By now, you've likely heard all about Toronto Maple Leafs budding superstar Mitch Marner. The 21-year-old winger has taken the NHL by storm this season with a sensational 82 points (24 goals and 58 assists) in only 67 games, good enough for the team lead in scoring.
What you likely haven't heard as much about is his growing bromance with veteran Leafs forward Patrick Marleau, a relationship the two haven't been afraid to put on display.
In their latest PDA moment, the two get together for a hilarious Intact Insurance commercial in which the pair's chemistry cannot be denied:
Along with other young Leafs players, such as fellow superstar Auston Matthews, Marner has become an extended part of the Marleau clan, even making appearances in family Christmas photos:
Our 12 yo son had a hockey game, so he wasn’t able to attend the Leafs Christmas party. We did manage to get these two @Marner93 @stephlachanceee in the pic, but couldn’t find @AM34 🙁 We’ll redo it on Xmas day for you, Auston! pic.twitter.com/ZFhxp3j4Mx
Marleau's kids have even taken to Marner, calling him out in chirps on their mom's (Christina Marleau) Twitter account:

Marner has even accompanied Marleau and his kids on outings, joining in on car ride singalongs like he's part of the family:
If these two can find the same kind of chemistry on the ice as they do off of it, the Maple Leafs might want to consider keeping this dynamic duo together a lot more often.
