Andrew Mangiapane (4-8-12) added a goal and an assist last night for the Stockton Heat, giving him the AHL lead in points. Mangiapane has now recorded at least one point in all seven games this season for the Stockton Heat.
The second-year winger continued his strong to the season start last night, despite linemate Mark Jankowski’s departure to Calgary. Mangiapane and Garnet Hathaway did not skip a beat with Brett Findlay slotted in between the two in the 4-3 shootout loss last night in San Diego. Mangiapane had a hand in two of three goals and also scored in the first round of the shootout.
Mangiapane’s third period assist punched his name into the Stockton Heat record books, making him the first player in club history to record an assist in six consecutive games. The 21-year-old passed Colby Robak and Linden Vey on the list, and he now stands alone in Heat history.
