DAWES was recalled on Feb. 17, but did not appear in any games with the Thrashers. He posted three goals and five points in his last three games with the Wolves before his recall, and ranks first on the team and shares fourth in the American Hockey League with 25 goals. The 26-year-old forward also ranks fourth on the team with 42 points in 46 games this season.

The Winnipeg, Manitoba, native has appeared in nine outings with Atlanta this year, notching one assist. He spent last season with the NHL’s Calgary Flames, where he recorded 32 points (14G, 18A) in 66 contests.

Overall, DAWES has amassed 45 assists and 84 points in 208 career NHL outings spanning five seasons with the New York Rangers, Phoenix Coyotes, Flames and Thrashers (2006 to present.)

The Wolves will host the Rockford IceHogs at the Allstate Arena on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
