TORONTO– The Toronto Marlies kicked off their week with a boxing day game at the Air Canada Centre against the Hamilton Bulldogs. Then it was a Thursday night tilt with the Lake Erie Monsters before wrapping up the week with a two-game series at the Ricoh Coliseum against the St. John’s IceCaps.

In those four games, the Marlies went 1-2-1.

They lost on boxing day 6-3 to Bulldogs after jumping out to a 3-0 lead.

On Thursday, they fell to the Monsters 2-1 after outshooting the opponent 27-11.

On Saturday, they lost 4-3 in a shootout to the IceCaps but made up for the loss with a 3-1 victory on Sunday in a rematch.

On the season the Marlies are 17-12-5, which gives them 39 points and a three-point lead atop the North Division.

Here are the Toronto Marlies hot and cold performers over the week of December 26th to January 1st.

Who’s Hot

Ryan Hamilton

Season Stats: 34 GP 15 G 9 A 23 PTS

Has scored at least once in five straight games and has six goals in that span. Now leads the team with 15 goals, including seven on the power play.

Jussi Rynnas

Season Stats: 5-7-0 3.16 GAA .895 SV%

Picked up his first win on Sunday since November 26th. By far his best performance of the season and now that he’s put back to back quality starts together, he may see some more playing time.

Jerry D’Amigo

Season Stats: 34 GP 9 G 11 A 20 PTS

Had two goals and an assist this week but more importantly scored his team-leading third game-winning goal on Sunday. He’s doing a lot of little things right and has seen an increase in ice time.

Who’s Cold

Ben Scrivens

Season Stats: 7-6-1 2.37 GAA .911 SV%

Won only one game in December, compiling a record of 1-5-1 overall. Allowed two goals on just 11 shots to loss against Lake Erie.

Joe Colborne

Season Stats: 23 GP 11 G 12 A 23 PTS

Picked up a goal against Hamilton but has just four points in nine games since returning to the Marlies from the Leafs. He scored his first 19 points of the season in the first 11 games.

Marcel Mueller

Season Stats: 31 GP 7 G 16 A 23 PTS

Four points in his last 12 games is far from the scoring pace he started the season with. Picking up minutes on the top line so his production must pick up.

Look for Toronto Marlies hot and cold performers every Monday.
