Hot Hog: Week 19
Left Wing, Jeremy Morin
The IceHogs offense heated up during Week 19 and forward Jeremy Morin played a large part in the outburst. The Auburn, N.Y. native had a point in all three of Rockford’s games during the week and shows points in seven of his last nine contests (6g-5a). The fourth year pro began the week by dishing out an assist in Rockford’s 6-4 victory over Hamilton on Tuesday. Then, Morin lead the charge with his first career professional hat trick, and added an assist, in Rockford’s dominating 8-3 win against Iowa. The winger tallied his team-leading 15th goal of the season on Sunday and is now Rockford’s all-time goal scoring leader in franchise history with 71 career goals.
