The Toronto Marlies have battled the Manitoba Moose in two-straight games and have got the win both nights. A lot has happened in what’s felt like a week for myself covering the Marlies this season (it’s only been two days).
First, it was Rasmus Sandin getting injured after blocking a shot in the second period of game one against the Moose. However, there was some good news that came in the Marlies’ second game of the season and it was Nick Robertson scoring his first-ever AHL goal.

It was actually the game-winning goal too.
Robertson came into this season with the hopes of becoming a regular on the Toronto Maple Leafs but with a crowded lineup and an injury, he never got much of a chance. That was, until he was sent down to the Toronto Marlies where he’s now playing on their top line.
After two games in the AHL, Robertson has one goal and two assists and is tied for the team lead in points. I can say that’s a pretty good start …
