Headed into Toronto Maple Leafs development camp Jesse Blacker is on a high after helping the Owen Sound Attack capture the Ontario League championship this spring. But the Toronto native realizes he still has a lot of work to do if he hopes to one day play for the Maple Leafs.

Blacker has demonstrated he can perform under pressure in the past as part of the Windsor Spitfires OHL Championship and Memorial Cup winning team in 2009. His performance that year led the Toronto to select him late in the second round and they are happy they did so.

Adam Proteau takes a closer look at one of the Leafs prized prospects.
