The Mitch Marner sweepstakes are officially underway.
Multiple teams have reached out to the restricted free agent now that the interview period has opened, sources told TSN's Darren Dreger.
The last restricted free agent to publicly use the RFA interview period to meet with other teams was Shea Weber in 2012. He signed a 14-year, $110-million offer sheet with the Philadelphia Flyers before it was matched by the Nashville Predators.
Ryan O'Reilly was the last player to sign an offer sheet in 2013, though he did not - at least publicly - meet with other clubs during the interview window. He signed a two-year, $10-million offer sheet with the Calgary Flames that was matched by the Colorado Avalanche.
Marner is eligible to sign an offer sheet with a club when free agency opens July 1. Dubas said it's not a "foregone conclusion" the Leafs would match an offer.
If the Leafs don't match an offer sheet for Marner with a cap hit exceeding $10.6 million, they would receive four first-round picks of compensation.
The 22-year-old recorded a career-high 94 points last season.
