Hot Hog: Week 17
Left Wing, Jeremy Morin

During a busy four game week, forward Jeremy Morin picked up points in three of those contests for the IceHogs. The Auburn, New York native posted assists against Toronto and Milwaukee to open the week. Then, with the IceHogs trailing Milwaukee by two goals entering the third period on Sunday, Morin single handedly brought the Hogs back in the game. Morin fired in his 10th goal of the season just 2:20 into the final frame before adding his 11th just 23 seconds later to tie the game and eventually force overtime where the IceHogs defeated Milwaukee. It was Morin’s sixth multi-point outing and first multi-goal game of the season. The fourth year pro is tied for third on the IceHogs scoring chart with 24 points (11g-13a) in 30 games.
