Meet Mitch Marner, the superstar playmaker of the Toronto Maple Leafs!
In only a few short years with his beloved Maple Leafs, Mitch Marner has racked up record-setting points and made countless plays happen for his linemates. And his OHL career is legendary. Mitch won a lot of trophies! But getting to the NHL wasn’t always a certainty for Mitch. Coming up through youth hockey he was considered small ― maybe too small to make it in the NHL. Mitch had heart and never gave up. Off the ice, he’s also shown where that heart is, starting an Invitational All Star event in support of children’s charities and community hockey.
This full colour easy-to-read biography is packed with photos and has lots of pages of hockey action comic sequences. It’s for sure a favourite read among young hockey fans!
