New game photos posted: The IceHogs Photo Gallery is now filled with pictures from the 2007-08 season. Flip through them and relive the IceHogs’s inaugural AHL season at www.icehogs.com/fanzone/photos/. There are also new photos regularly from appearances by Hammy, Hammer and the staff.
Check us out on Facebook.com: If you’re a member of Facebook.com, become a friend of Hamilton E. Hog by searching “Hammy Hog” in the friend finder. You can also become a fan of the Rockford IceHogs by searching “Rockford IceHogs” in the search bar. Both pages will have videos, photos and news from the team. Look for the IceHogs on myspace.com soon, too.
Summer event calendar: Hammy, Hammer, the Rockford IceHogs Booster Club and the IceHogs ticket crew will be out in the community throughout the summer greeting fans, signing autographs and taking photos.
