Marner notched 16 goals and 67 points in 59 games before the NHL halted play in March. Many thought the Maple Leafs may have overpaid when they signed Marner to a monster six-year, $65.4 million contract in September, but he's quickly laid those concerns to rest, averaging over a point per game while logging a whopping 21:33 of ice time per contest this season. At just 22 years old, Marner has yet to hit his prime, so he should only continue to improve over the next few years.
Marner picked up two power-play assists in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Lightning. It's his first multi-point outing since Feb. 7. Despite the relative lull over the last month, Marner is still putting together a strong campaign, scoring 16 goals and 67 points through 59 games.
Marner scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks. Marner received a pass from Auston Matthews, then went between his legs before sending a backhand shot past Sharks goalie Martin Jones late in the second period. The stunner accounted for Marner's 16th goal and 65th point of the season. He's added 144 shots and a plus-6 rating through 56 appearances.
Marner collected an assist and dished three hits in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Sabres. Marner had the secondary helper on Zach Hyman's third-period tally. In his last three games, Marner has a goal and two assists. The playmaking winger is up to 60 points, 123 shots and a plus-1 rating through 49 contests this year. He's on track to challenge the 80-point mark, but lost time due to an ankle injury earlier in the season will likely keep his career high of 94 points out of reach.
Marner picked up three assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Ducks. The Leafs' superstar trio of Marner, Auston Matthews and John Tavares each had at least three points in this one, and they combined for the latter's OT winner on the power play with only seven seconds left in extra time. Marner has a seven-game point streak going and has done most of his damage as a facilitator during that stretch, piling up one goal and 11 points.
