Tale of the Tape: Jan. 22


Friday, Jan. 22, 6:00 p.m. Bojangles Coliseum

Chicago embarks on the second half of the AHL season with a two-game series at Charlotte that starts tonight at the Bojangles’ Coliseum.

The Wolves outscored the Checkers 12-5 in a pair of home wins back in October. Chicago defeated Charlotte 9-5 on Oct. 17 to set a season-high mark for goals. A week later, the Wolves posted a 3-0 win behind a 23- save shutout from PHEONIX COPLEY.

The Wolves have won four straight versus the Checkers and captured eight of the past nine meetings dating to the 2013-14 season.

Charlotte enters tonight’s game as one of the hottest teams in the AHL. The Checkers are on pace for a 100-point season, having won three straight games and seven of their last eight. At the same time, Charlotte has managed to collect points in nine of 10 games, going 8-1- 0-1 during that span.

By The Numbers

9: PAT CANNONE has reached 30 points in a season for the eighth time in nine years since arriving at Miami (Ohio) in 2007. CANNONE’s only sub-30 season came with Binghamton in 2012- 13.

18: The Wolves have played the third-fewest road games (18) of any team in the AHL, joining eight other teams at that number. Only Ontario (14) and San Jose (16) have played fewer road contests.

105: Number of days (from start of the season) it took for Chicago to make its first trip to Charlotte – the last Central Division building the Wolves have visited.

.875: Chicago’s winning percentage when scoring the game’s first goal (14-2-0-0).

Player Spotlight

#27 Jake Chelios – Defenseman 

The Chicago Wolves will get reacquainted with a familiar face tonight in Jake Chelios. The defenseman, who had a brief stint with the Chicago Wolves and the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye in 2013-14 at the conclusion of his senior year at Michigan State and spent his rookie season last year with Chicago and the ECHL’s Kalamazoo Wings, has been enjoying some success with the Checkers.

Chelios has put up 21 points in the first 38 games of the season, good for third on the team overall. The blue liner has been especially hot of late, recording 11 points in his last 12 games and helping leadl the team to their best stretch of the season.

At the midway point of the season, Chelios has already set career highs in goals, assists and points.

#24 Jordan Schmaltz – Defenseman

Prior to last weekend, JORDAN SCHMALTZ was one of four Wolves players to appear in every game this season. Now he is the only one who can make that claim. Injuries and reassignments to three of his teammates left SCHMALTZ as the lone player to see action in all 38 games.

SCHMALTZ’s perfect attendance record should come as no surprise, as the rookie defensemen hasn’t missed a game in three seasons – dating to his sophomore season at North Dakota – a streak of 121 consecutive games.

The Veronia, Wisconsin, native contributes at both ends of the ice, factoring in four shutouts this season while chipping in with 18 points (3G, 15A). His eight power- play assists ranks second on the team while his shootout goal versus Texas on Dec. 17 will go down as a highlight reel moment.
