Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner skated in a a full-contact practice with his team on Monday, just 23 days after he sustained a high-ankle sprain during a Nov. 9 game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The team had initially indicated the 22-year-old star would be sidelined for a minimum of four weeks after his injury, putting him on the ice for practice one week earlier than expected. Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reported Monday that the earliest Marner is eligible to come off long-term injured reserve is Wednesday, Dec. 5 — meaning No. 16 will miss at least two more games before he takes the ice again for new Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe.

Marner told reporters on Nov. 12 that he expected his ankle to "kind of be facing the wrong direction" when he heard a snap during that game.

“When I noticed that it wasn’t, I didn’t really know what the feeling was," he said via TSN. "I didn’t know what the result could have been, so I kind of had my mind open to anything.”

The injury itself came when he tripped over the stick of Philadelphia's Carsen Twarynsk in the second period Saturday and awkwardly twisted the ankle. He initially tried to skate off the ice but appeared unable to put weight on his right leg. He eventually dragged himself to the bench on his hands and knees.

Marner briefly returned to the ice during a TV timeout to test the ankle, but he said the team's trainers recognized he was "in an uncomfortable situation" and told him to leave the game.

Marner has scored 18 points (four goals, team-high 14 assists) in 18 games this season. While the Leafs ultimately lost that Nov. 9 matchup against the Flyers 3-2, the winger had on Nov. 12 that he viewed his recovery time as an opportunity to come back stronger than before.

“Looking back at the video, seeing the photos, it could have been a lot worse than what actually happened,” Marner said. “You always have to look at the bright side and now it’s something where I can get in that gym, get stronger and try to make my shot better when I get back.”
