TALE OF THE TAPE: FEB. 23


Tuesday, Feb. 23,11:00 a.m. Allstate Arena

Chicago concludes a four-game homestand –- a stretch that began just 112 hours before today’s start –- with an 11 a.m. puck drop against Grand Rapids. The Wolves were triumphant in their previous School-Day appearance as they earned 4-3 shootout win over Texas on Dec. 17.

This is the seventh year the Wolves have hosted students and teachers and the team owns an 8-3-0-0 record on School-Days.

The Wolves and Griffins have battled for 20 consecutive seasons and the 125 meetings are the second-most for the Wolves against any opponent — trailing only the Amtrak Rivalry with Milwaukee.

TY RATTIE and PAT CANNONE are the biggest point producers against the Griffins over the last three seasons. RATTIE owns 12 points (9G, 3A) in 20 career games while CANNONE sports 9 points (5G, 4A) in 19 contests. CANNONE recorded a hat trick in his last game against Grand Rapids (Jan. 17 at Van Andel Arena).

Grand Rapids made its last appearance at Allstate Arena some 94 days ago. Coach Todd Nelson’s squad posted a 2-1 decision for its third straight victory as part of a win streak that reached 15 games.
Chicago arrives north of the border to close out a 4-game road swing this weekend in Winnipeg. This weekend’s series marks Chicago’s last visit to the MTS Centre for the regular season.

By The Numbers

0: Number of power-play goals allowed by Chicago this season against Grand Rapids. In three meetings versus the Griffins, the Wolves are 14 for 14 on the penalty kill.

23: YANNICK VEILLEUX turned 23 years-old Monday.

.750: The Wolves’ all-time winning percentage in morning games (12-4-0-0).

#12 Pat Cannone – Center

PAT CANNONE struck for two goals in a 3-2 shootout win over Charlotte on Sunday to run the Wolves’ record to 12-1-0-1 (.893) when the captain scores in a game. It was the third multiple-goal game for CANNONE, who took over the team goal- scoring lead (19). The sixth-year pro has matched his best season’s output in terms of goals and points, accomplishing the feat in 26 fewer games than when he played for Binghamton in 2011-12.

CANNONE leads the team in seven offensive categories: goals(19), assists(24), points (43), plus/minus (+14), power-play goals (5; tied with JORDAN CARON), game-winning goals (5), and shooting percentage (18.1).

Now in his third season in Chicago, CANNONE has moved into the Top 20 in Wolves all-time scoring with 124 points. He needs 11 more to overtake Tim Bergland for 19th place.

#8 Anthony Mantha – Left Wing 

Mantha Madness, indeed.

Left wing Anthony Mantha is responsible for four goals (4-1—5) in the last three games. He recorded his first career hat trick – the fifth different Griffin Tomas Jurco, Colin Campbell, Eric Tangradi, and Mitch Callahan to score three goals in a game this season — and a career-best four points in a 4-1 victory against the first-place Milwaukee Admirals on Feb. 17.

Through 46 games, Mantha’s numbers (16-18—34) already better last year’s rookie stats when he skated in 62 games (15-18—33). The Quebec native finished ninth among Griffins scorers with 33 points (15-18—33) in 62 regular season games last season.
