Mitch Marner is the star of the week (again). 7 goals, 2 hat tricks, 4 assists in 3 games is a fantastic weekend, and he's ours Leafs fans! ALL OURS! timashov in Quebec also had a good weekend, putting up 5 points in one game. Not to be out done, Tony Cameranesi had 4 points in a game on Saturday night in the NCAA, and over in Europe Andreas Johnson had a hat trick himself. Lots of big point nights for our boy this week.

What a week. lots of good games by our top prospects. A few of them heading to their respective national teams, or trying out for them at least.

Marner lept past the 2PPG mark and Timashov is getting there too. Marner, Timashov, Johnson and Piccinich round out those prospects who are over 10NHLe points. This is a great groups of kids we have here this year. We'll still be seeing lots of great talent moving through the system even as we some of the top Marlies players graduate to the big show. Marner's putting up good enough points to not bother with another year in the O. It's going to be a great camp next fall with some really hard decisions.
