Maple Leafs' Marner and Engvall Return as 3 Others Land on COVID-19 List

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Mitch Marner could have returned to action earlier in the week had the schedule allowed for it.

Both he and forward Pierre Engvall, were eligible to return to the team earlier than Friday, but a compressed schedule that saw the Toronto Maple Leafs play on back-to-back nights made for a less-than-ideal situation for both forwards to re-enter the lineup earlier in the week.

“It wouldn’t have been the right to do, playing last game but I was open to doing that as well,” Marner said after practice on Friday, “I’m just excited to be back and I’m good to go.”
