Mitch Marner had a rocky start to the season this year. He went 16 games without scoring, dating back to last year's playoffs, and he was still questioned about his maturity.

However, he overcame a sluggish start to end the season with 97 points, including 35 goals and 62 assists.
"Just growing up wise, being more mature and growing into my body a little more weight wise and strength wise," he said. "I'm definitely a different person than I was the last couple years. It's something, like you just said, I talk about it a lot - whenever you're here around the arena, you just want to get better, whether it's in the gym or on the ice. I think that's something that lot of guys in our locker room do as well."

"Everyone has this thing about athletes in general that we can handle anything by ourselves and stuff like that, but that's not true," he continued. "There's a lot of mental health stuff that goes on behind the, I'd say shades, some people really hide. For us athletes, There's nothing to be embarrassed or hide about. If you want to talk about stuff, it's been great to have Greg around. Just in general you shouldn't hold it in by yourself, and Greg's been great to talk to."

Coach Greg Harden has helped Marner. Let's see how good the young man performs next week during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
