Beast captain Brandon Marino signed a Professional Tryout Contract (PTO) in January with the Utica Comets, the AHL affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks and has since played five games with the team. Marino recorded his first ever AHL goal with the Comets on January 15 against the Syracuse Crunch. Not only did Marino’s goal help the Comets take a 3-1 win, he was awarded first star of the game. Prior to his call up, he has just one game of AHL experience with the Norfolk Admirals in 2012-13.

Blueliner Jeremie Blain was also called up in January to the Chicago Wolves, AHL affiliate of the St. Louis Blues. Like Marino, Blain has suited up for five games with the Wolves, in one of which he scored his first ever AHL goal. At the time of his call up, his 12 power play assists were the second-highest total in the ECHL and his 20 assists was the second-highest total recorded by an ECHL defenceman this season.  



The Brampton Beast’s AHL affiliate, the St. John’s IceCaps, are currently in playoff contention, tied for sixth place in the Eastern Conference. The IceCaps have been picking up points as of late as they now have seven points in their last five games. Their next game is Friday, January 29 against the Portland Pirates.
