Multi-Goal Milestones

Forward Jeff Malott scored twice last night for his ninth career multi-goal game. Malott’s first goal of the evening came by way of a power play tally, the 25th of his AHL career. That ties him for sixth on the franchise’s all-time list with Scott Thomas. The Waterdown, Ont. product’s second goal of the game was the 72nd of his career, which ties Malott for seventh on the franchise leaderboard with Eric O’Dell. The pair of tallies also pushed the winger to the 30-point mark for the third consecutive season.

New Heights

Kyle Capobianco notched an assist against Calgary last night. The helper was the defenceman’s 29th of the season, which is a new career-high, passing the mark he previously set in 2017-18 with Tucson. The Mississauga, Ont. product currently leads Manitoba in assists and a plus-11 rating on the season. Capobianco also leads the antlered ones with 36 points (7G, 29A) over 46 games. The defenceman, who represented Manitoba at the 2024 AHL All-Star Classic, enters tonight’s contest tied for second in overall AHL defenceman scoring.

Picking Up PIMs

Jeffrey Viel is one trip to the box away from 500 career penalty minutes with 499 PIMs in his career. Viel leads the Moose with 101 penalty minutes this season which ranks seventh among AHL skaters this season. The forward, who inked a one-year contract with Winnipeg in 2023, has tallied over 100 penalty minutes three times in his career. Viel has posted six points (3G, 3A) over his past 10 games and has notched 20 points (9G, 11A) through 45 contests. The winger is one of six Manitoba skaters to have hit the 20-point mark and every season that the forward has appeared in 40 or more contests, Viel has surpassed the 20-point plateau. The forward has tallied 113 points (54G, 59A) in 257 career contests between San Jose and Manitoba.


The Moose and Wranglers have alternated wins all season. The two teams faced off in three previous two-game sets and each time, Calgary claimed the first game in regulation. All three rematches saw Manitoba pick up a win in extra time. The first 10 times the Moose and Wranglers faced off, dating back to the 2022-23 campaign, the teams split their contests five per side. Neither team has swept a two-game set between the clubs.
