Despite missing part of the season due to injury, Wolf led the Rattlers in points for the third straight season. He won the Warrior Offensive Player of the Week in the last week of the regular season when he scored the game-winning goal late in the fourth quarter against Ohio as part of a four-point night. The win clinched a spot in the postseason for the Rattlers.
