David Wolf to adjust to the North American game but now that the 25-year-old has gotten comfortable with the style of play, he has become a key cog for the Adirondack Flames.
"Coming to a different country, I knew it was going to be different," he said. "I struggled on the ice at first, but it wasn’t just on the ice. It was everything around it, too. So I needed time to get used to it. I’ve found my game now and I’m ready to go and help the team."
Last week, Wolf played a big role offensively for the Flames, registering points in three straight games.
On Tuesday, Wolf netted his sixth goal of the year in a 6-2 rout over the San Antonio Ramage. He fired four shots on net and was a plus-two in the victory.
In Friday's 5-4 OT setback to the Oklahoma City Barons, Wolf collected the primary assist on John Ramage's first AHL marker.
The Flames didn't fare well in Saturday's match-up with Utica, falling 4-1, but Wolf was a bright spot in the game. He scored the Flames only goal and was tied for the lead in shots on net with six.
"The nice part about David is that he’s got the ability to play with really offensive guys and he’s got the ability to play with some checking line guys, too," head coach Ryan Huska said of the forward.
Through 32 games, Wolf has seven goals, 15 points, and is a plus-five.
