Wolf Pack's Dale Weise Earns AHL Player Of The Week Honors

January 11, 2010 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Connecticut Whale News Release

HARTFORD, January 11, 2010: The American Hockey League today named Hartford Wolf Pack right-wing Dale Weise the Reebok AHL Player of the Week for this past week. He is the first Wolf Pack player to win the award this season.

Weise scored goals in all four of the Wolf Pack's games on the week, totaling five goals, the longest goal-scoring streak by a Pack player thus far this year.

In Wednesday night's game against Lowell in Newark, NJ, a 3-2 defeat, Weise's goal at 6:43 of the third period tied the score at two, after the Pack had entered the third session down 2-0. The second-year pro then notched his third two-goal game of the season Friday night, in a 5-2 win in Worcester, earning Third-Star honors. Saturday night in Albany, Weise netted his fourth shorthanded goal of the season, which was the only Hartford tally in a 3-1 loss. Weise then finished the week with a power-play goal in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win at Providence.

With six goals and an assist in his last six games, Weise has upped his totals on the year to 15-14-29 in 41 games, good for second on the Wolf Pack team in goals and third in points. A 6-2, 209-pound native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Weise, 21, was a fourth-round draft pick of the parent New York Rangers in 2008.

The Wolf Pack are next in action this Saturday, January 16 vs. the Providence Bruins, and that is "Faith and Family Night" at the XL Center. The Wrecking will be performing in the Atrium from 5:30-7:00 PM, and Ten-Shekel Shirt will be giving a special post-game concert in the Atrium. Also, the first 3,000 fans into the game will receive a free Wolf Pack team poster, courtesy of Supercuts.
