Mitch Marner’s ninth multi-point game in the 2016 playoffs, and remarkably his sixth game with three or more points, has him on a historic pace for an OHL playoff campaign in the modern era.

Here’s Marner’s latest work — two goals and two assists — in a Game Three win over the Erie, placing the Knights on the verge of an OHL Western Conference Final sweep over the Otters.

Mitch Marner now leads the OHL in playoff scoring with 35 points in 13 games, four ahead of teammate Christian Dvorak and 10 ahead of his nearest non-Knights competition.

Let’s put this into historical context.
