Wolves Wednesday: Wolfy Tunes and Mark Mancari’s 400th Point

I THROW MY HANDS UP IN THE AIR SOMETIMES SAYING, "AAYO I'M A WOLF, YO." (Picture found via tumblr.)

The Chicago Wolves are setting trends in the AHL. First the whole Twitter thing — which is still hilarious, by the way — to something many Blackhawks fans might remember: individual goal songs for each player when they score a goal.

Yes, that’s right, the Chicago Wolves have embraced the Blackhawks’ old tradition of playing individual goal songs (and save songs for the goaltenders) after they score a goal. It’s a great idea and adds more personality to the players and makes games a bit more audience interactive. Blackhawks fans may recall their own individual goal songs — ‘Sharp Dressed Man’ for Patrick Sharp, ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’ for Patrick Kane, ‘Johnny B. Goode’ for Jonathan Toews, etc. It adds a lot of fun to the atmosphere at games and should be something all AHL teams embrace. At least in my opinion. Most current individual goal/save songs used by the Wolves at home games can be found below (thanks toThe Province). You can add them to your Wolves Playlist on your iPod. Or something.

And the best one?

I honestly wouldn’t mind if more teams adopted this concept. Even up to the NHL level. Teams would do well to at least have a distinct goal song for every team like how you hear Chelsea Dagger and know it’s the Blackhawks. Buuut that’s just my opinion.
