March 3, 2009 The season is over for the Graz 99ers after their
seventh and final game loss in this years playoff round to Vienna.
It is unfortunate the 99ers were without Marc who is known to be a top
27, 2009 Marc goes in for surgery to repair a ligament torn in his
knee. A second MRI showed there was more damage to his knee than
was first suspected. Marc will be have his surgery tomorrow and it
will take 2 months of rehab.
15, 2009 The last regular season game produced a 2-1 victory over
League Champion Salzburg for the second time since Marc jointed the
99ers two months ago. But it proved to be a costly victory for
Marc and the 99ers. Marc took a low check from a Salzburg player
on the boards directly to his knees. Though the check didn't look
terrible, because it wasn't an open ice hit; it could be classified as a
dirty check. Marc knew right away something was wrong and a MRI
proved he has a torn MCL which will take about 6-8 weeks to heal
properly. This means Marc will not be available for the playoffs.
Marc scores 1 assist on the winning goal in overtime for a 2-1 victory
over Innsbruck in today's home game. Graz has now secured
a playoff spot with this win and moves further
ahead of Innsbruck and 2 points behind Jesenice for 6th position.
Marc scores 3 goals in a 4-1 victory over Ljubljana in today's home
game. Graz is now 3 points ahead of Innsbruck for 7th position and
are very close to securing a playoff spot. Pictures of Marc from
