Toronto vs Hamilton - Jake Gardiner and Leo Komarov

At what point of the season does it become acceptable to start scoreboard watching? Is there an actual threshold we cross in which it’s alright to start calculating the number of games left and minimal amount of wins needed to make it into the post season?

The Marlies, who lead the Western Conference on New Year’s Eve, now find themselves ten points back of first and relegated to sixth in the West and on the unfavourable end of a three game losing streak. If the season ended today, Toronto […]

Toronto vs Wilkes-Barre/Scranton - Mike Zigomanis

Just days after the previous game day blog discussing Marlies on the move up to the NHL and how quickly things can change, the roster has yet again been shaken up.

Although the circumstances are all completely unrelated, it almost seems like the Marlies cashed in on a two-for-one deal. Matt Frattin was recalled by the NHL Maple Leafs to replace the injured Joffrey Lupul, while Toronto’s AHL blue line has been bolstered with the returning of both Korbinian Holzer and Jake Gardiner. Frattin made haste with impression making […]

Buffalo v Toronto - Korbinian Holzer

Leafs PR announced on Wednesday night Korbinian Holzer has been assigned to the Toronto Marlies following the activation of Jake Gardiner onto the active roster. Holzer is in his third season with the Toronto Marlies and has suited up for three games with the Maple Leafs, registering two penalty minutes.

For the Marlies, Holzer’s return is welcome as the team lost four blue liners when NHL training camp opened and have most recently been without Paul Ranger who is sidelined with an upper body injury.

Toronto vs Lake Erie - Nicolas Deschamps

So much can change in just six games.

When the Marlies departed Ricoh and took to the road, the opening of NHL training camp was yet to be confirmed. Keith Aucoin had yet to be called to camp, let alone collected off waivers by the New York Islanders organization. Ben Scrivens was starting in goal on a regular basis for the Toronto team, and the blue line was bolstered by Mike Kostka and Mark Fraser.

For Dallas Eakins, the Marlies’ bench boss now in his fourth year, change has become […]

Toronto vs Hamilton - Ryan Hamilton

I’m running out of comical ways of describing how many times the Marlies and Bulldogs have squared off. Saturday night will mark game nine of their twelve game season series. I think it’s time to start the count down. Including Saturday, four more games.

After falling to Binghamton on Friday, Toronto traveled through the night and spent the remaining hours usually allotted to sleep in Ontario’s steel town. Due to their late arrival the club has opted not to have a morning skate.

The Marlies have been on the losing […]
