Seven games are on the schedule on Sunday for the AHL, with several top teams on the ice during a busy afternoon of hockey.
The Chicago Wolves and Charlotte Checkers face off at 3 p.m. ET in a battle between two of the division leaders in the Western Conference. The Checkers are one of the top scoring teams in the AHL this season and are coming off just their second loss of the year. Chicago has been hot, winning three straight games with the use of timely offense and a stout defense on their way to a 6-2-1-0 start to the season.
The Oklahoma City Barons, sporting perhaps the deepest roster in the AHL, have been inconsistent at times this season. 2-0-0-1 in their last three games, the Barons are on the ice for the third time in three days on Sunday as they take on the San Antonio Rampage at 4:30 p.m. ET. Defensemen Justin Schultz leads the team in scoring with six goals and nine assists in just nine games.
