Chicago Wolves Earn Shootout Triumph

October 12, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Chicago Wolves News Release

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Gage Quinney's backhand score in the first round of the shootout sparked the Chicago Wolves to a 2-1 victory over the San Antonio Rampage on Saturday night at AT&T Center.

Rookie forward Lucas Elvenes scored in regulation for the Wolves (1-2-0-0) while Elmhurst native Garret Sparks stopped 32 of 33 shots in regulation and overtime along with all three shootout attempts by the Rampage (3-0-0-1).

Elvenes, a 20-year-old Angelholm, Sweden, native, scored 6:45 into the third to break a scoreless tie. San Antonio turned over the puck in its own end -- with help from Quinney lifting a Rampage player's stick. Elvenes rifled a shot from the slot past Rampage goaltender Adam Wilcox to give the Wolves a 1-0 lead.

San Antonio pulled even at 10:50 of the third when forward Nick Lappin knocked home a rebound. Former Wolves defenseman Jake Walman wriggled free for a blast from the right circle that Sparks rejected, but Lappin pounced on the rebound to make it 1-1.

Quinney was the only player to tally in the three-round shootout. Sparks (1-1-0) earned his first win in a Wolves uniform while Wilcox (0-0-1) finished with 31 saves.

The Wolves wrap up their road trip on Friday, Oct. 18, at Rockford before hosting the IceHogs in an Illinois Lottery Cup clash on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Allstate Arena. To get the economical 10-voucher Flex Pack, visit or call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
