Rockford, Ill. - Chicago Blackhawks General Manager of Minor League Affiliations Mark Bernard announced on Thursday that the Rockford IceHogs have signed forwards Adam Hobson and Mickey Lang to Professional Tryouts (PTO). Rockford also signed forward Kenndal McArdle to an AHL contract.

Lang has tallied 87 career professional points (41g-46a) in 99 games, all with Quad City. The Hillsdale, N.J. native played collegiately at Division III Manhattanville College (NCAA) and notched 83 career points (47g-46a) and was an ECAC West Conference second-team honoree during the 2011-12 season.

McArdle, a 2005 first-round draft choice (#20 overall) by the Florida Panthers, tallied an assist in three tilts with the IceHogs after signing a PTO on Jan. 16. The Toronto, Ontario native previously played this season in 31 games with the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors, where he marked seven goals and 15 assists.
