Toronto Marlies Season Recap

October, 2019 (Record: 6-0-2)

The Marlies couldn’t have got off to a better start than this. In their first eight games, the team had yet to lose in regulation.

The question mark in net was answered early as defense wasn’t an issue. The team had two shut-outs in their first five games and it looked like they were on their way to another magical season.

There was essentially nothing bad to say about the team at this point.

Fun Fact of the Month: Egor Korshkov, Pierre Engvall and Pontus Aberg all led the team with seven points, while Korshkov has five goals in his first eight games.

November, 2019 (Record: 8-3-1)

The team had a tough road-trip to start the month, but they rallied quickly with a seven-game win streak in the middle of November.

The Marlies loved their home-cooking at the start of the season, as it took until November 30th for the Marlies to lose a regular season game at home. In 19 games to start the season, the Marlies were now 14-3-3, and Aberg continued to lead the team in points with 22 on the season.

Fun Fact of the Month: After the Maple Leafs fired Mike Babcock, Sheldon Keefe was named the head coach of the big club, so assistant coaches Rob Davison and A.J. MacLean took over the coaching duties for the Marlies.
