The Scouting Report
Though the Marlies’ first-round playoff opponent is yet to be determined, it’s safe to say that the Toronto squad will be favored no matter which team suits up on the other end of the ice. With 43 wins so far this regular season, the Marlies have already clinched their third-straight North Division title—in 2012 and 2013, that regular-season dominance carried over into the first round of the playoffs, in which they swept their opponent.
The Marlies haven’t only grabbed headlines for their team’s performance. On April 16, defenceman T.J. Brennan received the Eddie Shore Award, which is bestowed upon the season’s defensive MVP. With 24 goals this season, Brennan is the AHL’s highest-scoring defenceman since 2000, putting himself in the annals of league history without having to hijack a zamboni.
As the American Hockey League affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Toronto Marlies take to the ice with a roster of young skaters on their way to an NHL career. Named after a legendary (but since dissolved) Junior A team, the Toronto Marlboros, the Marlies have had their share of success since their move to the city in 2005, including a 2011–2012 campaign in which they captured the Western Conference title and nearly hoisted the league’s hallowed Calder Cup. Crowds of up to 8,200 fans cheer the Marlies on from their home at Ricoh Coliseum, where team mascot Duke the Dog—his own name an homage to the Duke of Marlborough—dances in the stands.
