Mitch Marner enjoyed the sun and sand at this year’s National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star festivities held on February 4th at the 20,737-capacity FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Florida (US), the home of the NHL team Florida Panthers.

‘CBC Sports’ stated that the NHL team Toronto Maple Leafs (Canada) winger Mitch Marner will need his Winter coat if he makes the cut next year.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced on February 4th that the League’s 2024 showcase will be played in Toronto for the ninth time.

New York (US)-based the National Hockey League (NHL) is a professional ice hockey league in North America comprising 32 teams – 25 in the United States and 7 in Canada. It is considered to be the top-ranked professional ice hockey league in the world, and is one of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada.

The National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star Game is an exhibition ice hockey tournament that is traditionally held during the regular season of the National Hockey League (NHL), with many of the League’s star players playing against each other. Each team plays with four players, including three skaters and one goaltender.

Mitch Marner is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger and alternate captain for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League. He was selected fourth overall by the Maple Leafs in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

The Toronto Maple Leafs is a professional ice hockey team based in Toronto (Canada). They compete in the National Hockey League as a member of the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference. The club is owned by the Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, a company that owns several professional sports teams in the City. The 19,800-capacity Scotiabank Arena serves as their residence.

The NHL Entry Draft is an annual meeting in which every franchise of the National Hockey League systematically selects the rights to available ice hockey players who meet Draft eligibility requirements.

“Going to be a little colder than here,” Marner said before taking the ice for the Atlantic Division in South Florida (US).

Added Marner, “It’s gonna be fun.”

‘CBC Sports’ further stated that the skills competition will be held on February 2nd, 2024 with the All-Star Game the following day at the Scotiabank Arena.

The 18,800-capacity Scotiabank Arena, formerly known as the Air Canada Centre (ACC), is a multipurpose arena located on Bay Street in the South Core district of Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is the home of the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Enthused Brendan Shanahan, Leafs President, “We’re really excited to welcome hockey fans from all around the world, and the best players. We love our hockey and we love to celebrate the game.”
 

Flashback

Shanahan played in the All-Star Game the last time it was held in Toronto back in 2000.

Marner was just short of his third birthday.

Recounted Shanahan, “I asked Mitch how old he was for that one and he was quite young. He didn’t remember, so I lied to him and told him I won the car – wasn’t true. I remember the excitement and the buzz in the City. Any time that you’re in Toronto for a hockey game – especially something like the All-Star Game – you can feel the excitement.”

The National Basketball Association (NBA) team Toronto Raptors hosted the 2016 NBA All-Star Game at the same venue (read Scotiabank Arena).

New York (US)-based the National Basketball Association (NBA) is a professional basketball league in North America. The league is composed of 30 teams and is one of the major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada. It is the premier men’s professional basketball league in the world.

The National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game is a basketball exhibition game hosted every February by the National Basketball Association (NBA) and showcases 24 of the League’s star players. It is the featured event of the NBA All-Star Weekend, a three-day event held from Friday to Sunday.

Maintained Marner, “The City’s gonna be loving this. We’re gonna be getting all the best players in the world in the same place at one time. Just seeing how the NBA All-Star Game was, I’m sure the NHL one’s gonna be even bigger. Fans are gonna love it.”
