The Manitoba Moose have returned from their longest road trip of the 2019-2020 season, going 3-4-0 on the seven game trip.

Since the last Farm Report, the Moose lost to the Milwaukee Admirals, won against the Grand Rapids Griffins and Chicago Wolves before most recently losing to the Rockford IceHogs on Tuesday.

Jansen Harkins continues to be a dominant force. Harkins had 24 points in 15 games in the month of November, and added another assist in his one game so far in December. He leads the AHL in scoring with 28 points in 24 games this year, and was named the AHL Player of the Month for November.

Harkins needs just three more points to match his point total from last season, which was a career high. His 22 assists have surpassed his previous best by six, and he’s played 46 fewer games.

Harkins’ linemates continue to do well. Since the trio was formed, Andrei Chibisov has 13 points in his last 16 games, while Seth Griffith has 15 points in his last 13 games, as he missed a couple of games after taking a shot to the face.

Mikhail Berdin has had a save percentage below .900 in four of his last five games, the one exemption being his lone win in the past five.

Kristian Vesalainen is in his third four-game point drought of the season.

Sami Niku has missed the last three games with injury.

Michael Spacek and Cameron Schilling have returned from time with the Winnipeg Jets, and should be available this weekend.

Manitoba is home for two games (Friday and Saturday evenings) against the Chicago Wolves this weekend, before heading back out on the road for another five games. Their next 16 games are against division rivals, making this next stretch of games vital in their push to make the Calder Cup playoffs.
