Less than two months into the 2022-23 season, forward Mitch Marner has been one of the hottest skaters in the National Hockey League, especially since late October.

Despite getting off to a modest start, posting one goal and five points in his first seven games, Marner has been on fire since an overtime loss at San Jose on Oct. 27, marking the start of his historic scoring streak. He also recorded his first multipoint performance of the season that night.

The Toronto Maple Leafs winger has since posted a 22-game point streak – the longest active streak in the league – which he extended on Saturday night against the Calgary Flames.

Marner is no stranger to extended point streaks, especially at this stage of his career, as he scored at least one point in 13 straight games last season. But the 25-year-old has never had one that lasted longer than a month.

With that in mind, let’s explore where the meteoric two-time All-Star streak ranks among Maple Leafs/St. Patricks franchise history and recent NHL history too.

Longest point streaks in franchise history

1. 22 Games – Mitch Marner (October 27, 2022 – present)

Marner has generated 10 goals and 29 points during his current point streak, totaling 11 goals and 34 points this season.

T-2. 18 Games – Darryl Sittler (January 26, 1978 – March 8, 1978)

In his eighth season with Toronto, Sittler tallied 17 goals and 33 points over 18 games en route to career highs for goals (45) and points (117). The Hall of Fame was also a runner-up for the Hart Trophy in 1977-78.

T-2. 18 Games – Eddie Olczyk (December 2, 1989 – January 8, 1990)

Olczyk, who played four seasons with the Maple Leafs from 1988 to 1991, matched Sittler’s scoring streak more than 10 years later, scoring 11 goals and 28 points during that span.

T-3. 16 games – Dave Andreychuk (January 6, 1994 – February 15, 1994)

Andreychuk only played one full season in Toronto, but the Hall of Fame forward enjoyed it, scoring 21 goals and 26 points during his 16-game point streak. The 2004 Stanley Cup winner also finished with 53 goals and 99 points in 83 games.

T-3. 16 Games – Babe Dye (January 14, 1922 – March 8, 1922)

Now here’s a look back. Dye scored a point in 16 of his 24 games during the 1921-22 season, collecting 31 goals and 38 points. The Hall of Fame winger also won the Stanley Cup with the St. Pats that season.

T-3. 16 Games – John Anderson (November 19, 1983 – December 28, 1983)

Anderson, an 11th overall pick by Toronto in 1977, enjoyed his 16-game point streak in his seventh season with the Maple Leafs, scoring 14 goals and 26 points. He finished with 37 goals and 68 points in 73 games.
