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 […]

Toronto vs Binghamton - Mike Zigomanis, Jesse Blacker, Josh Engel

 

Marlies are in Binghamton Friday to face the Senators with a lineup which has changed even more since the shifting of bodies that happened with the opening of Maple Leafs training camp. The Marlies currently sit third in the Eastern Conference while the Senators are ranked fourth in the west. Friday marks the second meeting between the two clubs this season, both being in Binghamton, with the remaining two to be hosted at Ricoh in early March.

The Marlies will be without Keith Aucoin who was acquired by the New York […]

Toronto vs St. John

With the NHL on its way back, bringing with it the regular talk of league parity, it’s incredible to see how the increased levels of competition have trickled down to the AHL levels.

Sure, it makes the season more fun… but it also must take its toll on the heart of a head coach.

The Marlies have been one of the league’s hottest teams since before Christmas. Their 7-1-1-1 record over the past ten is the second best in the league. Yet still the dogfight continues for the conference’s top […]

Want to know the best part of the Marlies game being snowed out on Friday forcing the team to stay an extra day and play a rescheduled Sunday game? There’s not much to change for the Saturday preview.

Catch the preview originally intended for Friday, but equally applicable for Saturday.

We’ve all wondered the same thing and, without request nor anticipation, it seems January (11th) 12th is the day to answer. With the imminent return of the NHL, how will the Toronto Marlies fare?

After suffering a low scoring […]

Toronto vs Hamilton - Ryan Hamilton

Is it just me, or did these next few games get a whole lot more important?

The Marlies have been on a monumental run, the club has collected at least a point in ten straight games and a win in eight of those. With the Toronto club on the heels of three straight sellout crowds, they now head to the road for a half dozen contests as the Ricoh ice surface becomes submerged and the boat show floats in. With eyes on so many of the talents that comprise […]
