame.

He started out his career with the Erie Otters in 2013. Dermott was just warming up because the Canadian blueliner put up seasons of 45 points in 61 games and 43 points in 51 games in the next two campaigns. He also racked up 34 points in 43 playoff games. Part of the problem was the fact that his teammates Connor McDavid (Oilers), Andre Burakovsky (Capitals), Alex DeBrincat (Blackhawks), and Dylan Strome (Blackhawks) garnered most of the attention and Dermott was stuck in their shadows.

In 2016-17, Dermott started playing for the Toronto Marlies in the AHL. He had 24 points in 59 games showing off his offensive abilities in the regular and postseason.

Last season he played with the Marlies and the Leafs. He had 13 points in 37 games for the Maple Leafs and 18 points in 28 games for the Marlies. He did manage to play in seven playoff games for Toronto and when their season was done, he caught on with the Marlies where he had four points in 14 games and an eventual Calder Cup Championship. That was a huge season of development for him.

Collectors can find rookie cards of him in 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey, 2018-19 Black Diamond and Artifacts to name a few.

Dermott is into his second year with the Leafs. He’s been very steady for them. In his first 28 games, he recorded two goals and six helpers. At 21, playing for a demanding coach like Mike Babcock, he’s ahead of schedule.

Here’s a look at his first NHL goal with his dad in attendance:

There’s still more offense that will come out down the road for him. Collect him now and then just wait for it.
