Toronto Maple Leafs rookie Mitch Marner takes a tumble and goes hard into the boards, he would try to tough it out, but looked like he was in some discomfort and would eventually leave the game in the 3rd.

Maple Leafs forward Mitchell Marner left Toronto’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night with an upper-body injury.

The 19-year-old rookie took a hit from Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner in the second period and went crashing into the boards (video above). He appeared to be in pain on the Leafs bench but stayed in the game. Marner eventually left midway through the third and did not return.
