TOP LINE

Kenny Agostino
The Morristown, New Jersey, native got right back on the horse this week and is on another point streak, averaging two points per game through three contests. With three assists in the Wolves’ 8-4 Amtrak Rivalry win over the Milwaukee Admirals on Dec. 22, Agostino took sole possession of the AHL scoring lead with nine goals and 25 assists for 34 points through 30 games. Through his last three games, Agostino has a +2 plus/minus rating, five shots on net and eight penalty minutes.

Vince Dunn
The rookie defenseman is riding a three-game point streak in which he has two goals and an assist for a point-per-game average. The 20-year-old is the Wolves’ leading scorer among the team’s active defensemen with five goals and seven assists for 12 points through 26 games. Those totals also place him No. 8 in scoring among American Hockey League rookie blueliners. The Wolves’ youngest skater logged a +2 plus/minus rating, 12 shots on net and 17 penalty minutes — all 17 coming in the Wolves’ last game against their in-state rival, the Rockord IceHogs, on Dec. 21 — in his last three games.

Wade Megan
The former Boston University Terriers captain was recalled from loan by the St. Louis Blues last week and made his NHL debut on Dec. 22. The 26-year-old made the most of his premiere as he scored his first NHL goal. On the rush with Ryan Reaves, Megan chipped a Reaves rebound over Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy to give St. Louis a 2-0 lead at 14:43 of the first period. This season with the Chicago Wolves, Megan has produced a team-leading 13 goals and 11 assists for 24 points — third-best among Wolves skaters — through 28 games. He was returned on loan to Chicago on Dec. 23.

Wolf Tracks

Husso Returns | On Dec. 25, the St. Louis Blues (NHL) reassigned rookie netminder Ville Husso to the Chicago Wolves. In 12 games this season with the Missouri Mavericks (ECHL), Husso has posted a 3-4-1 record with a 3.54 goals-against average and .902 save percentage. The 21-year-old opened the season with the Wolves and appeared in two games for Chicago. He compiled a 1-1-0 record — including his first victory in a North American professional league — as well as a .914 save percentage and 2.53 goals-against average. The move comes on the heels of a one-game suspension for Jordan Binnington that he incurred during the Wolves’ 6-2 setback against their in-state foe, the Rockford IceHogs, on Dec. 21.

Animal Adoption Awareness Jerseys | In conjunction with the Chicago Wolves’animal-adopt-jersey-header ongoing efforts to raise awareness for animal adoption throughout the Chicago area, the team will wear specialty jerseys during three January home games — Jan. 7, 11 and 21. The red and white sweaters will be available through several auctions and raffles during the games and after the three-game stint. The fundraisers will be highlighted by a Golden Ticket Raffle in which only 50 tickets will be sold for the chance to win one of Jordan Binnington’s animal adoption jerseys. Proceeds will benefit Chicago Wolves Charities and animal adoption-related charities. For more information about the jersey auctions and raffles, as well as other Chicago Wolves Charities initiatives.

Julianna Zobrist Postgame Concert | Following the Feb. 4 Illinois Lottery Cup game between the Chicago Wolves and Rockford IceHogs, fans are invited to stay for a postgame concert with Julianna Zobrist, presented by Judson University. The 32-year-old Christian pop singer sang “God Bless America” before Game 4 of the 2016 World Series at Wrigley Field.

Holiday Gift Packs This winter, the Chicago Wolves are offering the Howliday Pack: an open- dated ticket package for remaining regular- season games. The 10-voucher package also includes a Wolves winter hat, commemorative puck, winter scarf and 30-minute Gameworks play card. The vouchers are redeemable in any increment for any remaining 2016-17 regular- season home games.
