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

Hrivik Records Ninth Multi-Point Game as Heat Fall 5-3

Caravan News - 66 Article rating: No rating

San Diego, Calif. – Marek Hrivik continued his hot play as of late, recording a goal and an assist to increase point streak to four games, but San Diego’s three power-play goals would prove to be the difference in an emotional game that the Heat would fall in 5-3.  The game was full of penalties, with the Heat posting a season-high of 68 minutes, the second highest in a single game this season in the AHL while the Gulls recorded 47 minutes for a combined total of 115 minutes of penalties handed out, the second most combined minutes in the AHL this season.  While the Heat got the lead on three occasions, the Gulls were consistently there, always tying the game after the Heat scored, until the third period where a slew of power-play chances turned into goals for the home team, and eventually, the win.  The loss snapped a stretch of five-straight games where the Heat picked up points. Stockton now heads north to Ontario to take on the Reign on Friday at 7:00 p.m. before returning to the Valley View Casino Center on Saturday for another 7:00 p.m. showdown with the 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 play the San Diego Gulls, putting their five-game point streak on the line as the team embarks on a season-long, seven-game road swing.  Stockton just came back from playing six games on the road, posting a 3-2-0-1 record, but now have the targets placed on their back as they took over as the Pacific Division’s number one team with their win over Tucson last Saturday.

 

LAST TIME VS. SAN DIEGO
It’s been awhile since the last time these two teams met, but it started out great for the Heat as Brett Findlay scored just 27 seconds into the game and both Garnet Hathaway , Andrew Mangiapane and Tyler Wotherspoon recorded 3 point nights as the Heat doubled up the Gulls 6-3 back on November 10 at the Valley View Casino Center.

David Rittich made 23 saves to earn the win.

WHO TO WATCH
He may not be getting his due, but the Stockton Heat need centerman Brett Findlay and his skillset every night.

Since taking over as the center on Andrew Mangiapane’s line after Mark Jankowski got called up, Findlay has recorded 3 goals and 8 assists, and as you’ve heard Coach Huska say, one of the key reasons why Findlay finds success is because he plays the game with pace.

And as a people who had seen Findlay dominate in the ECHL with the San Francisco Bulls and Alaska Aces during the Thunder Hockey era in Stockton, it’s exciting to see a player who was maybe a little undervalued earlier in his career start to get his just desserts.

Findlay just got done recording his fourth multi-point game of the season on Saturday against Tucson, and we like the new look to that line featuring Findlay, Mangiapane and Ryan Lomberg, who’s filled in beautifully in a similar role to one that Garnet Hathaway played before his call to Calgary.

Look to number 36 in red tonight if the Heat are to beat the Gulls on the road.

MR. 700
The Heat have seen Rod Pelley play his 500th AHL game on October 28 in Bakersfield, Colby Robak play his 500th pro game (NHL + AHL) on November 22 in Ontario and provided he’s in the lineup, will now get to see Tanner Glass play his 700th pro game.

Glass has played 518 NHL games with Florida, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Pittsburgh, New York Rangers and Calgary to go along with 175 games in the AHL with Rochester, Hartford and Stockton and a brief six-game stint in the top league in Slovakia with HC Banska Bystrica during the 2012-13 NHL Lockout.

This season, he has two assists on the season and in his last game, racked up a single game high (for the Heat that is) of 19 penalty minutes, standing up for a nasty slash across the face of Morgan Klimchuk.  He’s a terrific teammate, a good option for the Heat at center and we congratulate him for such a lengthy pro hockey career.

SHINKARUK GETS ON THE BOARD QUICK
Hunter Shinkaruk has goals in back-to-back games and scored them in pretty fantastic fashion.

On both Wednesday in San Jose and in Stockton against Tucson on Saturday, Shinkaruk scored on the Heat’s first shot of the game.  On Wednesday it came 5:11 into the game and on Saturday, it came just 12 seconds into the contest, the fastest in Stockton Heat team history, shaving off six seconds from the previous record set by Brandon Bollig on April 15, 2017 vs. Tucson.

Shinkaruk is tied for fourth on the Heat in goals with seven this season along with Marek Hrivik.

AN UN-FOO-GETABLE WEEK
Spencer Foo had a week to remember, scoring three goals on Wednesday 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.
