High On The Hog: Wrapping Up In Rockford

The Rockford IceHogs had themselves a hell of a season. For four months, at least. It was another year of development for the 45 players who spent time toiling on the farm in 2015-16. There was some big rookie impact to go with some surprising veteran production over the course of the campaign.

What A Way To Run A Railroad

Another banner day in great Hawkdom and hockey in general. It’s gone beyond comedic to the surreal at this point. A listless, 5th straight loss to the decidedly in-the-middle Wild, the Hawks most important player looking at some sort of suspension, an organization continuing to act in a most callous, cowardly fashion, and a league […]

Another Fuck Up, Yet Another Chance

Close friend of the program Chris Block tweeted out a story last night about Hawks’ prospect Garret Ross being charged with one count of non-consensual dissemination of sexual images, or in terms you might have heard “revenge porn.” I’m not going to go into what it […]

The Hogs dropped a pair to the antlered ones at home this week before hopping on I-90 East and beating the Wolves. Despite two defeats, some new faces on […]

High On The Hog: Blowout At The BMO

The Rockford IceHogs were atop the AHL’s Central Division going into this weekend’s home and home with the Grand Rapids Griffins. They were coming off an 8-2-1-1 January record and were facing a Griffins team that had dropped five straight. Rockford was recharged following the All-Star break and had the hottest goalie in the league […]

High On The Hog: In The Pink

The Rockford IceHogs donned pink sweaters for breast cancer awareness Saturday night. The Blackhawks AHL affiliate also continued to be in the pink in terms of their position in the Western Conference standings.

With a .662 points percentage, the Hogs sit in second place in the Central Division as well as the AHL’s Western Conference. This week saw a lot of movement […]
