Calgary Wranglers News Release

Picked up the 'W'.

The Wranglers are back in the win column after defeating the Canucks 2-1 in Abbotsford on Saturday night.

William Stromgren opened the scoring for the Wranglers with his second goal of the season and Cole Schwindt scored the game-winner in his first game back from his recent NHL recall.

Dustin Wolf - also in his first game back from the NHL - was back between the pipes for the Wranglers and turned aside 29 of 30 shots in the contest.

The first period was scoreless; however, it had some moments of intrigue.

Schwindt dropped the mitts in response to a hard body check on Matt Coronato in the neutral zone, challenging Tristen Nielsen to a short but spirited scrap.

No score after 20 minutes.

The Wranglers took the lead on the powerplay in the second period.

At the 4:35 mark, Stromgren walked off the half-wall and whipped a wrist-shot past Arturs Silovs to open the scoring.


Calgary added to their lead at the 11:30 mark of the third period, as Coronato rushed up the ice and dropped a pass to Jonathan Aspirot, who made an elusive deke and backhanded a pass to Schwindt, who roofed a one-timer upstairs on Silovs.

2-0 Calgary.

Abbotsford answered back at 15:49, when John Stevens worked the puck out from behind the net to Marc Gatcomb who shoveled it past Wolf.


The Canucks had a multiple powerplay chances in the final minute, but could not solve Wolf, who shut the door to preserve the win for Calgary.
