IceHogs Roll Wolves to Start the New Year
In their first game of 2022, the IceHogs skated away with a dominating 8-0 victory over the Wolves on Jan. 7 and get together for the first time since then this afternoon. IceHogs forward Lukas Reichel led the way with two goals and two assists for four points and goaltender Collin Delia made 30 saves for his first shutout of the season. Reichel is the first IceHogs skater to register a four-point game since Spencer Abbott netted two goals and two assists vs. Milwaukee on Apr. 7, 2015.
Regula Joins Reichel with Four-Point Magic on Saturday
In the IceHogs' last contest on Saturday, defenseman Alec Regula joined Reichel as the only two skaters with four-point performances this season and the first four-point games since Abbott's evening in 2015. Regula assisted on all for IceHogs goals in a 5-4 setback to the Monsters Saturday evening at BMO Harris Bank Center. Recap & Highlights
The Great Eight
The eight goals the IceHogs scored against the Wolves were the most since the IceHogs claimed an 8-3 win over Iowa on Feb. 8, 2014 and was just one shy of the team's all-time record (9, 4/19/13 at San Antonio, 9-4 Win). In the head-to-head series, it is the most goals the IceHogs have EVER scored against the Wolves and the most since taking a 7-4 win in Rockford on Nov. 3, 2019. The most goals the Wolves have ever scored against the IceHogs is also eight, set on Nov. 24, 2007 in an 8-3 setback in Rosemont, IL.
Taking Down the Top Dog

HOWEVER, when they meet the IceHogs, they are 2-3-0-1 with the IceHogs holding four of the Wolves' nine setbacks (three regulation losses, one shootout loss) this season.
