Marner says his big combine interview is with Leafs


"His big one’s Arizona, and mine’s Toronto."

While at the 2015 NHL Draft combine in Buffalo, the National Post's Michael Traikos caught up with Mitch Marner and Dylan Strome. In his story, Traikos quotes Marner as not only validating the Leafs interest in the young player, but also as potentially ruling out that Arizona has interest in him at third overall. Marner's connections to Leafs' GM candidate Mark Hunter and amateur scout Lindsay Hofford are no secret, but this makes things even more interesting.
