Knights’ Mitch Marner named CHL Player of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Mitch Marner of the London Knights is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending April 10 after scoring twice with five assists for seven points in two games with a plus-minus rating of plus-5.

Marner becomes the second straight Knight to earn the award after helping his team take a 2-0 lead in their OHL Western Conference Semi-Final series against the Kitchener Rangers.  He produced back-to-back multi-point performances including a goal and two assists in Game 1 on Friday night as part of a 6-3 victory, then scored shorthanded while adding three assists Sunday in London’s 5-3 triumph in Game 2.

The 18-year-old from Thornhill, ON, leads the OHL playoff scoring race with six goals and 13 assists for 19 points in six games.  Playing in his third career OHL season with the Knights, Marner was chosen fourth overall by the Maple Leafs in the 2015 NHL Draft and finished the regular season with 116 points in 57 games topping the century mark for the second straight season.

Also considered for the award this week was Philadelphia Flyers prospect Ivan Provorov of the Brandon Wheat Kings who scored twice with four assists for six points in three games, and Michael Joly of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles who scored five goals and one assist for six points in three games.
