Malone Joins Wolves; Copley Goes to Washington

February 28, 2017

The Chicago Wolves announced Tuesday that center Brad Malone has been loaned to the club by the St. Louis Blues (NHL).

Malone comes to the Wolves following an NHL trade between the Blues and Washington Capitals. As part of the deal, Wolves goaltender Pheonix Copley was recalled from loan by the Blues and sent to Washington — his original NHL organization.

Prior to joining the Wolves, Malone skated in 52 games and collected 20 points (7G, 13A) during the 2016-17 season for the Hershey Bears (AHL).

Selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the fourth round, 105th overall, of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, the 27-year-old Malone has skated six seasons between the AHL and NHL. At the NHL level, Malone has skated in 176 games and collected 30 points (13G, 17A) with the Avalanche and Carolina Hurricanes.

The 2016-17 season marks Malone’s fourth in the AHL. The Miramichi, New Brunswick, native has played 217 AHL games and registered 95 points (36G, 59A).

Malone was the first New Brunswick native to skate for the University of North Dakota men’s hockey program. Through four seasons with UND, Malone appeared in 161 games and recorded 85 points (33G, 52A). Malone was the fourth player in the program history to amass 75 career points and 275 career penalty minutes.

The Wolves – with Malone on deck – continue their six-game homestand against the reigning Calder Cup champion Cleveland Monsters on Saturday (March 4). Puck drop for American Girl Night is set for 7 p.m., and the first 5,000 children into Allstate Arena receive a doll outfit. The contest will be broadcast on CW50 in the Chicago area.
