The Hartford Wolf Pack (New York Rangers) will come to 'The Barn' looking to end Hershey's 9 game winning streak.
- Hershey leads the AHL with 37 points (18-5-0 OTL-1 SOL) and has not lost since November 9th. Hartford (10-10-1 OTL-2 SOL) is tied for last place in the Atlantic Division, but just six points out of first place.
- The Bears are 9-2 at home (best in the league) and own the third best home power play rate at 26%.
- Hershey recalled Johann Kroll from South Carolina of the ECHL. Kroll played his college hockey with Sean Collins and will be playing in his fifth AHL game.
- Hartford is 7-1 when leading after two periods.
- The Wolf Pack are led by Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau (11-12-23). Originally drafted by the Mighty Ducks in 2001, Parenteau broke his wrist in Anaheim's 2005 training camp, and was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks a few months after the injury. After making his NHL debut in the 2006-2007 season, Parenteau was traded to the Rangers in October of last season.
Artem Anisimov (really excited to watch this guy)
Bob Sanguinetti (great offensive defense man)
Dane Byers (here's a fight versus Mr. Bahamas himself)
And whoever else is impressive.
Here is a preview of PA Parenteau:
