Hartford, CT, October 26, 2014 – The Hartford Wolf Pack (4-2-1-0) snapped a two-game losing streak when they defeated the Norfolk Admirals (2-5-0-0) 3-0 Sunday afternoon at the XL Center.

Mackenzie Skapski recorded a shutout in his first career AHL start, with 16 saves on the night.

“A shutout is a shutout,” said Hartford Coach Ken Gernander. “I think one or two timely saves kind of kills the other team’s energy or momentum and can certainly build some momentum for our guys on the bench.” Continue reading

Worcester, MA, October 21, 2014 – Rookie defenseman Mat Bodie’s first pro goal, scored with 17.9 seconds left in the third period, gave the Hartford Wolf Pack a 5-4 win over the Worcester Sharks Tuesday night at the DCU Center.

The Wolf Pack let a 4-2 lead slip away in the third, but with the game seemingly headed for overtime, Tommy Hughes and Danny Kristo combined to get the puck to Bodie, who moved to the left-wing faceoff dot and launched a shot that went high into the net behind Worcester goaltender Troy Grosenick, a former teammate, and roommate, of Bodie’s at Union College.  Continue reading
