Mitch Marner (ankle) to miss at least four weeks

by Brendan Ballantyne | Maple Leafs Correspondent | Tue, Nov 12th 8:28pm EST

An MRI on Sunday revealed that Mitch Marner sustained a high ankle sprain and will be out of action for at least four weeks. The winger was seen on Tuesday with a walking boot on his right leg. (TSN)

Fantasy Impact:

Marner made comments on his injury at Maple Leafs practice on Tuesday, stating that “when I fell, I felt a snap in my ankle. I was kind of expecting when I looked back for my ankle to kind of be facing the wrong direction.” Given that description, it certainly appears fortunate that the injury wasn't worse, but this is still a big loss for the Maple Leafs and fantasy owners alike. Marner was cruising prior to going down, averaging a point-per-game through 18 contests (four goals, 14 assists) and averaging the second-most ice-time among Toronto forwards (19:40). Kasperi Kapanen was seen skating in Marner's place in practice and Nic Petan was recalled from the AHL Marlies to fill out the active roster.
