Lias Andersson notched his first career American Hockey League goal and added two assists in a 5-4 Wolf Pack overtime win over Bridgeport Wednesday afternoon.

"I like Lias' game a lot right now," said Hartford head coach Keith McCambridge of Andersson. "I think he's skating well, he's learning to be in areas of the ice that are a little bit different from over in Europe. I liked his goal, it was a hard-working goal, going to the front of the net, and he's been playing really good hockey for us."

The 2017 seventh overall pick has a goal and four assists through six games as a member of the Wolf Pack.

Filip Chytil also scored his eighth of the season while Ryan Graves, Ryan Gropp, Neal Pionk, Adam Tambellini and John Gilmour had assists. Defenseman Ryan Sproul had two goals, including the game-winner, and Alexandar Georgiev made 33 saves for his 11th victory of the year, and seventh in his last eight games.
