Leafs’ Marner to miss fourth game to injury when Toronto hosts NYR

Leafs' Marner to sit against Rangers

Toronto forward Mitch Marner will miss his fourth consecutive game with an apparent right shoulder injury when the Maple Leafs host the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Leafs head coach Mike Babcock confirmed Wednesday that Marner would sit out against the Rangers.

The 19-year-old was placed on injured reserve Tuesday morning after he was injured last week in a loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Babcock said Tuesday that Marner was day-to-day, meaning he’d likely miss a total of 10 days of action. That would mean a possible return to the lineup on Saturday when Toronto hosts Montreal.
