Marner on the IR

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS - JONAS SIEGEL

TORONTO — The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed 19-year-old rookie Mitch Marner on in­jured re­serve and re­called cen­tre Fred­erik Gau­thier from the AHL’s Toronto Mar­lies.

Marner sat out his third con­sec­u­tive game Tues­day night when the Leafs faced the vis­it­ing Win­nipeg Jets.

The ear­li­est the 19-year-old can re­turn from a sus­pected right shoul­der in­jury is Thurs­day night, against the New York Rangers.

Sec­ond in team scor­ing with 48 points, Marner was in­jured last Wed­nes­day when he fell awk­wardly into the boards in a 5-2 loss to the Colum­bus Blue Jack­ets.

He sat out the past two games — a loss Satur­day to the Ot­tawa Sen­a­tors and win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sun­day.

Con­nor Brown, Marner’s re­place­ment along­side veter­ans Tyler Bozak and James van Riems­dyk, had two goals in the vic­tory against the Hurricanes.

Gau­thier has played in 18 games with the Leafs this sea­son.
