Donatelli becomes Wheeling’s all-time wins leader


WHEELING, W.Va – In 23 seasons of professional hockey in Wheeling, no head coach has won more games than Clark Donatelli. On Friday night, Donatelli earned his 125th win behind the bench for the Nailers, breaking Doug Sauter’s previous mark of 124.

The contest was tied at one in the third period, when Wheeling exploded for three goals against the Kalamazoo Wings. Franky Palazzese preserved the 4-1 triumph at WesBanco Arena, making 40 saves.
