Stuart Percy (born May 18, 1993) is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman who is currently under contract as a prospect with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected 25th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Playing career[edit]

On September 21, 2011, Percy was cut from the Toronto Maple Leafs training camp and sent back to major junior due to the impending lock-out.[1] On November 22, 2011, the Maple Leafs signed Percy to a three-year, entry-level contract.[2]

Following an impressive preseason,[citation needed] Percy started the 2014–15 season on the Leafs but was returned to the Toronto Marlies after playing seven games with the Maple Leafs.[3]

At the conclusion of his entry-level contract, following the 2015–16 season, Percy was not tendered a contract as a restricted free agent, releasing him to free agency. On July 1, 2016, Percy was signed by the Pittsburgh Penguins to a one year, two-way contract worth $575,000 at the NHL level.[4]

As a junior, Percy featured in his first international tournament with Team Canada Ontario in the 2010 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, claiming a silver medal.[5] He was then selected to the U18 Canadian team to appear and help retain the title in the 2010 Ivan Hlinka Tournament[5]

Personal[edit]

Growing up, Percy was a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and had posters of former team players such as Mats Sundin, Tie Domi and Doug Gilmour lining his bedroom walls.[6] Leading up to his draft year, Percy had hoped to be selected by the Maple Leafs.

Percy is friends with fellow 2011 draft selections Matt Puempel and Ryan Strome, whom he celebrated with after being drafted.[6]

Percy is cousins with hockey players Carlo Colaiacovo and Paulo Colaiacovo. Carlo was also a first round pick of the Maple Leafs, being selected 17th overall in 2001.
