Ingram was the game's second star.

This was a really strong season for Syracuse in terms of both overall performance and the ability to develop a very young group of players in the process. It's a shame that may end up being tempered by the embarassment of being swept by a very deep and powerful Toronto Marlies club. Looking forward to next year the club will get yet another influx of high caliber youth like Boris Katchouk and Alex Barre-Boulet, among others. So, the success is sustainable, but Toronto remains a problematic adversary in the division to overcome.
