Hunter Shinkaruk (2-0-1), Brandon DeFazio (1-1-0), and Cal O’Reilly (0-2-2) all led the way with two points apiece for the Comets. Jacob Markstrom saved 29 shots out of the 32 taken by the Wolves, and now has collected a win in seven of his eight starts.

After returning from his two-game stint with the Vancouver Canucks, DeFazio quickly reminded Utica what he could offer.

The Comets game winning-goal came from a fluky Shinkaruk dump from center ice. The puck flew towards Climie’s net and took a weird bounce directly over his glove to make the final score 4-3. This was Shinkaruk’s second goal of the night and his fourth on the season. Kane Lafranchise tallied an assist on the play in just his second game of the season.

Next Wednesday, Nov. 19 the Comets will be facing the Hamilton Bulldogs for the first time this season at The AUD. The Comets went 2-2-0-0 against the Bulldogs in their inaugural season.
