2015 NHL Draft: Mitch Marner to Toronto Maple Leafs


The Toronto Maple Leafs select Mitch Marner with the 4th overall pick.

Dale Hunter liked Mitch Marner, which explain the pick.

Marner is a pure goal scorer that has shades of a playmaker as well.


His 44 goals was behind only Dylan Strome for the OHL lead.

What scouts are saying:

"“Smallish forward with a real scoring touch…scores in multiple ways…always in the right spot to receive a pass…a good wrist shot, and he plays with a lot of grit and isn’t afraid to crash the net for chances…has the hands and creativity to go end to end with the puck…speedy and very agile…excellent foot speed and quickness, and is tough to contain when he gets going; he can beat nearly anyone on the ice with his speed…impressive hand speed and creativity…sees the ice well and makes some really good passes…is a threat on each shift…work ethic and compete level are impressive…relentless pressure on the puck.” – Future Considerations"

"“A dynamic offensive forward that backchecks hard and establishes his presence through playing smart, puck-possession hockey. A very quick skater gifted with great hands and hockey sense. Battles hard in all three zones and shows a willingness to do whatever it takes to get the puck to the back of the net; an unselfish player. Embodies the definition of a dynamic number-generating machine who makes the players around him better.” – Elite Prospects"
