High On The Hog: Playoff Preview

The Rockford IceHogs concluded the regular season this past weekend. Their season, however, has not drawn to a close just yet. Rockford is preparing for its first-round Calder Cup Playoffs series with the Chicago Wolves, who claimed the top spot in the Central Division. This was, in part, to

High On The Hog: Who Sits?

The Rockford IceHogs are a single point away from earning a spot in the 2017-18 Calder Cup Playoffs. With the Blackhawks season over, there will be a lot of options for Rockford coach Jeremy Colliton this week. Following the conclusion of the NHL season, the organization sent six players to Rockford to fortify the ‘Bago […]

High On The Hog: Leaning On The Vets

When the 2017-18 season got underway, the Rockford IceHogs were fresh-faced piglets with very little veteran presence. The need for experience, especially up front, was painfully evident despite the talent Rockford sported in the early part of the AHL season. Over the course of the past few months, the Hawks organization has infused key veterans […]

High On The Hog: Every Point Counts

The Rockford IceHogs have battled their way into a spot in the AHL’s postseason party…for now. With nine games left heading into action Monday, the Hogs are a point ahead of Iowa for the final playoff spot in the Central Division. Rockford overtook the Wild with two regulation wins in three games this week, including […]

High On The Hog: Keep Pushin’

The Rockford IceHogs, AHL affiliate to the Chicago Blackhawks, have put together a pretty decent point-streak in their last few games. The question is whether or not it will be enough to extend their 2017-18 season. Rockford has four wins over the course of a six-game point streak. Two of their wins in that span […]

High On The Hog: Grinding Out Points

The Rockford IceHogs, AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks, managed just two regulation goals in their weekend road jaunt against their two most familiar division rivals. They still managed to collect three of four possible points as they kept pace in the Central Division standings. The IceHogs still are on the outside looking in as […]

High On The Hog: The Turnabout Of Collin Delia

When the Rockford IceHogs contemplate their annual team awards in a few weeks, they can skip right by the most-improved player award. If Collin Delia hasn’t earned that honor from the team at this point, I’m not sure they’re qualified to give out awards. The rookie goalie, signed to an entry contract by the Blackhawks […]

High On The Hog: Trade Bait

This week’s Rockford IceHogs post is abbreviated. I mean, I could talk about what Blackhawks prospects factored into a weekend split. However, there is a good chance that some of those players will be the property of other organizations. Due to the uncertainty that is the trade deadline, I’ll hold off on some of this […]

High On The Hog: Gotta Beat The Neighbors

The Rockford IceHogs, much like their NHL parent club in Chicago, have been slumping hard in February. As a result, they’ve created some separation between themselves and the teams looking to secure a playoff spot in the AHL’s Central Division. It’s the bad type of separation. The ‘Bago County Piglets may be hitting a wall […]

High On The Hog: Martinsen Lays The Norwegian Wood

The Rockford IceHogs, AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks, were short on the physical element as they prepared to begin the 2017-18 season. Just before the schedule got underway in October, Chicago and Montreal made a swap of forwards. The IceHogs leading point scorer, Kyle Baun, went to the Canadiens organization in exchange for Andreas Martinsen. […]
