SCHOENBORN ONE AWAY FROM 50: After chipping in a goal and assist in Saturday's win over South Carolina, Alex Schoenborn's next point will give him 50 in his career. The forward has 19 goals and 30 assists in 128 career games split between the ECHL and American Hockey League.
LEBLANC ENJOYING RESURGENT MARCH: After missing much of the month of February, Chris LeBlanc has picked his game up in the month of March. The second-year forward has nine points through 13 games, and has chipped in three goals over his last five. LeBlanc enters today's game with a two-game goal streak.
