Wolf Pack Weekly, January 13-19

Jan 13, 2020

The Wolf Pack (23-9-2-5, 53 pts.) passed the halfway point of their season this past week, stretching a winning streak to a season-high six games with wins Wednesday night at Hershey (2-1) and Friday night at home vs. Charlotte (6-3), before seeing the run end with a 3-0 defeat at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday night.  Team leading scorer Vinni Lettieri (15-17-32 in 39 GP) scored the winning goal in Wednesday’s game with 53.9 seconds left in the third period, and then put up his first career four-point effort as a pro Friday, with a goal and three assists.  Adam Huska was the winning goaltender in both victories, stopping 54 out of 58 total shots, and now is on a personal pro-best streak of three straight winning decisions.

This week:

The Wolf Pack play three road games this week, completing a stretch of four straight away from home.  The Wolf Pack and the Utica Comets will meet twice in Utica, Wednesday night and Friday night.  Faceoff for both of those contests is 7:00.  Then the Wolf Pack will head to Hershey on Saturday night for a 7:00 game, their last of three visits on the season to Chocolatetown.


Wednesday, January 15 at the Utica Comets (Vancouver) at the Adirondack Bank Center at the Utica Memorial Auditorium, 7:00 PM

  • This is the second meeting of the season between the Wolf Pack and the Comets.  In the first, January 4 at the XL Center, the Wolf Pack put a team season-high 40 shots on net, and got a goal and an assist from Phil DiGiuseppe, in defeating Utica, 3-1.
  • The Comets (22-13-2-2, 48 pts.) have at least a standings point in eight of their last 11 games (7-3-1-0), and have moved past Rochester and into first place in the North Division.
  • Rookie goaltender Michael DiPietro made 37 saves for the Comets in their 3-1 loss to the Wolf Pack January 4 in Hartford, and AHL points leader Reid Boucher (22-20-42 in 34 GP) had the only Utica goal in that game.
