High On The Hog: Kinks In Cleveland

The Rockford IceHogs, AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks, elected to forgo preseason exhibition games heading into the 2018-19 season. Ergo, this past weekend’s action in Cleveland was the first in which the piglets faced off against another team. The results were a bit underwhelming. Rockford dropped two games to the Monsters to open the […]

High On The Hog: That Time Of Year

The calendar is telling me that hockey is soon to be underway for the Blackhawks AHL affiliate. That would be the Winnebago County Flying Piglets, known to folks in these parts as the Rockford IceHogs.

High On The Hog: Wish List

The Rockford IceHogs are set to be comprised primarily of prospects for the second straight season. With several defensive prospects signed to contracts this spring and a slew of returning forward prospects, there isn’t much room for veteran contracts. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a need for them, however. It was very apparent that […]

High On The Hog: A Look At Forward

There were many new faces at forward for the Rockford IceHogs in the 2017-18 season. On a roster that went through some changes in the latter half of the campaign, there was a lot to cover in this area. I’ve previously cast a magnifying glass on the goalies and defensemen in recent posts. For now, […]

High On The Hog: An Eye On The D

The Rockford IceHogs were deep on the defensive side in 2018-19. It was in this area where the club had an abundance of experience to start the season. It only got better in the spring as some key pickups further strengthened Rockford on the way to a long playoff run. Back with a look at […]

High On The Hog: In The Cage

The Rockford IceHogs had a bit of a revolving door when it came to the crease this past season. Injuries to some key personnel made for some vertical movement for several of the goalies in the organization. As the first installment of some “in-depth” looks at the Hawks AHL affiliate, let’s cast our gaze squarely […]

High On The Hog: A Season In Review

The Rockford IceHogs had themselves one heck of a playoff run to cap the 2017-18 season. They came up a bit short of hoisting a Calder Cup, but still wound up as one of the last four teams standing in the AHL’s postseason tournament. (tap…tap…tap…) The piglets were eliminated by Texas in six games in […]
