Marner exploded with two goals and three assists in Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Senators. Holy sizzle. This was Marner's first multi-point game since December 28. And he now has seven goals and four assists in his last 10 games. Marner was utterly dialled in Saturday night and showed why keeper owners are so very high on him.
Marner scored the Leafs' only goal in a 4-1 loss to the Bruins on Saturday night. Marner has started to pick up the pace and now has five points in his last seven games. Coach Mike Babcock has juggled the lines around a bit and Marner has recently seen time with a struggling Nazem Kadri. Marner's 36 points (54 games) project to a mid-50s finish unless he and Kadri develop some chemistry.
Marner, who scored a power-play goal Saturday, says he enjoys his current fourth-line role, reports the Toronto Sun. "I'm a real big fan of playing with (bruiser) Matt Martin," said Marner. "He opens up a lot of ice and space for me." Marner was bumped down to the fourth line because he lost his check and got bumped off pucks too much on the upper lines. Strong performances on the fourth should push him right back up the lineup, as long as the lesson was learned.
Marner scored a goal and dished out two helpers in Thursday's 7-4 win over Arizona. One of Marner's assists came on his team's only power-play attempt, and it took him just eight seconds of power-play ice time to produce that point. During his active four-game point streak, the 20-year-old stud has racked up three goals, six assists and 18 shots.
Marner scored a goal and added three assists (two on the power play) during Tuesday's 8-1 win over Carolina. The offensive outburst was the first four-point showing of Marner's career, and he now has three goals and 21 assists through 35 games this season. While that's now a respectable total, and he's recorded an impressive eight multi-point showings for the campaign, fantasy owners were probably hoping for better production from the sophomore. Marner owns oodles of offensive upside and continued patience will likely pay off over the coming months.
