Wolves find the power in their power play

Wolves find the power in their power play
No matter what the Wolves tried in the regular season, nothing seemed capable of resuscitating their morbid power play. Perhaps all it took was for the regular season to end, and to begin again at 0-for-0. The Wolves went 7-for-27 (25.9 percent) with the man-advantage in their opening-round series against the Rochester Americans. They’ll likely... Read more »

Looking back at Wolves season ahead of Calder Cup opener

Looking back at Wolves season ahead of Calder Cup opener
In what has to be one of the more improbable feats in the AHL this year, the Wolves managed to chase down the Grand Rapids Griffins to win the Midwest Division on the season’s final day. The Griffins had spent the previous 167 days in first place, only to see it slip away with two... Read more »

Rattie, Cundari back in Wolves fold, Chelios shines in debut

Rattie, Cundari back in Wolves fold, Chelios shines in debut
It was just a taste–maybe more like a sip–but Wolves rookie Ty Rattie is grateful for his first NHL experience. Rattie made his Blues debut in Dallas last Friday, and played again in the Blues’ season-finale Sunday against Detroit before rejoining the Wolves on Monday.

Return to Wolves lineup brings relief for Andronov
The Chicago Wolves locker room area at Allstate Arena wasn’t the happiest of places Sunday evening, not after the team lost its second game in as many days to the Texas Stars.

Baseball skills pay off for Wolves' Rattie

Baseball skills pay off for Wolves' Rattie
A few years ago, Chicago Wolves rookie Ty Rattie had to make a decision about his athletic future — hockey or baseball.
