Ulett Takes ChargeMavericks forward Loren Ulett has both of the Mavericks regulation goals in the last two games and has reached double digits in goals for the first time in his professional career.

Woods Goes UpMavericks defenseman Justin Woods was loaned to Rocket Laval of the American Hockey League. Woods previously played 10 games with the Manitoba Moose in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.

High On a LowSaturday night’s 1-0 win was the lowest total scoring game of the season for the Mavericks this year. Loren Ulett’s game-winner 25 seconds into the third period lifted the Mavs to their first 1-0 win of the season.

Taking the Low RoadThe Mavericks recorded just 12 shots on Saturday, their lowest shot total in any game this season.

Historic Campaign for CarzoMavericks Captain Rocco Carzo has accomplished several milestones and has ascended the Mavs franchise ranks in multiple categories. In Wednesday’s game at Idaho, he played in his 400th career ECHL game and scored his 76th goal as a Mav, putting him alone in third place on the Mavs all-time goals list. Carzo also played in his 265th career game with the Mavericks last Saturday against Utah, second most in franchise history. Earlier this season, Carzo also scored his 100th career ECHL goal.

Vander-landedMavs rookie forward Mitch Vanderlaan scored his first goal as a Maverick in the third period of Wednesday’s game at Idaho. Vanderlaan was acquired in a trade for D Neal Goff on February 3.

That Time of YearThe Mavericks made their first amateur signing of the season, bringing on defenseman Roshen Jaswal on an ATO deal. In 74 games with St. Olaf College (NCAA D-III), Jaswal had 42 points on 13 goals and 29 assists.
