Team Building: The 2017-18 Chicago Wolves


June 29, 2017

Chicago Wolves General Manager Wendell Young talks about building the 2017-18 roster while working around obstacles like NHL Expansion Draft and a new coaching staff.

When you’re scouting potential free agents, how early does the process start and what all is involved?

With the Wolves and Vegas working together, what has been the reception from free agents?

In that vein, how does the Wolves hockey operations staff and the Vegas hockey operations staff work to identify players who can help the Wolves win?

What is it like trying to build a roster almost from scratch? Has that changed the way you spend some of your time?

At present, Bryce Gervais is the only player on a Wolves contract returning from last season. How did you evaluate his contribution to the team?

Western Hockey League scoring champ Tyler Wong signed a Wolves contract in May. What does your scout’s eye see in him?

What’s the ideal mix of veterans, entry-level prospects and Wolves signees for our team?

What have you and Rocky Thompson been working on since he was named head coach?
