The Toronto Marlies return home to face the Laval Rocket in the first of three home games this week.

The two divisional rivals meet at Coca-Cola Coliseum for the first time this season. In their previous meeting in Laval earlier this season, the Rocket were victorious, shutting out the Marlies 5-0. The Marlies will be looking to flip the script on Wednesday night.

Some players to watch in this Wednesday matchup include Josh Ho-Sang, who currently leads the team with six goals and eight points. As well as, Semyon Der-Arguchintsev, the Marlies leading rookie, who scored his first two goals of the season last weekend, including the game winner on Sunday. On the Rocket side, Laurent Dauphin leads the way with 12 points.

Puck drops at 7:00 PM EST on Leafs Nation Network and AHLTV. Fans can also follow along on Twitter (@TorontoMarlies) for game updates.
