NHL rumors: Offer sheet coming for Maple Leafs’ Mitch Marner?

Newark Star-Ledger

The NHL offseason and free agency have already seen one offer sheet signed. Could another one be on the way for Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner?

Marner, a restricted free agent coming off his entry-level contract, has been the subject of offer sheet rumors for months, with the winger in line for a big raise and the Maple Leafs in a tight salary-cap situation.

Marner, who posted 94 points last season and has 224 in 241 career games over three seasons, could be looking for a deal that rivals the $11.634 million AAV extension teammate Auston Matthews received during the 2018-19 season.

While the Leafs have kept talking to Marner, he’s reportedly talked to other teams. If a team is willing to pay the price, he could sign an offer sheet, putting the Leafs on the spot.
