Andrew Aggozino 
In the Wolves’ 5-4 overtime setback against the Milwaukee Admirals in Amtrak Rivalry competition on Nov. 9, the 25-year-old registered his first two goals of the season. The first knotted the game at two with under five minutes to go in the middle frame, Agozzino sliced through the Admirals’ defense and ripped the puck up under the crossbar to tie the game at two. The tally was Agozzino’s first of the season. Agozzino recorded his second marker of the game on a short-handed 2-on-1 rush with center Alex Friesen to give the Wolves a 3-2 lead at 6:41 of the third session.

Brad Hunt
The American Hockey League’s top-scoring defenseman with 4 goals and 10 assists for 14 points, the 28-year-old picked up three of those points (G, 2A) in the last week. In the Wolves’ 5-4 overtime setback against the Milwaukee Admirals on Nov. 9, Hunt nabbed 2 assists setting up center Ivan Barbashev’s team-leading sixth goal and Magnus Paajarvi’s third of the season. In Saturday’s 4-2 loss against the Cleveland Monsters, Hunt opened scoring at 13:50 of the first period with one-timer off feed from Ty Rattie.

Magnus Paajarvi
The 25-year-old wing’s contributions on the scoresheet continued last week with 2 goals through three games. Most recently, Paajarvi scored in the Wolves’ 2-1 setback against the Cleveland Monsters on Nov. 11. He netted his third goal of the season in Chicago’s 5-4 overtime loss against the Milwaukee Admirals. The Sweden native has appeared in eight games this season with the Chicago Wolves and has registered at least a point in all but three of them. Paajarvi is also one of two center Ivan Barbashev is the other of the team’s most gentlemanly players, logging zero penalty minutes so far this season.

WOLF TRACKS

Guess Who’s Back? | On Sunday, the Wolves recalled forward Emerson Clark from loan to the Tulsa Oilers (ECHL). The 23-year-old has contributed 6 goals, 6 assists, 57 penalty minutes and a +5 plus/minus rating in 14 games this season for Tulsa. Through 167 career ECHL games, Clark has registered 45 goals, 39 assists and 626 penalty minutes. In 29 games of the 2015-16 season with Chicago, he contributed 2 goals, 5 assists and 62 penalty minutes while playing on a professional tryout contract (PTO). The Whitby, Ontario, native made his Chicago and American Hockey League debuts on Feb. 13 and scored his first AHL goal in his second game.

Get Shorty | The Chicago Wolves have three short-handed tallies this season courtesy of forwards Andrew Agozzino and Wade Megan. Megan – 2015-16’s American Hockey League leader in short-handed tallies with 7 – is tied for first among this season’s league skaters and leads the Wolves with 2 shorties. His goals came in Saturday’s 4-2 setback against the defending Calder Cup champion Cleveland Monsters and on Oct. 22 in the Wolves’ 4-2 win over the San Antonio Rampage at AT&T Center. Agozzino nabbed his lone short-handed goal during Nov. 9’s 5-4 overtime loss against the Milwaukee Admirals.

Salute to Military Families | The Chicago Wolves will host their third Salute to Military Families Night, presented by Illinois Lottery Veterans Cash Ticket, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. The evening honors current and former servicemen and women and their families for selfless dedication to their country.
