The IceHogs’ 2013 preseason schedule only featured two contests. Both games were on the road as the BMO Harris Bank Center is undergoing seat renovations. First up for the Hogs was a trip to West Meadows Ice Arena in Rolling Meadows for a tilt against the Wolves, and then it was up to the Kern Center in Milwaukee to take on the Admirals.
The puck dropped for the final time on Blackhawks Prospect Camp at 10:00 this morning for the final scrimmage of the week. With one last chance to show hockey ops and fans what they could do this week, the prospects put on a great show.
Thursday at Blackhawks Prospect Camp brought the second scrimmage of the week. The White Team was looking to even up the “series” since the Red Team took the 5-4 victory in Wednesday’s scrimmage.
Day 3 of Blackhawks Prospect Camp brought the first scrimmage of the week at Johnny’s Ice House West. Team A (White jerseys) and Team B (Red jerseys) dropped the puck at roughly 11:30 a.m.

Before we get to the prospects roundup, a couple quick things. First, please go vote. Even if you don’t think it affects you, there are local questions and races on the ballots around the place that will. And it feels good.
Secondly, we haven’t talked about it much here and I know everyone in the hockey fan world is doing everything they can to not think about or mention meetings between the owners and PS starting again today. I think it’s ok if you want to be cautiously optimistic. Cautiously. There’s no way that Steve Fehr and Bill Daly would have had that long of a meeting Saturday totally off the reservation. It’s a pretty safe assumption that they were in touch with their fearless leaders about what was going on. That doesn’t mean when more people get in the room it won’t be a complete balls-up. But I don’t think anyone’s going to be surprised by what they hear in that room either. And that they’re not going to talk to the media after means they’re more prepared to actually talk instead of posture. No guarantees, many miles to go before we sleep, but I’m not going to tell you to forget it this week either.
Ok, to the kids!
