Agostino Departs Wolves for NHL


April 1, 2017

The Chicago Wolves announced Saturday that left wing Kenny Agostino has been recalled from loan by the St. Louis Blues under emergency conditions.

The 24-year-old has appeared in 63 games for Chicago this season and leads the American Hockey League in both scoring (79) and assists (57). He owns a 17-point lead on the league’s second-best scorer and has churned out 20 multi-point performances this season.

Agostino is having a breakout year, surpassing his previous personal-bests in points (57) and assists (34). He’s also one shy of tying his career-high in goals (23).

For the Wolves, Agostino is one of just four players since the 2007-08 season to surpass the 70-point benchmark. He joins Darren Haydar (74, 2010-11), Jason Krog (75, 2009-10; 2010-11) and current teammate Brett Sterling (71, 2007-08). The New Jersey native is also a point shy of hitting the 80-point plateau. If he does, he would be the first Chicago skater since Krog during the 2007-08 season – with 112 points – to accomplish the feat.

With 25 points through 14 games in the month of December, Agostino was named the CCM/AHL Player of the Month. In that span, he was held scoreless just once and registered six multi-point performances. Agostino also closed out the year on Dec. 31 with a five-point performance – the first for an AHL player this season – that included four goals and an assist. He joined Dan Currie, Nigel Dawes and Steve Larouche as the only players in the Wolves’ 23-year history to score four goals in one game.

The Wolves will continue regular-season action Saturday (April 1) against the reigning Calder Cup champion Cleveland Monsters at Allstate Arena. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m., and the game will be broadcast on CW50. The first 5,000 fans will receive a set of Wolves trading cards, courtesy of Vienna Beef.
