Ron Ellis contributed 640 points in 1,034 games for the Maple Leafs, with 332 goals and 308 assists. His +74 plus/minus rating and 56 power-play goals reflect his consistent performance. Ellis’ 50 game-winning goals and 14.2% shooting percentage show his ability to come through in critical moments, making him a valuable player in Maple Leafs’ history.

Maple Leafs All-Time Leading Scorer #8: Mitch Marner

Marner, currently ranked 8th in all-time scoring for the Maple Leafs, has accumulated 639 points in 576 games. His 194 goals and 445 assists, combined with a +110 plus/minus rating, show his playmaking skills and offensive contributions. Marner’s 44 power-play and 30 game-winning goals underscore his ability to perform in key moments. With a shooting percentage of 13.0% and an average ice time of nearly 20 minutes per game, Marner has established himself as a critical component of the team’s success.

How Soon Before Marner Becomes the Maple Leafs All-Time Scoring Leader?

Forgetting for a moment Matthews’ rise on this list, to become the all-time leader in points, Marner must surpass Mats Sundin’s record of 987 points. Given Marner’s average of approximately 1.11 points per game, he could reach Sundin’s record in around 315 more games. Assuming he stays healthy and plays about 80 games per season, he would need under four more seasons to achieve this milestone. With consistent performance, Marner might soon become the Maple Leafs’ all-time points leader in the foreseeable future. It is within reach, provided he excels in his prime years.

As Marner continues his career, he has the potential to climb higher on the list of all-time Maple Leafs scorers. His consistent performance and significant contributions to the team’s offense make him a valuable asset and a player to watch as he further cements his legacy in Maple Leafs history.
