A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Canadian Press that Marner and his friend were robbed of their Land Rover at gunpoint outside a movie theater by three suspects, two of whom were armed with handguns.

The Maple Leafs said in a written statement Tuesday that Marner was not injured in the carjacking.

The Twitter post is Marner’s first public comment since the crime. He was not present at Tuesday’s season-ending press conference following the Maple Leafs’ playoff loss to Tampa Bay. nickelodeon

“The overwhelming support I’ve felt from the Toronto community has been incredible,” said Marner, who also thanked Toronto police for their work in the investigation.

“It’s a scary situation, but we’re safe and we’re fine.”
