Leafs prospect Mitch Marner scored a goal on Friday night for the London Knights of the OHL that was absolutely incredible. You might want to check this out, especially if you’re a long suffering fan of the NHL franchise in Toronto. It’ll get you out of your seat and have you dancing in dark intersections late at night:
The good news keeps coming for Maple Leafs fans. First Brendan Shanahan and Lou Lamiorello get the Leafs out from under Dion Phaneuf’s contract, and now they see one of their top prospects make the Niagara Ice Dogs look silly. And that includes Alex Nedeljkovic, Ice Dogs and Team USA goalie from the WJC … so we’re talking top shelf competition. So go ahead, Leafs fans. Get excited. You’re more than entitled after that goal.

You heard it here first. I predict the NHL calder trophy winner for the 2016/2017 season will be Mitch Marner.

Mitch Marner is a 9 foot tall beast man who showers in vodka and feeds his baby shrimp scampi. pic.twitter.com/v46JkZY1Jf

And then somebody had to spoil the fun (that’s if you call showering in vodka and feeding shrimp scampi to babies “fun”):
(The most fun thing watching Mitch Marner highlights is working out how Toronto media are going to rip him when he has a few quiet games).

Pipe down, reality. There’s plenty of time for you.
