Chicago Wolves Insider: Hello, Glass and Roy
WE HAVE GLASS...AND ROY...AND HAGUE
AAs the Wolves head into a busy week with three games in four days, the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights have gifted the Wolves with some familiar faces.
Forward Cody Glass has joined the Wolves for the first time this season. The 20-year-old from Winnipeg, Manitoba, was instrumental in the Wolves' run to 2019 Calder Cup Finals as he notched 15 points (7G, 8A) in the team's 22 postseason contests. Glass made Vegas' roster in the preseason and posted five goals and seven assists in 37 games before suffering an injury on Jan. 4.
QUICK BUY: UPCOMING GAMES!
Center Nicolas Roy was reassigned to the Wolves on Sunday, marking his 23rd move since Oct. 1. The Amos, Quebec, native has notched 21 points (7G, 14A) in 26 appearances for the Wolves along with three goals and three assists in 19 games for Vegas.
Defenseman Nic Hague has been with the Wolves for the last two weeks and resumed last year's role as half of the blue line's top pairing. The 21-year-old spent most of the first four months of the season with Vegas, where he posted his first NHL goal and 10 assists in 38 games.
DAY OF SERVICE ON SATURDAY
The Chicago Wolves host their 11th Faith & Fellowship Night on Saturday, Feb. 15, when the Wolves take on the Grand Rapids Griffins at 7 p.m.

In partnership with the Salvation Army, the Wolves are helping to spread the message of goodness and giving by carrying out several service projects. Last year's event including blanket-making, food prep and medical supply kit preparation - all of which will be distributed to Chicagoans in need immediately. Everyone is encouraged to serve.

JOIN US FOR BREWS & BITES FEB. 18
While all Wolves fans 21-and-over should be ready to be a part of Craft Beer Night when the Wolves host the Milwaukee Admirals on Thursday, Feb. 13, they also should have their sights on another enjoyable event that allows Wolves fans to sample freshly brewed beer and delicious food while hanging out with their favorite Wolves - a group that features Oscar Dansk, Curtis McKenzie and Dylan Coghlan.
The fourth annual Brews and Bites fundraiser is Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Hofbrauhaus Chicago in Rosemont's Parkway Bank Park Entertainment District. The fundraiser includes raffle prizes and the chance to bid on one-of-a-kind auction items. Tickets can be reserved for a $45 donation by clicking here or calling 1-800-THE-WOLVES. Proceeds benefit Chicago Wolves Charities.
THIS SEASON'S FINAL FREE POSTGAME SKATE
After the Wolves take on the Grand Rapids Griffins on Saturday, Feb. 15, fans will be rewarded with a free postgame skate - presented by Wilmot Mountain - to conclude their hockey-filled night. Everyone planning to enjoy the final postgame skate this season should leave their blades in the car during the 7 p.m. contest. There'll be an opportunity to retrieve them once the game ends.
After winning the AHL's Goaltender of the Month award in December, Oscar Dansk nearly captured the honor again in January. Now he's off to a hot start in February as he recorded a 25-save shutout on Feb. 7 at Manitoba. The 25-year-old netminder has gone 13-1-2 in his last 16 appearances for the Wolves.
Forward Tye McGinn continued his impressive month of February as he notched an empty-net goal with less than two minutes remaining to seal the Wolves' 2-0 win over the Manitoba Moose on Feb. 7. The Fergus, Ontario, native has notched four goals and one assist in his last four appearances. McGinn leads the team with 14 goals.
Since defenseman Nic Hague's return to the Wolves on Jan. 31, the 21-year-old has notched one goal and two assists in his four appearances. The Kitchener, Ontario, native was an important part of the Wolves' 2018-19 season - recording 13 goals and 19 assists - and he has spent most of this season with Vegas (NHL).
