Minor hockey coach on the pride we have as Sidney Crosby hits 1,000 career points
His former player was expected to cross an elite threshold in the world of professional hockey, but it was no surprise to Sidney Crosby’s childhood coach.
Toronto Maple Leafs leading scorer Mitch Marner missed practice on Friday morning, raising the level of uncertainty around the health of the 19-year-old winger.
He left a 5-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday evening with an apparent right shoulder injury.
Marner fell awkwardly into the boards in the second period against the Jackets, returning to play two shifts in the third before exiting for good.
He leads the Leafs and all NHL rookies with 48 points this season.
Head coach Mike Babcock is expected to update his status following practice.
The Leafs host the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.
