Matt Frattin. This is the turning point. No one knows it yet. It is late December and when Frattin arrives to the Marlies it is with the information from the folks up top that he won’t be coming back for a while. At first Frattin is all business. No one is ever puppies and picnics when they get sent down. The coaching staff with the Marlies is wondering whether the Frattin they know will come back or is this a different one. Has this new situation challenged him past the […]

Hamilton provided fans immediately with toughness when they first arrived on the scene.
