TORONTO– The Toronto Marlies spent all week practicing, as they only played two games this week and they were both on the weekend.

The Marlies played the St. John’s IceCaps twice on the weekend and beat them 4-3 in overtime on Friday and 6-3 on Saturday.

Currently, Toronto is 12-5-3, have won six in a row and are first in the North Division with 27 points.

With that said, here are the Toronto Marlies hot and cold performers for the week of November 21st to 27th.

Who’s Hot

Nazem Kadri

Season Stats:13 GP 4 G 11 A 15 PTS

Had two goals and two assists on Friday and chipped in another goal on Saturday for five points in two games. Has taken over much of the offence in the absence of Joe Colborne.



Marcel Mueller

Season Stats: 17 GP 4 G 14 A 18 PTS

Registered multi-point performances in both games with a total of one goal and three assists. Had 13 points in last nine games.




Jeff Finger

Season Stats: 12 GP 2 G 3 A 5 PTS

Returned to the line up and scored the game winner in overtime on Friday. Set up the game winner on Saturday and totaled three points in two games.


Who’s Cold

Luca Caputi

Season Stats: 11 GP 1 G 0 A 1 PTS

Has missed nine consecutive games with a hand injury. Has been listed as day-to-day for almost three weeks but has yet to skate at practice.



Kyle Neuber

Season Stats: 10 GP 0 G 0 A 0 PTS

Not expected to score, as he is a secondary enforcer, but he picked up a 10 minute misconduct on Saturday after late in the third period; something head coach Dallas Eakins is likely  not too thrilled about.

Jesse Blacker

Season Stats: 18 GP 0 G 7 A 7 PTS

Has not played poorly by any means, but only has one assist in his last six games. Because of recent call-ups, the offensive defenceman will be expected to produce more, especially on the power play.


Look for Marlies hot and cold performers every Monday
