Mitch Marner potted 94pts this year, 26 goals and 68 assists. He did this at just 21 years of age (he just turned 22 on May 5th), and that makes the accomplishment even more impressive.
The last person to hit the 90pt plateau while donning a Leafs jersey was Mats Sundin. He had 41 goals, 53 assists, for 94pts in the 1996-97 season and was 25 years old at the time.
That season ended on April 12th, 1997.
It was a season that saw the Buds finish with a record of 30-44-8, good for 23rd overall in a 26 team league.
Other prominent names on the team were Doug Gilmour, Wendel Clark, Larry Murphy, and Felix Potvin, to name a few, so young Mats had some help in gaining those points as well, not unlike Mitch this year.
That, again, was the 1996-97 NHL season. It ended up April 12th, 1997.
23 days after the end of that regular season, in a hospital in Markham Ontario (I presume, but it doesn’t really matter), Bonnie Marner gave birth to Mitch Marner.
So, in short, Mitch Marner just did something that no other player has done in his lifetime….. scored over 90pts in a regular season.
I wonder how shocked he must be when he sees the fans of this team so eager to throw that away for a few picks because he wants to be paid fairly?
Pay him!! Play him!! And shut the hell up about it!! 🙂
