After a first round sweep of the Western Conference Quarter Finals, here is a little Marlies info to wet your whistle before round 2.


Toronto’s 3-2 overtime win in-game 3 of the 1st round vs Rochester provided them with a sweep over the Americans in the first round, for the second straight post-season. Marlies forward Will Acton was the hero scoring  at the 5:14 mark of the 20 minute extra frame. When it was all said and done, Toronto had 14 skaters pick up at least a point in the opening […]

Toronto vs Houston - Jake Gardiner

With the returning of the National Hockey League to regular play, my favourite aspect of the AHL is starting to shine through once again. The development of first-year players.

That’s not to say it was non-existent during the first part of the season – the blooming of Spencer Abbott is a tremendous example of such – but with the holes that were left by players moving up top to the Leafs, the prominence of roles and minutes played by rookies has increased.

After a road trip that has been a bit bumpy at times, this period of excellence couldn’t have come at a better time; likely for both us and the team. It helped me remember just how much talent is contained on this roster.

So, for a moment of […]

Toronto - Nazem Kadri, Greg Scott, Ryan Hamilton

With the Royal road trip well under way, the Marlies turn to Texas to start stringing together some serious wins.

Houston’s first up. Perhaps it’s a good thing. Toronto was two for two against the Aeros last season. In fact, in their game this time last year Mark Owuya made his first AHL start. After allowing an early goal and perhaps shaking some of the nerves, the Marlies notched six straight tallies. Rookie Matt Frattin potted the overtime winner.

This time around, their meeting comes on a Thursday night with a 8pm […]

It’s that time of year.

We all start becoming a little extra careful.

We begin monitoring our sleep, making sure to get the full eight hours; we take in more than the required liquids on a daily basis; and start protecting ourselves a little better when we head into the corners to retrieve a loose puck.

It’s November, the injury bug is running rampant and the Marlies have not been spared.

Matt Lashoff is recovering at home in Toronto after being the recipient of […]
