Leafs need to be patient with Tyler Biggs | 06/06/2014 8:47 AM
NewsTyler Biggs treated his first pro season as a learning experience.
Impact"The whole year was an experience for me, learning how how to become a professional, learning how to handle certain situations, handle adversity," he said. "I saw a lot of it this year, sometimes with injuries, sometimes not being in the lineup when you wanted to be." The 6-foot-3, 224-pound winger battled shoulder injuries in 2013-14 and contributed just nine points in 57 games with the Marlies in the AHL. Biggs was selected with the 22nd pick in the 2011 draft and if he makes the NHL then it will probably be as a bottom-six skater.

Tyler Biggs will look up to David Clarkson | 07/10/2013 11:38 AM
NewsTyler Biggs plans to emulate David Clarkson the best he can now that the ex-Devil is with the Leafs.
ImpactThe Leafs' top pick from the 2011 draft has top-six upside and now an in-organization role model to look up to. "He's a great power forward, a right winger, a guy that physically dominated and played with grit," Biggs said of Clarkson. "You look at him his past couple of years, he's really put the numbers up as well. To be well-rounded like that is definitely a goal." It will help that the Marlies' AHL coach is Steve Spott, who coached Clarkson in junior. The feisty Biggs had 26 goals, 53 points and 55 penalty minutes last season.
