"Game Time " PROSPECT SUNDAY for November 29 2015

It's official, folks... your Chicago Wolves are slumping. Badly. 1-4-1 in their last six games, and outscored 18-10 in that stretch. The sole ray of hope in all of this, is that bottom-six forward prospects have been picking up the slack while the more high-profile prospects falter. Details ahead...

Nov. 22, 2015


ROSEMONT, IL --- The Chicago Wolves produced a pair of third-period goals to rally for a 2-1 victory over the Iowa Wild on Sunday in front of 12,617 at Allstate Arena.
Forward Eriah Hayes tied the game and right wing Jacob Doty delivered the game-winner for the Wolves (9-3-1-1), who earned head coach John Anderson’s 600th regular-season win with the franchise in 13-plus seasons.
"If you coach long enough, you’re going to get there eventually," Anderson said. "I’m glad it turned out this way. Everybody wants to win 10-0, but this was 2-1 and a hard-fought win. It brings a little bit more character and appreciation for how hard it is to win."


Nov. 27, 2015


ROCKFORD, IL --- The Chicago Wolves managed a season-low 15 shots as they fell 3-1 to the Rockford IceHogs on Friday night in Illinois Lottery Cup action at the MetroCentre.
Right wing Cody Beach scored the lone goal for the Wolves (9-4-1-1), who missed a chance to regain first place in the American Hockey League’s Central Division. Chicago entered the game averaging a league-best 9.9 penalty minutes per game, but was assessed 72 penalty minutes Friday.
Rockford (12-4-1-2) opened the scoring at 13:49 of the first on Jeremy Morin’s shot from the goal line to the right of Wolves goaltender Jordan Binnington. The IceHogs’ first two attempts on the rush were parried by Binnington, but Morin zipped the puck toward the goal and banked it off Binnington’s skate into the goal as he slid toward the post to cut off the angle.
Chicago pulled even on Beach’s one-timer at 4:45 of the second. Spencer Asuchak and Jacob Doty battled for possession below the goal line and Doty claimed it along the right wall. Doty’s backhand pass set up Beach for a quick rocket from the top of the right circle that went between Rockford goaltender Michael Leighton’s skates.

ROSEMONT, IL --- San Antonio scored three times in the third period to snap a tie and claim a 4-1 win over the Chicago Wolves on Saturday night at Allstate Arena. Forward Jacob Doty scored for the Wolves (9-5-1-1), who have managed 5 goals in the last four games.
"I liked our lineup tonight," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "I thought we played well. Good enough to win, but also good enough to lose. The guys who aren’t scoring are going to have to figure out ways to do it. Get to the net. Put more shots on net. Whatever it takes."
The Wolves opened the scoring 5:12 into the game as Doty planted himself in front of San Antonio goaltender Calvin Pickard and whacked home the rebound after Pickard blocked Chris Butler’s blast from the left point. Cody Beach also earned an assist on the play.


PAW PRINTS: The Blues' top three prospects in Chicago -- forwards Ty Rattie and Ivan Barbashev, and defenseman Jordan Schmaltz -- have all hit the skids at the same time ... After scoring at a point-per-game pace through his first 11 games (3 G, 8 A), amassing a plus-2 mark and firing 20 shots on goal, Barbashev is scoreless in his last five games, with a minus-3 and just four shots on goal ... Rattie is scoreless with a minus-3 in his last four games, and Schmaltz has just one assist in his last four, with a minus-3 and just three shots on goal ... Defense prospect Tommy Vannelli has been a healthy scratch in four of the last five games, and would probably benefit from a brief reassignment to the Quad City Mallards to earn ice time and gain some confidence back ... Meanwhile, bottom-six grinders Beach and Doty combined for three goals on seven shots this week, added three assists between them, were a combined plus-6, and made their physical presence felt with a combined 37 penalty minutes.
