The Toronto native also ranks seventh in the AHL with a team-high 31 points and tenth in the league with a team-best 13 goals in 28 contests this season, and paces the IceHogs with a +6 plus/minus rating.

McLean, 33, shares fourth on Rockford with 19 points (7g-12a) in 29 regular-season AHL tilts. The Comox, British Columbia, native has posted 162 points (56g-106a) in 385 career regular-season games over parts of six NHL seasons with Chicago (2002-04), Colorado Avalanche (2005-07) and Florida Panthers (2007-09) and registered one assist in eight Stanley Cup Playoffs games with Colorado in 2006.
