PEORIA -- Right wing Darren Haydar's 3-point performance and goaltender Matt Climie's 38-save shutout led the Chicago Wolves to the franchise's 500th American Hockey League win -- 3-0 over the Peoria Rivermen on Saturday night at Carver Arena.

The Wolves are the 22nd team in the AHL's 77-year history to equal the 500-victory milestone and they accomplished the feat faster than any team -- needing 925 regular-season games.
