HELPER - Cam Clarke added two helpers on Sunday and pulled into a tie for the team-lead with five assists. He has four assists over his last three games. 

SWEDE - Tim Soderlund was sent to Wichita by the Edmonton Oilers and made an immediate impact over the weekend. The Swedish-born forward has assists in back-to-back games and showed his dynamic skill. He has 8 points (2g, 6a) in nine career ECHL games.
