Checking in with Chocolate Town

  • The Hershey Bears (8-3-1) are tied with Hamilton and Bridgeport for the most points in the league.
  • Keith Aucoin was named AHL Player of the Month for October.
  • Aucoin now has 18 points in just 12 games (tied for first in the AHL).
  • Hershey is still tops in the AHL with 53 goals in 12 games.
  • Alexandre Giroux's 9 goals is good enough for second most in the league.
  • The Hershey Bears goaltending has struggled this season, allowing a league high 43 goals against.
  • On November 2, Hershey kicked off a season high five game road trip with a 4-3 loss against the Phantoms in the shootout.
  • This just in: I love the Oskar Osala (8-2-10), Mattheiu "Perry" Perreault (3-6-9), and Francois Bouchard (3-2-5) line.
  • Osala is fifth in the league with eight goals, and first in the league among all rookies.
