The Chicago Wolves announced on Sunday that forward Brandon McNally has signed a professional tryout contract with the club.
The 26-year-old Massachusetts native joins the Wolves from the ECHL’s Cincinnati Cyclones. McNally is in his first full season with the Cyclones after being acquired via trade from the Utah Grizzlies during the 2016-17 campaign.
This season, McNally is sixth in team scoring with 10 goals and 21 assists for 31 points. A fan favorite in Cincinnati, he leads the team — and ranks 10th in the ECHL — with 137 penalty minutes. At the AHL level, McNally has skated parts of three seasons (2014-17) and registered 16 points (9G, 7A) in 61 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs, St. John’s IceCaps and San Diego Gulls.
McNally will wear No. 12 in his Wolves debut Sunday afternoon.
The Wolves are in Winnipeg to face the Central Division-leading Moose in the second of back-to-back games north of the border on Sunday, Feb. 25. The Wolves are searching for a victory following Saturday’s 2-0 setback. Puck drop is slated for 2 p.m. and the game will stream on AHLLive.com.
