TALE OF THE TAPE: APRIL 12


Tuesday, April 12, 7:00 p.m. Bradley Center

The Wolves close out the 2015-16 season with three games this week, starting with tonight’s Amtrack Rivalry game against Milwaukee. Chicago is looking for its first win on Admirals ice this season, having gone 0-4-1-0 thus far.

No Wolves player has experienced more success against Milwaukee this season than TY RATTIE, who is averaging more than a point per game (1.22) while scoring 5 goals. Contributing from the blueline, ANDRE BENOIT has dished out 8 assists in 11 games versus the Ads.

Milwaukee clinched the Central Division title on Sunday and has a chance to finish first overall in the Western Conference. Goaltender Juuse Saros, who has faced Chicago eight times this season, was named to the AHL All-Rookie Team last week.

Tonight’s contest is also the last appearance for the Wolves at the Bradley Center. The Admirals move across the street next season to the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena — formerly known as the MECCA — and the team’s IHL home from 1977-1988.

In 119 games at the Bradley Center, Chicago has compiled a 53-53-4-4-5 record.

#74 Juuse Saros – Goaltender  

The Chicago Wolves’ season might be winding down, but the Admirals’ is ramping up. The Ads were recently crowned central division champs after winning their sixth straight game to increase their point streak to a season-high 12 games.

Juuse Saros has been instrumental in Milwaukee’s recent hot streak, as he has posted a 13-1 record in his last 14 decisions. Saros captured his 28th win on Sunday afternoon, the sixth most in a single-season in Admirals AHL history.

Nashville’s 2013 fourth-round draft pick was also recently named to the AHL’s All-Rookie team.
