TORONTO- It was a busy week for the Toronto Marlies as they played Tuesday night and then three more times over the weekend, coming away with just one victory.

Tuesday they lost at home 4-3 in overtime to the Grand Rapids Griffins and then lost to them again on Friday night 6-3 in Grand Rapids.

The Marlies returned home Saturday afternoon and shutout the Houston Aeros 4-0 but fell to the St. John’s IceCaps 4-2 on Sunday.

Currently, the Marlies are 13-7-4, which is good enough for a seven-point lead atop the North Division.

With that said, here are the hot and cold performers for the week of November 28th to December 4th.

He hasn’t recorded a point in nine games even though he’s seeing an increase in time on the power play.
