The Toronto Marlies shutout the Belleville Senators 8-0 on Friday night at Coca-Cola Coliseum.

That's the point of the messaging of, if you do things right and you play the way he has, he's around the puck and he wins his battles and he does the things that he needs to do to be successful.And then when it was on his stick, he was feeling it, and confidence is a huge thing. Happy for him.”

 

“It’s amazing,” William Villeneuve added about Tverberg’s game. “Ryan is always such a funny guy. Well liked around the locker room. He's really good. Think he's really underrated. He plays a lot of, plays in a lot of situations. Plays hard minutes and I think just really nice to see him getting rewarded tonight.”

 

Villeneuve added four assists, setting a new season high for points in a game. The Marlies also collectively scored four power play goals on Friday, extending a streak of five games with a power play goal.
