Kasperi "Clutch" Kapanen ties it at 3 in the 3rd with 3 to play against Rochester.
I would say Kapi should be our next call up. He is doing that at the AHL level

Looks like Kapi injured his knee, hope not

the team is saying that he will be out some time but not saying what it is. I would say an ACL and that could hurt for a long time. To bad! :'(

MCL didn't like it maybe fared too well, either.

#Marlies updates from today: Brooks Laich was back skating this morning at MCC. Kasperi Kapanen spotted on crutches w/ boot as well.

And this per Craig Custance in an ESPN Insider article:

Quote
The Marlies have subsequently indicated that Kapanen will miss eight weeks with a lower-body injury.

Not good news.

In some ways although this is a very bad break and not good news, suggests that this is an ankle injury (or broken foot) and not the dreaded ACL tear it looked like. If he is back in 8 weeks he will be ready for the playoffs.

I'm assuming you mean the NHL Playoffs?  Isn't looking good for the Marlies to make the AHL Playoffs.

Havent been following the standings that much. I guess I may of made a wrong assumption.

Nielsen with both goals as the Marlies lead 2-0 in the first against the Wolf Pack.

Was just reading about Marlies, and the kind of disappointing season they're having.

Looking at the up and comers, Kapanen and Leipsic are the only ones that might be ready to graduate.  I thought this was kind of disappointing.

But really, is anyone expecting the Marlies to develop more than 2 NHL ready guys per season?

Good point, I would think 2 per season would do the trick.  However it is possible to have a season were they may be able to graduate 4.  I can see Neilson and Dermott being ready in 2 more years, by that time Kapenen and Leipsic may find a spot as well. And they seem to want to fast track Gundstrom to the Marlies for some reason.

I was looking around for these numbers. 10 pts in 7 games.

In the 7 games prior up to Jan 20, the Marlies suffered 4 losses in a row. Since Griffith's arrival: only 2 losses in those 7, one coming on Seth's first game with the team.

It's not all Griffith either. Sparks is finally starting to get more starts, and he's putting up way better numbers than Bibeau since last season but mysteriously got the shaft for the playoffs.

Pretty much every Marlie whose name you know is currently injured in some way.

Brendan Miller, called up from the ECHL, potted his first goal of his AHL career yesterday.

His sticks didn't arrive in Toronto in time, either, so he was borrowing Soshnikov's.
