Frattin Leads Marlies To Calder Cup Finals

Matt Frattin’s Beast Mode has hit the Calder Cup Playoffs.

Frattin scored two goals to give the Toronto Marlies a 3-1 victory over the Oklahoma City Barons to clinch a spot in the Calder Cup Finals (Chris VandeVelde scored the lone goal for the Barons).

Frattin leads the AHL playoffs in goals with 10, and he was trending on Twitter in all of Canada after his two-goal performance in Game 3.

The Marlies will take on the Norfolk Admirals, who I believe are 39-3 in the last 42 games and big favorites to win the Calder Cup.

But the Maple Leafs put Frattin and Jake Gardiner, who are NHL players, in with the Marlies for the playoff run and they are 11-2 in the playoffs.

Frattin is being talked about as a leading candidate for MVP honors at this point.

    Is it common for NHL teams who aren’t in NHL playoffs to drop players down for AHL playoffs? Maybe give them some more ice time/skill development, but take away from other AHL guys?
