It was a scary sight at practice yesterday.
After losing both Auston Matthews and Ilya Mikheyev for the start of the season, forward Mitch Marner got tripped up by Wayne Simmonds and left practice with an injury.
There was no mention of his injury after practice however it looks like his status for tonight has been revealed.
Finally some good news for the Leafs!
Marner hit the ice with his teammates for practice which is a good indication that he'll be playing tonight for the team's season opener against the Montreal Canadiens.
Mitch Marner is on the ice for the Leafs optional morning skate. A positive sign toward him playing tonight.
