TONIGHT
Get Fired Up as the Stockton Heat look to avenge Wednesday’s loss against the Gulls tonight as the two teams meet for the final time at the Valley View Casino Center. Stockton is playing their second night of the weekend back-to-back after earning a point last night in the 4-3 overtime loss to the Ontario Reign at Citizen Business Bank Arena. The San Diego Gulls haven’t played since Wednesday night’s matchup with the Heat and they will be fully rested ahead of their Teddy Bear Toss game tonight.

LAST TIME VS. SAN DIEGO
Stockton struck first on Wednesday night, scoring just over a minute into the game with Oliver Kylington’s wrist shot. However, San Diego persisted their way to 5-3 victory, tying the game three separate times before Mitch Hults game-winning goal. Stockton’s loss was their first time this season where the club failed to earn a point against the Gulls in their five meetings.

Marek Hrivik led the way for the Heat with a goal and an assist, which extended his multi-point game streak to three games.

WHO TO WATCH
Hunter Shinkaruk is on quite the run for the Stockton Heat and his ability to create offense makes him the player to key in on tonight.

After five straight games without a point, Shinkaruk has exploded for three goals in his last four games, with his goals in the last ten days having been extremely timely as well.

Last week Shinkaruk scored two early goals, including a marker just 12 seconds into the game, which set a new Stockton Heat record for the fastest goal scored in franchise history. Last night Shinkaruk had another flare for the dramatic with a huge game-tying goal that earned Stockton a critical point on the road.

Shinkaruk’s recent success directly correlates with his new line combination. Shinkaruk is skating with a newfound jump in his game over the last few games and his speed will be critical tonight against a physical San Diego team that can be vulnerable to speedy wingers on the outside.

NOBODY HOTTER THAN HRIVVER
An early poll for Heat MVP through the first 23 games of the year would certainly put center Marek Hrivik on that conversation.

He’s off to a terrific start, recordeing 26 points (9-17-26) in his first 22 games of the season and is on pace to obliterate his career high of 41 points for the Hartford Wolf Pack established in 2015-16.

For the Wolf Pack, Hrivik recorded back to back 40 point seasons, and spent time with the New York Rangers in the last two seasons, but now with the Flames organization, Hrivik could eclipse those highs and earn himself a callup to the big club.

Hrivik tied Andrew Mangiapane on Wednesday with his ninth multi-point game, the most on the Heat this season, and after his shorthanded goal last night vs. Ontario, has points in five-straight games (3-5-8).

Shinkaruk’s Two-Point Night Helps Heat Earn Point in Ontario

Caravan News - 42 Article rating: No rating

Ontario, Calif. – Hunter Shinkaruk’s third period goal tied the game up and eventually ensured the Heat would earn a point in Ontario, but Brett Sutter’s overtime goal would earn the extra point for the home team as the Heat fell just short in a 4-3 loss to the Ontario Reign.  Marek Hrivik stayed red hot, recording the Heat’s fourth shorthanded goal of the season just 2:26 into the game with defenseman Josh Healey earning an assist on the play, his first professional point.  While Ontario would tie things up, it’d be Brett Findlay who’d regain the lead for the Heat in the second period off a great breakout into the offensive zone and the centerman finishing on the backhand deke. The Reign would take their first lead with goals 1:43 apart later in the period off Matt Luff’s backhand deke and a power-play goal from Paul LaDue, which eventually led to Shinkaruk’s tying goal early in the third.  Stockton now heads back down to the Valley View Casino Center tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. as the Heat look to get revenge on Wednesday’s defeat at the hands of the San Diego Gulls. Get your holiday shopping done right now and purchase a Heat Holiday Pack, featuring Lombo’s Naughty List, Klimmer’s Holiday Hat Trick, Mangiapane’s Gingerbread Special, and a New Year’s Eve Pack.  Order yours today by visiting stocktonheat.com/holidays or call the Heat Front Office at 209.373.1500.

TONIGHT
Get Fired Up as the Stockton Heat look to bounce back after a tough loss on Wednesday in San Diego as they take on the Ontario Reign for the second matchup of the season.  Stockton had their five-game unbeaten streak snapped on Wednesday while the Reign have won back to back games and are coming home after a 5-game road trip.

The Heat are 8-11-2-0 all-time against the Ontario Reign including an 0-1-0-0 record this season.

LAST TIME VS. ONTARIO
Back on November 22, Morgan Klimchuk got the Heat on the board first, but the Reign would score the next three goals to take the first meeting by a 3-1 final. Mike Amadio had two goals for Ontario while Keegan Iverson scored his first of the season assisted by former Heat forward Jamie Devane. Goaltender Jack Campbell made 28 saves in the win.

WHO TO WATCH
Tonight we want to keep an eye on Emile Poirier, who we believe has gotten off to a great start this season.

After missing a lot of hockey last year, it’s taken Poirier a bit of time to get into game shape, but boy has he looked good.  The Poirier we knew and loved that used his up-and-down speed to blow past defenders, someone who could dipsy doodle around defenders, win puck battles and put the points on the board is back and we love him!

Used in a number of situations including finding himself on the power play and the penalty kill, Poirier is looking good and while he was held off the scoresheet, we think he’s been one of the key players in Stockton’s form all season long and we have a good feeling that if the Heat can get the win tonight in Ontario, Emile Poirier will be one of the reasons Stockton does it.

NOBODY HOTTER THAN HRIVVER
An early poll for Heat MVP through the first 23 games of the year would certainly put center Marek Hrivik on that conversation.

He’s off to a terrific start, recording 25 points (8-17-25) in his first 21 games of the season and is on pace to obliterate his career high of 41 points for the Hartford Wolf Pack established in 2015-16.

For the Wolf Pack, Hrivik recorded back to back 40 point seasons, and spent time with the New York Rangers in the last two seasons, but now with the Flames organization, Hrivik could eclipse those highs and earn himself a call-up to the big club.

Hrivik tied Andrew Mangiapane on Wednesday with his ninth multi-point game, the most on the Heat this season, and has points in four-straight games (2-5-7).

AN UN-FOO-GETABLE WEEK
Spencer Foo had a week to remember, scoring three goals on Wednesday last week to record his first career hat trick, and third ever in Heat history, joining Mark Jankowski (1/20/17 vs. BAK) and Hunter Shinkaruk (4/5/17 vs. SD) as the only Heat players to accomplish this.

Foo would then add his fourth goal in his last two games on Saturday and even recorded his first pro fight later in the game. Then on Wednesday in San Diego, Foo increased his point streak
