Everything Else
The Rockford IceHogs continue to limp toward the end of the 2016-17 campaign. The Blackhawks AHL affiliate dropped a weekend set with Grand Rapids, losing in Michigan Friday before being shutout at the BMO Harris Bank Center the following evening. Since losing several top scorers at the NHL trade deadline, the Hogs have not fared […]
Everything Else
The Rockford IceHogs, AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks, dropped to the vicinity of the Western Conference cellar with three losses this past week. There is a logical explanation for the IceHogs lounging near the bottom of the league through 19 games. Rockford just isn’t that darned good up front. Shall I elaborate? If I […]

The Rockford IceHogs, AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks, rebounded from a rough start to the 2016-17 season this past weekend.

Rockford re-signed captain Jake Dowell for next season and said […]

There was some big rookie impact to go with some surprising veteran production over the course of the campaign. When all […]

The piggies of Winnebago County finished the season on a positive note and will be facing off with the Lake Erie Monsters in the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs. I’m going to eschew the normal recaps this week and concern myself with Rockford’s immediate […]
Everything Else
The Rockford IceHogs have put in a lot of travel miles on the road this season. What’s two thousand more this week? After dropping two of three games this past week, Rockford is embarking on its last road trip of the regular season. For their sake, I hope their mode of travel will be airplane. […]
