The native of Tustin, Calif. was a part of the Silvertips sixth U.S. Division title and second Western Conference title last season, and as a 16-year old was tied for third overall and led all WHL rookie goaltenders with four shutouts while earning a 13-6-0-0 regular season record, .928 save percentage, 2.25 goals-against-average and four assists in 20 appearances.
Wolf earned victories in his first two starts of his career, earning Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week honors the week ending Oct. 29 with 82 saves in 85 shots faced, becoming the youngest goaltender (16 years, 6 months, 11 days) in Silvertips history to earn a victory since Carter Hart (16 years, 1 month, 7 days) in 2014-15.
Wolf played in nine minutes of action in the WHL Playoffs, stopping all four shots faced in his sole appearance, Game 5 of the second round against Portland.
