Adam Scheel’s big weekend resulted in a big honor for the Wolves goaltender.
The American Hockey League announced Monday that Scheel has been selected as the Howies Hockey Tape/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Jan. 14, 2024.
Scheel backstopped the Wolves to a weekend sweep of the Stars in Texas, turning aside a combined 56 of 58 shots against his former team.
On Saturday night, Scheel made 22 saves as the Wolves skated to a 3-1 victory and the Lakewood, Ohio, native followed that with a 34-save effort during the Wolves’ 4-1 win over Texas on Sunday.
The 24-year-old Scheel is 6-7-3 with a 2.76 goals-against average and .910 save percentage in 17 appearances with the Wolves this season. He joined the Wolves after two seasons in the Dallas Stars organization and has a record of 21-24-11 with a 2.98 GAA, a .905 save percentage and one shutout in 62 career AHL games with Texas and the Wolves.
Next up: The Wolves travel to Rockford to face the IceHogs on Friday night (7 p.m.).
