This series marks the Seawolves’ first visit to Huntsville since November 6-7, 1992. The series with Alaska-Anchorage has been dominated by the Seawolves, who have won 17 of 19 meetings. The Chargers’ two victories have both come in Huntsville.
The Seawolves have won four of five, including a sweep of Minnesota State in Anchorage last weekend. UAA, which only had four wins all last season, is now 11-9-2 overall and 7-7-2 in the WCHA, up to fifth in the league standings.
UAH and UAA met in Anchorage back in November, with the Seawolves sweeping the series 3-1 and 6-1. In the first game, Alex Allan’s goal with two minutes left in regulation cut UAA’s lead to 2-1, but the Seawolves responded with a goal 30 seconds later to seal it. In the second game, Chad Brears got the Chargers on the board first, but Anchorage scored six unanswered goals, including four in the third period. Brett Cameron, Scott Allen, and Matt Bailey each had two goals in the series. Allen will be out for this series with an upper-body injury.
After this weekend, the Chargers have three straight road trips: Alaska (Fairbanks, Jan. 31-Feb. 1), Michigan Tech (Feb. 7-8), and Minnesota State (Feb. 14-15). The next home series is Feb. 21 and 22 against Lake Superior State.
