October 19, 2005 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Toronto Marlies News Release

The Toronto Marlies today announced that player game-worn jerseys are currently available for sale through auction on eBay - The World's Online Marketplace. The white sweaters were worn when the team made their home debut at Ricoh Coliseum on October 12, 2005 against the Syracuse Crunch. The bidding price for each individual jersey begins at $250 (all figures Canadian) while a minimum $5 increment is accepted for each bid thereafter. Fans interested in placing a bid can access the list of available jerseys by clicking a link while visiting - the official online home of the Marlies. Each jersey features a unique inaugural-game patch to the above right of the prominent Marlies' crest and will arrive via certified mail with an accompanying letter of authenticity.

The Marlies defeated the Crunch 5-2 on the strength of power-play goals by Carlo Colaiacovo, Brad Leeb, Staffan Kronwall and Brett Engelhardt. John Pohl scored the lone even-strength marker just past the midway point of the game to tie the contest at 2-2. The Marlies had trailed 2-0 until Pohl's second goal of the season at 11:14. Jean-Sebastien Aubin earned the win in goal by stopping 29 of 31 shots, including 17 in the third period.
