It’s neat. Having access to the rookies as they experience things for the first time.

I feel like it is the closest we can get to experiencing it ourselves – whether it be a training camp, a first game or a road trip. For the newcomers, it hasn’t become routine. The novelty hasn’t worn off.

So to hear their expressions – the parts they find funny, or hard, or exciting, or challenging – seem incredibly genuine.

Enjoy the latest in the series of The Rookie Class. Casey, the team’s bus driver, ...

It is another two game week for the Marlies, so it leaves plenty of room for munching on the latest team news!

DESSERT

Toronto vs Abbotsford - Nazem Kadri

Sunday’s a big game for the Toronto team.

The gap between the Marlies and the first place Heat has continued to narrow. Toronto is now only four points back of Abbotsford and a game with a four point swing (the outcome either shrinking the gap to two points or widening it to six) a favourable end could bring the Marlies within spitting distance of the conference’s top spot.
