ICE CHIPS: Garry Nunn - Rampage Forward
The Rampage offense has seen a spark over the last few games thanks to Garry Nunn. After San Antonio signed Nunn to a PTO on March 8, the Rampage winger has recorded one goal and two assists in his three appearances. Nunn took home the Second Star of the Game on Sunday with his first AHL goal and a helper on the night. In 57 contests with the Atlanta Gladi- ators this season, Nunn has bagged 12 goals and 37 assists. The Rampage winger began the year with the Gladiators and Providence Bruins before making his way to the Alamo City.
SHOTS FROM THE POINT
RANTANEN RECORD WATCH: Rampage rookie sensation Mikko Rantanen is closing in on several franchise rookie records. The Avalanche's first-round pick (10th overall) in 2015 is currently one goal and one assist from tying franchise rookie rec- ords in each category and is one point away from setting a new record for points by a rookie in a season, previously held by Connor Brickley in the 2014-15 season.
Rantanen also leads the league's rookies with 50 points.
