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 »

Jaskin returns "home" in time for Wolves postseason
The timing couldn’t have been better for Dmitrij Jaskin to rejoin the Chicago Wolves last week.

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. Rattie’s performance in the two games was rather nondescript–no points,... Read more »

Longpre snaps long scoring drought in Wolves win
It took Nathan Longpre quite a while to get his name back on the Chicago Wolves scoresheet. Twenty games, in fact.
