-Pirri is the third IceHogs skater to get traded to the Panthers this season, joining Jimmy Hayes and Dylan Olsen in Florida

-Rookie center Alex Broadhurst tied an IceHogs single season record with his third penalty shot attempt on Saturday in Oklahoma City

-Rockford has scored four or more goals in 10 of their last 11 games, averaging 4.55 goals per contest
