Pack Should Thrive With Ideal Schedule

Wolf Pack Win!

On Tuesday afternoon, the American Hockey League released Hartford’s 21st schedule.  The journey begins at home on Friday, October 6th against a former foe, the Charlotte Checkers. Charlotte returns to Hartford for the first time since the 2010-11 season. In addition, Hartford will face the newly established franchises of Rockets de Laval, Binghamton Devils, and the Belleville Senators. The season features a balanced schedule between the home and away slate. From October 6th to December 31st, Hartford will play 17 games both on the road and in Hartford. In 2018, Hartford plays 21 home and away contests. However, there will be one challenge for the upcoming season. Hartford plays three games in three nights multiple times and that will be tough. Overall, Hartford has the upper hand from a scheduling perspective. Compared to other teams, the club has balance in each month. Travel is logical and when they do go far, it is for multiple games with rest periods. Let’s dissect the schedule!

Welcome to the Wolf Pack Den

Greetings readers,

My name is Ricky and I look forward to providing phenomenal coverage for the New York Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. I have been a season ticket holder for the club since 2010. Prior to that, I attended games throughout my childhood. I have seen Ryan Callahan, Mats Zuccarello, Dan Girardi, Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau, Artem Anisimov, and many others develop in Hartford. The list is lengthy on who has made it to the big leagues. I have seen some of the worst and best moments in franchise history, such as the Pack reaching the Eastern Conference Finals in the 2014-15 season to the worst, a defeat of 10-2 against the Springfield Falcons (now Tuscon Road Runners). I am currently a college student at the University of Connecticut and attend Hockey East matches to watch the Huskies.

After missing the playoffs for the fourth time in the last five years, the Rangers relieved Ken Gernander of his head coaching duties with the Hartford Wolf Pack. Gernander, who is the only player to have his number retired by the Wolf Pack, has served as the bench boss in Hartford since the 2007-2008 season. Gernander got as far as the AHL’s Eastern Conference Finals as head coach but had five seasons of not making the postseason. Gernander helped mold some of the NHL’s finest talents including, Artem Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, Mats Zuccarello, and Ryan McDonagh to name a few.

Derek Stepan is out indefinitely with broken ribs. He was seen yesterday after the game walking around with a flak jacket to protect them. Today, the Rangers will simply reinsert Viktor Stalberg into the starting lineup, but what will they do for the foreseeable future? Read more

Every hockey website and every Rangers writer is already putting in their two cents on Martin St. Louis. The soon to be 40 year old winger, looked every bit his age this post season. A playoffs that saw him generate only 1 goal in 19 games. Read more
