His dad begged the coach to let Mitch (4 years old) play against 6 year olds.

At the 3:20 mark, after the 'Don't Stop Believing' image, he goes on a crazy end-to-end rush where he undresses the entire team a couple of time and puts it top corner.  That rush was crazy.  The kid could hit too!

EDIT:  nvm... after watching the rest I realized that he does this through the entire video.  It's crazy how good he is relative to the other players on the ice.

Haha, yeah. Especially when he was half the size of everyone else, he was just wrecking them (some scary knee ones too). Once he got bigger and closer in size, he seemed to stop hitting (or his parents didn't think his hitting was as impressive as his other skills anymore).

He's very creative (not just in the imaginative sense), as he generates turnovers and chances for himself and his teammates regularly. When he gets stripped of the puck, he puts his head down steamrolls whoever dared take it from him.

I would also like to point out his backhand. Haven't seen one like that around these parts since Sundin.

No great revelations here, but a decent enough newspaper article on Mitch Marner’s journey to be Maple Leafs’ top pick.

And it seems the Canada Junior game broadcast is presently pre-empted/delayed by the end of the Argo-Ticats game... :(

I've only been able to watch a little of the game.  Is Marner being used on the wing or at centre?

I didn't watch, but it seems like like played primarily on the wing at even-strength. Played centre/took faceoffs on the PK and played on the point on the PP.
