Fast Facts: Moose at Calgary – Feb. 13

By: Manitoba Moose Staff | Published: February 13th 2024

The Manitoba Moose and Calgary Wranglers match up tonight (8 p.m. CT) at Scotiabank Saddledome to open a back-to-back set. It's the fifth meeting of the season between the clubs with the Moose holding a 2-2-0-0 record against their hosts. Manitoba grabbed a 4-3 overtime win their previous visit on Dec. 10. The team comes in 5-1-0-1 the past seven games, with all those games being played on the road. Coverage of tonight's game on CJOB.com/sports, the Winnipeg Jets App and AHLTV begins at 7:45 p.m. CT with puck drop slated for 8 p.m. CT.

Scoring Threat

Brad Lambert tied the contest on Saturday in Grand Rapids with a power play tally. The 2022 Winnipeg Jets first round selection tied fellow rookie forward Nikita Chibrikov for the Moose goal lead with 14 tallies. Lambert, who was one of two Moose skaters representing Manitoba at the 2024 AHL All-Star Classic, ranks third in team scoring with
29 points (14G, 15A) in 37 contests. The power play marker, the forward’s sixth of the season, also pushed Lambert to first on the squad. In addition, the Lahti, Finland product’s 14 goals tie him with Chibrikov for fourth overall among AHL rookie forwards during the campaign.

Point Streakin’

Kristian Reichel posted a pair of assists and scored the shootout-winning goal on Saturday night.  The forward, who re-signed a two-year contract with Winnipeg in 2022, is currently riding an eight-game point streak and has tallied nine points (5G, 4A) over that span. Additionally, the shootout winner was the first of the pivot’s AHL career. The Litvinov, Czech Republic product’s point streak is both the longest of Reichel’s professional career and the longest on the Moose this season. The centre is up to 17 points (10G, 7A) in 42 games and is closing in on a pair of milestones. Reichel is seven points away from 100 in his AHL career and is standing on 49 career assists.

Add Them Up

Jeff Malott registered an assist on the road in Grand Rapids on Saturday. The Waterdown, Ont. product is in the midst of a three-game point streak and has three points (1G, 2A) in that span. Malott, who owns the Moose set the franchise record with his fifth career overtime-winning goal on Feb. 3, has posted 28 points (10G, 18A) through 42 games and ranks fourth in Moose scoring. The winger’s 18 assists tie the mark he produced in 2021-22 and place him three away from the career-high of 21 that he recorded in 2022-23. Malott has produced 133 career points (70G, 63A) in 209 games, all with Manitoba.

Roster Moves

The Winnipeg Jets loaned forward Dominic Toninato to the Moose. Toninato has six points (2G, 4A) in nine games with Manitoba this season, while recording five points (1G, 4A) in 15 NHL games with the Jets. Winnipeg also loaned forward David Gustafsson to Manitoba. The forward has notched four points (2G, 2A) in 27 games with the Jets this season. The pivot has also tallied 56 points (24G, 32A) in 82 career AHL games with the Moose. Meanwhile, Manitoba reassigned forward Carson Golder to the ECHL’s Norfolk Admirals. Golder appeared in one game for the Moose this season. The forward also has 22 points (12G, 10A) through 27 games with Norfolk.

Who's Trending?

Kyle Capobianco posted an assist in Manitoba’s shootout victory. The Mississauga, Ont. product ranks first on the Moose with 34 points (7G, 27A) and is one assist and three points shy of matching previous career-high numbers.
