Fast Facts: Moose at Abbotsford – April 3

By: Manitoba Moose Staff | Published: April 3rd 2024

The Manitoba Moose and Abbotsford Canucks rematch tonight in B.C. as the Moose seek to avenge last night's 4-3 loss to the Canucks. The Moose held early leads, but three straight goals from Abbotsford were too much to overcome. Ville Heinola, Jeff Malott and Dominic Toninato picked up the Moose goals in the loss. Coverage of tonight's game begins at 8:45 p.m. CT on CJOB.com/sports, the Winnipeg Jets App and AHLTV.

Milestone Moment

Jeff Malott’s power play goal in the first period of last night’s game checked off multiple milestones for the forward. First off, the goal was the Waterdown, Ont. product’s 80th career tally, all scored as a member of the Moose. That moves him into a tie with Lee Goren and JC Lipon for fifth on the franchise’s all-time goal-scoring list. As Malott’s team-leading 20th goal of the season, it marked the third consecutive season he reached the mark. The Cornell University alum is one of four players to lead the Moose in goals in two separate season. If he finishes the season atop the team’s list, he would be the only player to lead the team in three seasons. The goal was also Malott’s 45th point (20G, 25A) of the campaign, which marks a new career high.

Good as Gold(er)

Forward Carson Golder picked up his second assist of the season in last night’s contest while playing in his home province professionally for the first time. The helper gives Golder points in back-to-back games for the first time in his AHL career. The Smithers, B.C. product scored his first AHL goal on March 29, and it stood as the game-winner in a 4-3 victory against Toronto. Golder recorded at least one shot on goal in each of his past three outings. The winger has three points (1G, 2A) and a plus-one rating in eight AHL games this season. Golder also has 28 points (15G, 13A) in 32 ECHL games with the Norfolk Admirals during his first professional season.

The First One Hundred

Tyrel Bauer appeared in his 100th AHL contest last night against Abbotsford. Bauer made his AHL debut back on Oct. 15, 2022 when the Moose faced off against the Rockford IceHogs. Since then, the defenceman has tallied 12 career points (3G, 9A) and 182 penalty minutes in his first 100 AHL contests. Bauer, a 2020 Winnipeg Jets sixth round selection, has five points (2G, 3A) in 53 games along with a career-high 57 shots. When Bauer records at least one point in a game this season, the Moose have a 4-0-0 record.

Get Shorty

Dominic Toninato scored his fourth goal of the season in the third period of last night’s game. The goal came shorthanded, marking Manitoba’s 11th shorthanded tally of the season. The goal was Toninato’s first shorthanded goal of the season and eighth of his career. Toninato is the 10th different Moose player this season to strike while on the penalty kill, the most among all AHL teams. Manitoba is tied for fourth in the AHL in shorthanded goals this season.

Who's Trending?

Simon Lundmark posted an assist yesterday against Abbotsford. The defenceman, a 2019 Winnipeg Jets second round pick, has produced points in consecutive games for the sixth time this season. Lundmark has 15 points (4G, 11A) through 59 contests and is two points shy of matching the career-high mark he set in 2022-23.
