Grizzlies Weekly: Grizz Return Home for Series vs KC

West Valley City, Utah – The Utah Grizzlies are back at Maverik Center this week for a big 3 game series against the Kansas City Mavericks.  

This week the Grizzlies host the Kansas City Mavericks on January 15th and 16th at 7:10 pm and the annual MLK game at 5:10 pm. Tickets for every Grizzlies home game are available at utahgrizzlies.com. Capacity will be limited to 1,800 for each game to start the season.

Utah lost 3 games by 1 goal at Tulsa last weekend with 2 of the 3 games decided past regulation. Tulsa won 3-2 on January 8th with Utah getting goals from Charlie Gerard and Cedric Pare. Oilers goaltender Roman Durny got a 26 save shutout last Saturday, while Utah’s Parker Gahagen was also great in goal, stopping 31 of 32. Gahagen has saved 59 of 62 shots in 2 games for Utah this season. On the series finale on Sunday, Utah got goals from Matt Abt and Gerard but lost 3-2 in a shootout. Utah goalie Peyton Jones saved 40 of 42 for Utah and was 3 for 4 in the shootout, while Tulsa’s Roman Durny saved 35 of 37.

Charlie Gerard had 2 goals last weekend. The rookie out of Minnesota State-Mankato is tied for the team lead with 4 goals and he leads the club with 35 shots on goal.  

Diego Cuglietta has a point in 7 of the 8 games played this season. He had a 6 game point streak from December 11th, 2020 to January 8th, 2021. That’s the 2nd longest point streak this season, only Allen’s Tyler Sheehy has a longer streak with 8 straight. On the season, Diego leads the team with 9 points on the season (1 goal, 8 assist).

Grizzlies forward Matt Hoover’s birthday is on Wednesday, January 13th. Hoover will turn 25.

It was the first 3 game sweep since the Grizzlies beat this weekend’s opponent, the Tulsa Oilers on December 27th, 29th-30th, 2019 at Maverik Center. Joe Wegwerth also played a big role in that series, scoring a hat trick against the Oilers on December 27th.
