Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner: Will take on penalty-killing duties

Coach Mike Babcock plans to use Marner in penalty-killing situations this season, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

This doesn't mean much from a fantasy perspective, but it does show how much trust Babcock has in Marner, who's entering his third full NHL season at the ripe age of 21 years old. The outstanding pivot should, however, see a bump in time as a result of his expanded role, and he could snatch a few shorthanded assists and goals along the way as well.
