TOP LINE

Samuel Blais
The 20-year-old registered 2 points in Saturday’s 5-0 victory over the Iowa Wild. He was one of four rookies — Conner Bleackley (A), Vince Dunn (A) and Bryce Gervais (2G) were the others — to account for 6 of the Chicago Wolves’ 13 points in the contest. The Montmagny, Quebec, native nabbed both a goal and an assist. On the rush in at 17:34 of the middle frame, Alex Friesen fed Blais a cross-slot pass for a wrist shot that found the back of the net to double the Wolves’ lead. Then, at 6:20 of the third period, Blais dropped a pass back to a trailing Jordan Schmaltz for a shot. Gervais crashed the net and the puck went off his body into the net give the Wolves the 4-0 lead.


Bryce Gervais
During Saturday’s 5-0 win against the Iowa Wild, the rookie forward recorded the second two-game performance of his career (April 8, 2016, at Grand Rapids). At 6:20 of the final frame, fellow rookie Samuel Blais dropped a pass back to a trailing Jordan Schmaltz for a wrist shot. Gervais crashed the net for the rebound and the puck went off his body and in to extend the Wolves’ lead to 4-0. Then, in the last five minutes of the game, rookie center Conner Bleackley whipped the puck out of the left offensive corner to Emerson Clark near the slot for a shot. Again, Gervais crashed the net and wrangled the rebound for his second marker of the evening.


Jordan Schmaltz
The 23-year-old defenseman made his 2016-17 season debut and tallied 2 points over the weekend. On Friday, Nov. 18, against the Iowa Wild at Wells Fargo Arena, wing Kenny Agostino fed Schmaltz at the top of the left circle for a laser wrist shot that pulled the Wolves within 3-2 at 7:23 of the third period. In Saturday’s 5-0 home win over Iowa, the Verona, Wisconsin, native nabbed an assist as he wristed a trailing pass from rookie Samuel Blais on net. Bryce Gervais crashed the net, wrangled the rebound and extended the Wolves’ lead to 4-0.
