Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner is on his way back

Published March 30, 2024 at 10:56

Mitch Marner, a star player for the Toronto Maple Leafs, was added to the Long Term Injury Reserve earlier today.

He's been injured since March 7th, dealing with a high-ankle sprain.

Marner retroactively placed on the LTIR by the Maple Leafs

In breaking news, we learned that the Leafs placed Mitch Marner on the LTIR, retroactive to March 7th, the date he got injured.

This means that he'll be eligible to play a game next week, as players who are placed on the LTIR must miss at least 10 games and 24 days.

"The Maple Leafs have placed F Mitch Marner on LTI retroactive to March 7 for roster management purposes, and recalled D Marshall Rifai from the

"Cap move. Marner eligible to come off tomorrow and play this week"

The Maple Leafs have a tough schedule this week and Marner could play a key role in those crucial games against the Florida Panthers and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

With the Bruins and the Panthers already qualified for the playoffs, and the Bolts only four points away from the 3rd rank in the division, the pressure will be on Sheldon Keefe's men.

With only 10 games left, it'll be fundamental for Toronto to win. Considering that seven of these games are against teams in their own division, and how tight the playoff race is, leaving all on the ice isn't an option anymore.
