Nose for the Net
Nikita Chibrikov scored a goal in Saturday afternoon’s contest against the Marlies. The forward, who is currently in the midst of his AHL rookie season, has found the back of the net in consecutive contests. That gives the forward his third point streak of the 2023-24 campaign. Chibrikov, a 2021 Winnipeg second round pick, is now up to 13 points (4G, 9A) through 12 contests and leads the antlered ones in both points and shots on goal. He sits tied for third in AHL rookie scoring. In addition, Chibrikov is tied for the AHL rookie lead with five power play assists.
Parker Ford found the back of the net against the Marlies on Saturday. The tally was the forward’s second of the season and gives Ford six points (2G, 4A) through 12 games in his rookie AHL season. Early on in the 2023-24 campaign, the winger has already equalled his goal output from this past season and has set a new career-high in both the assists and points category. Ford’s six points rank him in a tie for 31st in the AHL among first-year skaters in terms of points.

Toninato has also appeared in 169 NHL games, including 84 for Winnipeg, and he has posted 30 points (12G, 18A) and 73 PIMs in the league.
