History
2005-06: While playing high school hockey in Minnesota for the Warroad Warriors, he led the team in scoring with 30 points (9G, 21A) in 23 total games. In the season prior to that, he managed to eclipse 48 points (23G, 25A) in 31 games with Warroad. Calgary would select Aaron Marvin in the third round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, 89th overall.

2006-07: The Tri-City Storm center netted a goal and four points in 13 games with the club. He also graduated from Warroad MN-High School (two time All-Section and All-Conference winner). 

2007-08: This marked Marvin’s rookie season with St. Cloud State (WCHA), which saw the center pot three goals and 13 points through 40 games. He earned the William Radovich Award as St. Clouds Most Improved Player.

2008-09: In his sophomore season with St. Cloud State (WCHA), Marvin tallied a career-high 10 goals and 27 points through 38 games. He was nominated to the All-WCHA Academic Team for his efforts.

2009-10: Marvin had a difficult junior season at St. Cloud state as an Alternate Captain of the team. The big, hardworking center made a bad reputation with his reckless play, including dirty, dangerous hits to Chay Genoway (MIN) and Blake Geoffrion (NAS) this season. He scored only five goals with 11 assists and a solid plus four rating while taking 73 PIMs in 39 WCHA games.

2010-11: Marvin finished his senior season of a four-year career at St. Cloud State as the team’s captain. He scored nine goals (tied for fifth on the team) along with six assists and a weak minus 11 rating in 37 WCHA games. The physical forward showed solid leadership and good discipline by reducing his penalties minutes down to just twelve for the season.  Marvin signed an amateur try-out contract with Abbotsford after his final college season, appearing in three games with zero points. He has not yet signed an entry level contract for next season with Calgary.

Talent Analysis
Marvin is a combination of finesse, speed and power while effectively using his large frame, strength and long arm span to his advantage. He has fiercely competitive nature which drives his excellence of playing along the boards or in the corners. The superb playmaking centerman has good on-ice vision, solid offensive skills and possesses a rocket of a shot with a quick release. The aggressive fore-checking forward must control his physical play while continuing to improve the defensive side of his game at the professional level.
Future
Marvin will need to impress the Flames at training camp as he does not as of yet have an entry level contract and could be released. It is most likely that the Flames will assign the physical forward to the AHL Abbottsford Heat for the season to adjust to the professional level and the grueling schedule.
