TOP OF THEIR GAME: The Raiders’ top line of Cole Fonstad, Jordy Stallard, and Parker Kelly combined for six points on Friday night.

NEW CAREER HIGHS: Through just 23 games this season, Cole Fonstad has set new career highs in assists (21) and points (29). With eight goals on the year, he is just three away from tying last year’s benchmark. The former first round pick has 19 goals and 37 assists in 94 career games with the Raiders.
