K-WINGS LOOK TO REBOUND FROM WILD WEEKEND

Kalamazoo set to travel to Fort Wayne Friday, before hosting the Utah Grizzlies Saturday.

OVERALL RECORD:  4-3-2

LAST WEEK:  0-2-1

RESULTS

Friday, Nov. 8 – Fort Wayne 6, Kalamazoo 2  (Wings Event Center – Kalamazoo, MI) | Box Score

>> The Kalamazoo Wings opened up their first three-game weekend of the season with the first of two games against the Fort Wayne Komets. The visiting Komets jumped out to an early lead 2:53 into the game and added a power play goal to go up 2-0 after 20 minutes. Dylan Sadowy provided a spark with a wraparound goal 48 seconds into the middle frame, but the Komets answered with three more goals before the end of the period, including their second goal on the man-advantage. Kalamazoo picked up a sliver of hope when Matt Iacopelli set up Luke Sandler for a tap-in 7:32 into the third period, but Fort Wayne added an empty netter to seal their 6-2 road win.

 

Saturday, Nov. 9 – Fort Wayne 6, Kalamazoo 5, OT  (Wings Event Center – Kalamazoo, MI) | Box Score

>> The K-Wings put together a much better start Saturday on Military Appreciation Night at Wings Event Center, when Brennan Sanford scored the team’s second short-handed goal of the season. Fort Wayne tied the game on a five-minute power play late in the opening period, which carried over into the second. The Komets struck again on that same power play to take the lead. Dylan Sadowy deflected a centering pass into the net to even the score at 2-2, but Fort Wayne answered 17 seconds later. Justin Kovacs then tied the score at 3-3 with 5:17 left in the middle stanza, but the Komets scored their third of four power play goals (on nine opportunities) and led 4-3 after two. Sadowy lit the lamp a second time 3:34 into the third and then set up Boston Leier for the go-ahead goal 2:31 later. But Fort Wayne scored another power play goal with 6:55 remaining to force overtime and won the game with 1:49 left in the extra frame.

Sunday, Nov. 10 – Cincinnati 3, Kalamazoo 2  (Wings Event Center – Kalamazoo, MI) | Box Score

>> Finishing off a busy weekend at home, Kalamazoo welcomed Cincinnati Sunday and fell into another 2-0 first period hole. Dylan Sadowy, who had seven points on the weekend (4g, 3a), started the comeback with a power play goal 4:22 into the second period. Boston Leier followed a successful penalty kill with a hard-nosed goal while he was getting hauled down on his way to the net. Cincinnati went back in front 2:48 later with their second power play goal of the afternoon. The Cyclones wound up with 10 opportunities on the man-advantage. Trailing 3-2 entering the third, Kalamazoo mustered up six shots in the final period, but could not find the game-tying goal, as the Cyclones held on for the 3-2 victory.

TWO WESTERN MICHIGAN ALUMS RETURN TO KALAMAZOO

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced Tuesday the signing of two former Western Michigan University forwards, Justin Kovacs and Matt Iacopelli to the 2019-20 roster.

Kovacs, 27, returns to Kalamazoo where he started his pro career in 2015-16. The Grosse Pointe Woods, Mich. native appeared in eight games for the K-Wings at the end of his senior season at WMU. He also spent his first full professional season in Kalamazoo, where he posted 29 points (6g, 23a) in 63 games.

“My family and I are very happy to be back in Kalamazoo,” said Kovacs. “It’s a great organization surrounded with great people, and it was an easy decision. I can’t wait to get back on the ice with some of the guys I have played with before, and I hope to help the K-Wings have a strong year and make a run in the playoffs.”

The 5-foot-11, 194-pound forward spent parts of two ECHL seasons with the Quad City Mallards, before heading overseas. Kovacs finished the 2017-18 campaign with HK Nitra in Slovakia, and spent the entire 2018-19 season with the Nottingham Panthers of the Elite Ice Hockey League, where he put up 43 points (13g, 30a) in 53 games.

“Justin has played for us before and understands the commitment we ask of our players,” said K-Wings Head Coach Nick Bootland. “He is a highly-skilled forward who makes a team’s power play better.”

Iacopelli, 25, joins the K-Wings for his third season as a pro, after splitting the 2018-19 campaign between the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs, and ECHL’s Indy Fuel and Manchester Monarchs. The Chicago Blackhawks drafted the Woodhaven, Mich. native in the third round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and signed him to his first pro contract in 2016-17 after his sophomore seasons at WMU.

“I’m excited to be back on the west side of the state,” said Iacopelli. “I already know what the city has to offer, having played two years here at Western Michigan, and I’m really ready to contribute to and represent the K-Wings this season.”

The 6-foot-3, 207-pound winger comes to Kalamazoo with 116 games of pro experience. He had 27 points (14g, 13a) in 85 games with Rockford and 19 points (15g, 4a) in 31 ECHL games.

“Matt is a huge pickup for us,” said Bootland. “He is a powerful skater with a great shot, and we love that he is still driven and hungry to move up and play at the highest level.

Both players enjoyed success at the collegiate level for the Broncos.
