Last weekend was rough for the Wolf Pack. The club dropped all three games and struggled on both sides of the puck. This is their first big slump of the season and they experienced their first blowout of the season as well on Friday night against Bridgeport, losing 7-3.

The team is currently 7-11-2-1, seventh in the Atlantic Division, with a point percentage of .405.

The dog days of summer are officially upon us. Free agency has settled and trade talk is low. For the Wolf Pack and the American Hockey League, teams are preparing for the upcoming season quietly and quickly. From the front office to the coach’s office, planning is well underway up in Hartford.
This afternoon Chris Drury signed his second player for the Wolf Pack, bringing in forward Dan DeSalvo. DeSalvo joins Hartford through an American Hockey League deal (signing does not affect the Rangers cap). Last season, he recorded 40 points (18 goals, 22 assists) in 66 games with the Manitoba Moose. In addition to playing with Manitoba, he spent time with the Tulsa Oilers of the ECHL, recording 13 points (6 goals, 7 assists) in 12 games.
New York Rangers prospect Nicklas Jensen, who is currently a restricted free agent, has signed a 1-year contract with Jokerit of the KHL. Since Nicklas came to the organization in a trade with Vancouver for Emerson Etem, he has been assigned to the team’s minor league affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. Despite being a call up on a couple of occasions, he couldn’t keep himself with the big club long enough to call it home.
The Hartford Wolfpack announced on Thursday the signing of Minnesota-Duluth defenseman Brenden Kotyk. Kotyk, who stands at a whopping 6’6″, 240 pounds, has a lot of work left to do if he wants to make his way into an NHL roster. He put up 13 points (3G, 10A) this year for UMD, and held a plus-minus rating of+20, all career bests. He was one of the team’s assistant captains and won the Goldie Wolfe Award, given to the most inspirational player at UMD.
