Saturday, Feb. 13, 2:00 p.m. MTS Centre
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.
With just 29 games left in the season, the Wolves are in needs of wins to contend for a playoff spot. If the season were to end today, the Wolves would be on the outside looking in based on their .511 points percentage.
Manitoba is the team the Wolves have experienced the most success against this season, winning 5 of 6 games (5-0-1-0) for a .916 win percentage. Chicago has earned points in all 6 games, with their lone loss coming in overtime on Nov. 13. The Wolves have out-scored the Moose, 24-10, winning by a margin of 2-or-more goals each time.
The Moose posted their biggest win of the season last Saturday (Feb. 6), downing league-leader Toronto, 6-5, on Nick Petan’s overtime goal.
The Wolves have fared well on Canadian soil in recent years, compiling a 7-1 record in regular season play over the last 3 seasons. This includes road wins at Toronto and Hamilton (2013-14, 2014-15) and Abbotsford (2013-14) in addition to a split against Manitoba in mid-November.
By The Numbers
47: Rookie defenseman JORDAN SCHWALTZ is the only player to appear in all 47 games this season. He is looking to become the first Wolves player since Jordan Schroeder in 2011-12 to play in every regular season game.

92.8: The Wolves’ penalty-kill percentage (26-for-28) this season against the Moose.
