Another game, another franchise record broken for the Toronto Maple Leafs' incredible crop of rookies.

Just two days after Auston Matthews broke Wendel Clark's rookie goal record, Mitch Marner set a mark of his own.

With a secondary assist on James van Riemsdyk's first period goal Thursday night, Marner established a new franchise record in assists by a freshman (41), eclipsing the previous mark set by Gus Bodnar in the 1943-44 season.

The helper also pushed Marner into a tie with William Nylander - the other prominent figure in Toronto's rookie triumvirate - for second in team scoring with 58 points on the season.
