To date, he has scored 31 goals and added 47 assists. His ability to find the back of the net and set up his teammates makes him a key player to watch in tonight’s game.

Mitch Marner Is Not Far Behind in Third Place in Maple Leafs Scoring

While Marner is not the goal-producer his teammates are, he’s an extraordaire playmaker. With his next assist, he will hit the 50 mark on the season. He’s been instrumental in setting up scoring opportunities for his teammates – and he has a special chemistry with Matthews. However, Marner can also score and now has put up 23 goals of his own for a total of 72 points in 56 games. He’s on track for 100 points. Can he make it?
