ATLANTIC DIVISION STANDINGS
LAST TIME OUT:
The Hershey Bears had a three-game winning streak come to an end last night as they fell 4-1 to the Rochester Americans on home ice. Hershey jumped out to a 1-0 lead only 3:35 into the game on a goal from Derek Hulak. However, the Amerks would score four unanswered goals, including two from Zach Redmond, the top scoring defender in the league. Hershey was out shot 34-27 in the loss. The Wolf Pack earned a 3-2 victory last night at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Steven Fogarty scored a pair of goals, and Bobby Butler added the eventual game-winner at the 13:26 mark of the second period. Goaltender Marek Mazanec made 35 saves to earn the win between the pipes for Hartford.
LAST SEASON VS. HARTFORD:
The Bears earned a 4-2-0-0 record in six games last season with the Hartford Wolf Pack. Three of Hershey’s wins versus Hartford came on the road, with the lone victory at Giant Center coming on Oct. 29 in a 4-3 win. Liam O’Brien had three goals versus the Wolf Pack last season. Returning Hartford forward Cole Schneider paced the Wolf Pack with six points (three goals, three assists), while returning goaltender Marek Mazanec posted the best record versus Hershey, with a 1-1-0 mark and a 2.04 goals against average.
PA BORN HARTFORD SNIPER:
Hartford’s leading scorer was born not far from Chocolatetown. Wolf Pack winger Steven Fogarty was born in Chambersburg in 1993. Fogarty’s stay in Pennsylvania was not long, as his father Bill spent 32 years in the Navy, and shortly after his birth, his family relocated to Egypt. He eventually settled in Minnesota, and played four years of NCAA hockey at Notre Dame. The third round selection of the New York Rangers leads the Wolf Pack with 13 points (seven goals, six assists) in 13 games. He had five points (three goals, two assists) in six games versus Hershey last season.
HOCKEY FIGHTS CANCER:
Hershey’s roster features defenseman Logan Pyett, a cancer survivor. The defender is in his first season back in North America after being diagnosed with sarcoma, a form of cancer, ahead of the 2015-16 season. Then with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, Pyett went through treatment that caused him to also miss the 2016-17 season. He has since recovered, returning to hockey in the Asian League last season before signing with the Bears this summer. Hershey forward Riley Barber and defender Colby Williams also have been impacted by cancer. The two players mothers overcame cancer, with Williams mother battling thyroid cancer, and Barber’s mom fighting breast cancer. Bears forward Derek Hulak lost his mother to breast cancer in 2007, and he also recently lost a friend and former teammate to cancer.
BREAK FROM THE THREE IN THREES:
Tonight marks the final game of Hershey’s only three in three in the month of November. The next time the Bears play three games in three days is not until Dec. 7-10 when Hershey visits Lehigh Valley Friday night, before returning to host Hartford on Saturday, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday.
