Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner was robbed at gunpoint Monday night in a parking lot. The right winger's car was stolen.
Just 48 hours after being eliminated from the NHL playoffs, Marner and a friend were at a movie theater in Toronto when three mask-wearing suspects – two with handguns and one with a knife – approached the car and told Marner that they wanted the vehicle.
"Go ahead and take it," Marner, 25, said according to Toronto Sun.

"He's doing all right," an unnamed person who was on the scene told the Sun of Marner.
