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.

If […]

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 […]

Toronto vs Abbotsford - Nazem Kadri

When I think of the Abbotsford Heat, do you want to know what I think of?

I recall three straight seasons the Marlies closed out against their west coast rival, two without a hope of the post-season.

I remember Greg Scott notching his his first career hat-trick in Abbotsford.

Above all, I am taken back to the very moment the Marlies new they were heading to the conference finals; having scored an overtime goal to take their fourth straight against the Heat. In a recent chat with Mike Zigomanis, the goal scorer, he […]

I’ve got the itch.

I remember this feeling. Following my first year, in which the team had failed to make the post-season, it set in by early May. It was nearly five months of scratching.

Now after experiencing one of the AHL’s two longest 2011/12 campaigns, and subsequent recovery, I’m getting the itch to be back. Back to early mornings at the rink, […]

Calgary Stampede - Ben Scrivens

I think it’s time for a little off-season update.

After the long run to the Calder Cup finals, the Marlies parted ways and headed back to their respective home towns. For a few, like defenceman Simon Gysbers and hard-nosed forward Will Acton, it meant only a trip up highway 404.

Others, like #feardabeard zealot Jerry D’Amigo, headed south across the border to their States-side home while still more ventured to western Canada, like netminder Ben Scrivens, who most likely drove his Chevy pickup all the way home. Knowing the Spruce Grove, Alberta, […]

Marlies Bench

Anyone can read a stat sheet.

Living in Toronto has taught me that much.

Likewise I have also learned that anyone can tell the time, but only few can fix a watch.

I always found it interesting that goals and assists were both worth one point on the stats sheet. Don’t get me wrong, it did me wonders when playing hockey. I could put up three points in a game on secondary assists alone. Though when analyzing a team’s success – especially as they venture further down the playoff road – a goal […]
