Toronto Marlies ramping up for a run at first Calder Cup championship

The Marlies have been preparing all week for what the organization hopes is a run at an AHL championship – potentially the franchise’s first Calder Cup. They’re the favourites after finishing first overall with one of the league’s youngest rosters and their NHL parent borrowing heavily from their lineup all year.

In all, 58 players skated for first-year Marlies coach Sheldon Keefe this season, an almost unthinkable number that included players from just about every league possible.

It’s common knowledge the Leafs have built one of the better prospect pools in the league and that in turn helped fuel the Marlies’ rise. But one of the less-heralded secrets to their success has been their ability to tap into Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s resources.

The Leafs have spent money to make the Marlies travel schedule less onerous. They’ve spent money to bring in top-end staff to develop and take care of their prospects. They’ve spent money on how they eat and how they train.
