Mitch Marner, of the Toronto Maple Leafs, will join players such as Mathieu Perreault, Alex Tanguay, Zemgus Girgensons, and Nick Bjugstad.
Marner made the Maple Leafs opening night roster this season after failing to do so last year. He was the #4 overall pick in the 2015 draft and signaled he had no intentions of going back to juniors after torching the OHL for 39 goals and 77 assists, good for 116 points in only 57 games played last season.
With a True Hockey partnership, we will continue to see Marner line up with his True A6.0 SBP stick each night on the ice.
