Second-year defenseman leads Rockford in points

Rockford, Ill.- The American Hockey League announced the 2011 All-Star Teams on Tuesday and Rockford IceHogs defenseman Brian Connelly was named to the Western Conference squad.

Connelly, 24, leads all Rockford skaters with 24 points, including a team-best 20 assists on the season. The Bloomington, Minn. native is the only IceHogs skater to have appeared in all 36 games so far in 2010-11.  His 24 points are just 11 shy of his rookie season total from a season ago.

The 5-10 defenseman leads Rockford with 11 power-play points, all assists, and is tied for the team lead with five multi-point games. In his second full season in Rockford, Connelly is Rockford’s all-time points leader among AHL blue-liners, amassing 62 points in 123 career games in an IceHogs uniform.

Prior to turning pro, Connelly skated four seasons at Colorado College (NCAA) and totaled 114 games while accumulating 8g-55a-63pts with the Tigers.

Next Home Game: Wednesday, Jan. 12 vs. Houston Aeros: Game time is 6:35 p.m. Wednesday is another Taco Bell Dollar Day as the IceHogs welcome the Aeros to the MetroCentre. Fans can enjoy dollar Bud Selects, Vienna Beef hotdogs, Pepsi Products and companion tickets. Houston makes their second of four trips to Rockford.
