It is another two game week for the Marlies, so it leaves plenty of room for munching on the latest team news!

DESSERT

It could be a two milestone week for the Toronto Marlies Hockey Club. Brad Ross scored his 1st pro goal on Sunday, and it was timely vs. the Abbotsford Heat. Ross tipped in a point shot during the 3rd period that would tie the game at two goals apiece and produce a comeback for Toronto in the game. While the Calgary Flames affiliate spoiled the party, Ross still has […]

Toronto vs Rochester - Ben Scrivens

Friday will mark the latest battle in the Toronto and Rochester series. Heading into the game the two teams are tied with 19pts; the Americans have a slight advantage with a game in hand. Both vie for the eighth spot in the Western Conference.

In years past the end of November isn’t usually the time to start watching the standings – and trust me, I’m not trying to start anything here – but recently the league has shows a parody and competition level that calls to mind the NHL’s […]

Toronto vs Hamilton - EA Sports

This has got to be one of the funniest things I have ever seen. And most brilliant.

EA Sports has decided to do a weekly AHL Sim of the Week, the most recent was everyone’s favourite AHL rivalry; Hamilton vs Toronto. And I’d like to start out by saying this that even the computers know that Toronto would beat their provincial adversary.

The game took place at Copps Coliseum in front of what appears to be a sellout crowd (not too different than the Bulldog’s impressive attendance numbers this season). Opening the […]

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 […]

In my five seasons covering the Marlies, I don’t think I have ever seen anything that came close to today’s game versus Hamilton.

And don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some crazy things in my time.

There was the running over of James Reimer and subsequent four goal third period to lead the Marlies past the Senators in November 2009. I also remember a nutty third period against the Grand Rapids Griffins, one that saw more penalty minutes in the final ten minutes than some teams see in a month.

But […]

The last six periods have seen nine goals from the Toronto squad, the most yet over a two game span this season. On Saturday the Marlies will look to prove they can continue the upward swing and string together a third straight road victory.

The San Antonio Rampage – AHL affiliate to the Florida Panthers – will play host to the Toronto team on the ice surface inside AT&T Centre. Toronto was winless last season in the pair of games against the rampage, prolonging the struggles the Marlies have had against […]
