November 16, 2022 – Federal Prospects Hockey League (FPHL) – Mississippi Sea Wolves press release

Winston-Salem, NC — The (2-4-2) Mississippi Sea Wolves are looking to return to the winning column for the first time since Oct. 28 as they head to North for two games against the (6-2-0) Carolina Thunderbirds Carolina travel at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex.

Last weekend in review: The Sea Wolves hosted the Port Huron Prowlers last Friday and Saturday and lost both games 6-1 and 5-2. The only Mississippi goal in the series’ opening game came from Philip Wong in his Sea Wolves debut. Yaroslav Yevdokimov and Daniel McKitrick both lit the lamp on Saturday before Port Huron launched a four-goal run in the third period.

Yaro leads the lead: Forward Yaroslav Yevdokimov has seven points in his last four appearances. After scoring a goal and an assist against Port Huron last Saturday, he jumped to the top of the Sea Wolves leaderboard with nine assists and 13 points.

The hunt continues: after his first goalless game of the season on November 11, striker Chris Hunt returned the following night to provide an assist against Port Huron. Hunt has now seen points in seven of his eight games this season. He leads the Sea Wolves with six goals.

Climbing the ladder: This weekend marks the seventh and eighth straight games the Sea Wolves have played against a Continental Division rival. Mississippi’s slow start has propelled her to No. 5 in the division. The Thunderbirds are just a step above with a two-and-a-half game lead.

Scouting the Thunderbirds: Carolina started the season red hot after winning six of their first eight games played. Their two losses were to the Port Huron Prowlers (Oct. 21) and Danbury Hat Tricks (Nov. 4). Gus Ford is the Carolinas’ leading scorer with nine goals and 21 points.

On the Road Again: This Friday marks the Sea Wolves’ first away game since October 22 in Binghamton, New York.
