Toronto v Florida - Matt Frattin

Matt Frattin was absolutely stunning in his return.

Kudos to the sharp-shooting forward who returned to the lineup Friday night ready to play. Apparently the news if Frattin’s eligibility came so close to game time that the bus had to hold back a few extra minutes for him to arrive. And judging by the result, there was no better way to spend that extra time.

Frattin came out roaring with the game’s opening goal, and then a second later on to draw the Marlies to within one of the Bulldogs.

Toronto - Keith Aucoin

***

UPDATE: Matt Frattin to dress for the Toronto Marlies tonight. In his 13 playoff games prior to injury Frattin scored 10 goals, 13 points. Certainly a welcomed return to the Toronto lineup.

As it marked the beginning of the Marlies extended time away from Ricoh, so too does it indicate the end.

The Toronto Marlies return to Copps Coliseum to meet the Bulldogs after stringing together four wins and suffering only two losses since they last squared off in a game that was ultimately decided by Simon Gysbers’ overtime goal. Those four ...

Biggs/Percy - Stuart Percy

Not staying long, just wanted to leave you folks with the latest in the Biggs/Percy series.

Enjoy.

This could possibly be the most interesting test the Marlies have faced – and perhaps will face – all season.

The draft rankings of the Oklahoma City roster (AHL affiliate to the Edmonton Oilers) may be the most prestigious in all the AHL right now. The Barons boast seven selected in the second round to add to the six drafted in the NHL’s top 30, including two chosen first overall. Clutch goals, shootout goals and game winning goals have made Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins household names.

Jon Abbott

First off I’d like to dispel any rumours that Jon Abbott has turned 100, that’s just preposterous (the video for that would have to be much better). No, rather he crossed 100 games called with the Marlies this past week.

While the team fought from behind to tie and eventually win in Houston, our good friend Jon Abbott was sitting in front of the Marlies microphone for the 100th time. All of us wanted to make sure we recognized this feat, and not just those at Marlies headquarters. Many sent along your ...

First up, isn’t this pic incredible? It’s from a while ago, but it’s so good it is definitely worth reusing.

By now you probably know that the Marlies defeated the San Antonio Rampage on Saturday night in impressive fashion. Twice the team trailed by two goals, but first of the year tallies from Colborne, Scott, Kadri and D’Amigo lead the club to a 5-3 victory and a sweep of the Texan leg of this Royal roadie.

Now, had you not been online Saturday what you likely missed was the friendly beaking that escaped ...
