The Heat have lost three straight and a […]

AHL Toronto Marlies vs Binghamton Senators, March 2, 2013


Sam Carrick has played hockey in the Toronto area for a long time. The 21-year-old played his entire OHL career in Brampton, totalling almost 300 games with the Battalion.

Lacing them up for the Marlies on Saturday vs the Binghamton Senators, the Maple Leafs 5th rounder was quick

Nothing says Christmas like a stuffed bear leaping from the arms of a full grown man, over the boards in a local hockey rink, and plummeting down on to the frozen playing surface below.

Amidst a sea of amigos, Felix Beargartner made his leap on Sunday when Greg McKegg scored the Marlies first goal against the Abbotsford Heat.

Sunday’s a big game for the Toronto team.

The gap between the Marlies and the first place Heat has continued to narrow.

I remember going through the prospective roster ahead of the season.

I counted in my head how many of the players could be top-notch point producers at the AHL level. I think we all did that. Ryan Hamilton, Greg Scott and Carter Ashton all scored upwards of 20 goals last season; Mike Zigomanis and Nazem Kadri were both close to doing the same. Matt Frattin produced at a point-per-game pace during the playoffs, and both Nicolas Deschamps and Jerry D’Amigo put up double-digit figures in the post-season.

Add to that […]
