WOLVES HEADLINERS

  • Jacob Doty: The rookie right wing made the most of his ice time on Sunday, scoring the game-winner with a one-timer in the slot to earn No. 1 Star honors … DOTY’s goal came with 7:03 left on the clock and lifted Chicago to a 2-1 victory before 12,617 fans on Stars Wars Day at the Allstate Arena … It marked the first goal from DOTY since the season opener on Oct. 10.
  • Yannick Veilleux: The left wing from Quebec scored the team’s lone goal in a 2-1 loss to visiting Grand Rapids on Saturday, receiving No. 3 Star accolades … VEILLEUX responded the next night with an assist on Eriah Hayes’ third-period goal.
  • Jeremy Welsh: Placed a team-high six shots on goal in his return to the Wolves on Sunday … Weather played havoc on WELSH’s travel plans Saturday, forcing him to miss the game as it took more than seven hours to get from the gate at St. Louis’ airport to the gate at O’Hare … The Wolves are 9-1-1-1 (.833) when WELSH is in the lineup … The second-year center’s travels to South America are featured in the latest edition of Breakaway Magazine.
  • Eriah Hayes: Sparked Chicago’s come-from-behind win over Iowa with his first goal in a Wolves uniform … HAYES stuffed home a shot in the third period to foil goaltender Leland Irving’s shutout bid … HAYES turned in a productive week, taking 11 shots in three games and playing without a cage on his helmet for the first time since suffering three fractured bones in his face during a preseason intrasquad scrimmage.

WOLF TRACKS

Head coach JOHN ANDERSON recorded his 600th regular-season win with the Wolves on Sunday. At the same time, ANDERSON notched his 400th AHL victory to become the fifth AHL coach to reach that achievement.

  • Two Wolves players rank among AHL offense leaders. Veteran Andre Benoit stands ninth in defensemen scoring with 11 points (G, 10A) while Ivan Barbashev occupies 12th place in rookie scoring with 11 points (3G, 8A).
  • Chicago averages a league-low 9.93 penalty minutes per game. The Wolves have served just 139 minutes in the sin bin, which is 30 fewer minutes than other team in the league.
  • The Wolves feature one of the top offenses in the AHL as they generate 3.50 goals per game –- fourth-best in the 30-team league. At the same time, Chicago ranks 11th in defense at 2.71 goals per contest.
  • Chicago is 6-0-0-0 when scoring first this season. The Wolves are 3-3-1-1 when their opponent scores first.

SAN ANTONIO SIGHTING

This weekend’s home series against San Antonio marks the Rampage’s lone appearance at Allstate Arena. It also closes out the season series between the Western Conference powerhouses. The Wolves won a pair of overtime games in the Alamo City three weeks ago.

  • Jordan Binnington made 18 saves to remain unbeaten at home (4-0-0)

Saturday, Nov. 21
