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. 28. He has appeared in six contests with the Canucks this year spanning two recalls.

The 26-year-old forward paces the Wolves with 12 goals and ranks second on the team with 12 assists and 24 points in 26 games this season.

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 NHL contests with the Buffalo Sabres last year.

The Wolves face-off against the Peoria Rivermen in an Illinois Lottery Cup matchup at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 6 at Carver Arena. For more information or to buy tickets to Wolves home games, visit chicagowolves.com or call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
