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 […]
The Rockford IceHogs got an influx of new talent last week, with some of the new kids making an immediate impact. The Hogs managed three of a possible six points in three contests this past week. The two newest faces belonged to defenseman Luc Snuggerud and forward Anthony Louis, who both signed amateur tryout contracts […]
To say the Rockford IceHogs have been depleted by the deadline deals of their parent club would be a massive understatement. Hey, that’s the way it goes when you are an affiliate. As the AHL season approaches the final weeks, the fact remains that the Hogs are going to be suffering from a definite lack […]
Tyler Motte of the Rockford IceHogs was active for the bulk of the team’s four-game road trip this past week. For all but about five minutes, Motte was either on the Rockford bench or on the ice. Those missing minutes did create a little activity widespread panic on my twitter account, however.
The Rockford IceHogs got a boost from Vinnie Hinostroza this past week. It doesn’t show much on the score sheet; Hinostroza was credited with a single assist in the three games he played while he and several Blackhawks teammates were sent to Rockford this past week. The Hogs had won three straight before Vinnie came […]
The Rockford IceHogs dropped both of their games this past weekend, firmly establishing themselves in the basement of the American Hockey League. It has been a frustrating season to say the least over in Winnebago County. That said, I really have to blame myself for what got me so riled up yesterday. Yes…I visited the […]
The Rockford IceHogs, AHL affiliate to the Chicago Blackhawks, have not been a good road team this season. This past week was a glaring example of Rockford’s struggles in the home of the opposition. The IceHogs dropped all four games of their most recent road trip, three of which came this week. Rockford did come […]
at Game Time: 8:00PM CST TV/Radio: NBCSN, WGN-AM 720 Rear View Mirror: OilersNation The times, they are a-changing in Edmonton. They’ve got a fancy new building wherein the lights are actually at full power and the benches are on the proper side of the ice, even if that ice is not as fast or as high a quality […]

You best believe I’m going to start calling Alex DeBrincat “Top Cat” when he gets here. Try and stop me. He’s got cat moves and he’s got cat style. You’ve probably seen this already, but if you haven’t the Hawks’ second round pick from June, Alex DeBrincat, is absolutely torching the OHL so far this season. […]
