It all started with a challenge.

You remember Monika with a K, right? 

It was a showdown between her and I; mono y mono. Which one of us could meet more of Leafs Nation.

There was a catch though, there always is.

Monika would have Air Canada Centre and all of its 19,000 fans at her disposal. I would be allotted Ricoh Coliseum.

And just like that, Meet Me at the Marlies began.

I remember once being told that the reason someone […]

It has never needed to be written, but has likely existed since the days of the stone tablets.

It’s the silent agreement that brings strangers together, banding them as brothers. It is rarely spoken about, but widely understood. The Bro Code fuels boys nights out, guys getaways and evidently AHL team road trips.

The basics of the code between teammates are no different than that which binds schoolyard pals. The rules don’t change. And as conversation with the Marlies began following their first practice at MasterCard […]

It’s that time of year.

We all start becoming a little extra careful.

We begin monitoring our sleep, making sure to get the full eight hours; we take in more than the required liquids on a daily basis; and start protecting ourselves a little better when we head into the corners to retrieve a loose puck.

It’s November, the injury bug is running rampant and the Marlies have not been spared.

Matt Lashoff is recovering at home in Toronto after being the recipient of […]

New blog, same slogan: “EVERY GAME IS A TRYOUT”

What better way to launch the new Marlies.ca blog than with good news. Matt Frattin’s been recalled by the Maple Leafs after a two goal outing with the Marlies on Sunday. Given the Marlies are in the middle of an 18-day roadie, it was the team bus that taxied Frattin to the airport with a whole hockey team to wish him luck.

The cheers as he walks up the aisle are my favourite. Check it out.

Official Press Release

Brian Burke, President and General Manager […]

Kenny Ryan is Superman.

I’m sure of it.

Ryan doesn’t wear glasses, neither does Superman. Like the DC Comics character, Ryan’s identity is made up of dual first names. And, as we all witnessed during the Leafs opening game of preseason, Ryan fears not jumping in front of a speeding bullet (check the 3:30 mark of the night’s Game in Six).

When Ryan was assigned to the Toronto Marlies on Sunday he was sent with a positive message; he had established his identity. Ryan had asserted his hardworking nature, built over years of […]

A camp like no other.It sounds much like a bad horror movie released in the late 90’s. I assure you despite both containing ‘cuts,’ this one will be far more enjoyable to watch.The lights on the Toronto Marlies practice pad at MCC turned on Friday morning and for the first time this season, a group wearing Marlies sweaters took to the ice; 11 skaters and one goalie. Marlies camp is open for business.

The Toronto AHL club took its current form after the Maple Leafs made their first round of cuts […]

Imagine never being nervous.

Late night cram sessions before a test would be a thing of the past. Never would there be that awkward moment when you pray ‘Insufficient Funds’ doesn’t appear on the debit terminal. And let’s not even discuss first dates.

Despite Jake Gardiner admitting otherwise, in his first game at Air Canada Centre he appeared to be no more nervous than if you had asked him to rhyme off the alphabet. Gardiner’s on-ice presence was that of confidence and poise, from the opening face-off right through to his post-game […]

I’m a guy that shoots an 88 on the golf course… in 9 holes.

A week ago if you had told that I’d be spending my Tuesday afternoon out on the green, I wouldn’t have believed you. I feel far more at home within the confines of an arena. Yet there I was, tooting around Rattlesnake Point at the Scotiabank Leafs & Legends Charity Golf Classic in a cart with LeafsTv’s Paul Hendrick behind the wheel (who, might I add, is a spectacular driver).

As surprising and irregular as it was, being […]

I grew up in a small town about an hour north of Toronto.

When a tragedy occurred, the community would leave a rose in memory of our neighbour. The display of flowers demonstrating the town’s collective support.

In yesterday’s tragic death of Wade Belak we lost a member of our community.

Many of us knew Wade from our interactions in the living room. We celebrated alongside him as he broke his scoring drought and we chuckled as he gave us his often-humorous post-game thoughts.

As we all reflect on the loss, the day has […]

There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.

A young, heavy on hope, light on experience, Dorothy began one of my favourite childhood movies wishing only to be taken away somewhere over the rainbow. It wasn’t until after being swept away to a magical land filled with fairy godmothers, emerald cities and horses of a different colour, wicked witches from the west and flying monkeys, that it was at home she was most comfortable.

The thought of being on the road – restaurant food, experiencing a different city every night […]
