The Vancouver Canucks have reassigned right wing Mark Mancari to the Chicago Wolves.

MANCARI skated in three games with Vancouver after being recalled on Dec. 15. The 26-year-old forward paces the Wolves with 10 goals and ranks second on the team with 11 assists and 21 points in 24 games this year.

The London, Ontario, native ranked fifth in the American Hockey League with a career-high 32 goals and shared 14th in the league with 64 points in 56 games with the Portland Pirates en route to being named to the 2011 AHL First All-Star Team last season. He also collected 8 points (G, 7A) in 20 National Hockey League contests with the Buffalo Sabres last year.

MANCARI will join the Wolves for their game against the Abbotsford Heat at 7 p.m. tonight at the Allstate Arena. For more information or to buy tickets to the game, visit chicagowolves.com or call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
