TOP LINE

Kenny Agostino
Through three games last week, the former Yale University Bulldog compiled a goal and six assists to extend his point streak to 12 points (3G, 9A) in six games. On Dec. 7, Agostino became the third American Hockey League player of the season to collect four assists in a game; he is the first Wolves player to accomplish the feat since Jason Krog on April 12, 2008, as part of Krog’s five-point night (G, 4A) to help the Wolves overcome their in-state rivals, the Rockford IceHogs, 7-1, in Rockford. In that Dec. 7 matchup, Agostino registered two power-play points to push his man-advantage point total to 11, which is second-best among Wolves skaters.

Pheonix Copley
The North Pole, Alaska, native backstopped the Chicago Wolves for both of the squad’s victories. In two contests, the 24-year-old made 56 saves and only gave up three goals for a .949 save percentage and a 1.50 goals-against average. This two-game stretch marks Copley’s first back-to-back contests since Nov. 19 and 22 a shutout against Iowa and a 4-3 loss to Charlotte. Copley has won four of his last five starts for Chicago.

Brad Hunt
The 28-year-old defenseman only appeared in one game last week with the Chicago Wolves, but he quietly registered a goal and two assists in the 6-5 overtime setback against the Grand Rapids Griffins on Dec. 7. The next day, Hunt was recalled from loan by the St. Louis Blues (NHL) and made his debut with the squad on Dec. 9 against the New Jersey Devils, and then stayed in the Blues lineup for their Dec. 11 game versus the Minnesota Wild. Through two NHL games, Hunt has two assists, a +2 plus/minus rating and three shots on goal.

Wolf Tracks

The Rookies are All RightThe 2016-17 rookie class keeps producing for the Chicago Wolves. Through three games last week, they collected four goals and four assists for eight points. Rookie defenseman Vince Dunn led the charge with a two-goal performance on Saturday, Dec. 11, in the Wolves’ 5-2 victory over the Milwaukee Admirals. The 20-year-old is also the Wolves’ leading rookie scorer with nine points (3G, 6A) through 21 games. Samuel Blais (A), Conner Bleackley (A), Bryce Gervais (2G, A) and Justin Selman (A) were the other rookies who registered points this past week.

Epilepsy Awareness Raffle and Night | In conjunction with Epilepsy Awareness Night, the Chicago Wolves are hosting a raffle that features unique prize packages and experiences. Packages include a pregame Chicago Cubs experience with Cubs and epilepsy-raffle-twitterWolves national anthem singer Wayne Messmer or a Wolves luxury-box experience with Wolves general manager Wendell Young and legendary NHL goaltender Martin Brodeur among other experiences. Tickets are $10 each and can be added to the package of choice. The winning raffle tickets will be drawn at the end of second intermission on Dec. 17, during the Wolves’ annual Epilepsy Awareness Night, presented by Heidenhain. That evening, the first 2,500 fans through the doors of Allstate Arena will receive a T-shirt courtesy of Heidenhain. Raffle tickets can be purchase online.
