Published August 13, 2018 at 12:06

The Toronto Maple Leafs are expecting a big year from some of their youngsters. With the addition of John Tavares to the forward group, we're expecting a high goals for average per game from the team. One of those players expected to contribute in a big way is Mitch Marner. TSN 1050 recently caught up with Marner's performance coach, Dan Noble, and it sounds like he's in exceptional shape. From MapleLeafsHotStove:"He trains at 9:30 every day and he's in there for 2-3 hours. Depending on whether we have ice, he'd be on the ice once or twice a week right now, and that will crank up as it gets into August now. I'll say this: He's been on another level this summer. Last summer, we had a great summer, too, but there was a lot of change happening coming off of your first pro season and a successful one. There were a lot of things going on. He came in this summer the most probably the most focused I've ever seen him – and driven. It's going to be exciting to see what this might translate over into. I don't know if I've ever seen him this focused and working this hard. It's been translating over into the things we want to see improved on in the gym, and hopefully that will show on the ice as well"What type of season are you expecting from Marner?
