200 – Jay Dickman extended his point-streak to eight games and has two points in each of his last three. He is three points shy of 200 for his ECHL career. The Stillwater, Minnesota native tallied his eighth power play goal of the year on Sunday, which leads the league in that category. Dickman also leads the league with 14 power play points. 

GAME WINNER – Roman Kinal was Mr. Clutch last week. He recorded the overtime game-winner on Wednesday against Tulsa and then followed that up with the go-ahead goal on Sunday afternoon against Rapid City with seven seconds left in regulation. Kinal has six points (5g, 1a) in 22 games this year. 

MEECH – Michal Stinil had a season-high three assists on Wednesday night against Tulsa. He finished the week with four helpers. Stinil has 19 points (8g, 11a) in 21 games this season.
