Hogs Take A Break From Hockey
09/30/2009 3:25 PM - Mike Peck
With Opening Night still four days away, the IceHogs did a little team building today. The coaching staff decided to not practice today and instead do a team bowling outing.
We’ll have some fun video of the bowling on out Web site soon and it looked like the guys were having a great time.
Some notes about the team bowling:
-Assistant Equipment Manager Tim Clive was probably the top bowler today. In one game he actually nailed eight straight strikes. It was nine pin strikes, but still impressive.
-Wade Flaherty was also solid, as was Akim Aliu.
-Not sure who made the teams, but Richard Petiot was “stuck” on a team with a bunch of rookies. He was clearly carrying the team!
Back to the hockey side, the Blackhawks will be making a bunch of roster moves soon. All the players are over in Europe so all the players that will be reassigned to the IceHogs will not be here for Sunday’s opener in Peoria as the Hawks squad will travel back together.
Rockford’s roster could receive a major make over before the team even takes the ice for an official game as up to seven players could end up on the IceHogs roster. So stayed tuned for that.
Tomorrow it’s back to hockey and there could be another cut or two made from Rockford camp. The team will now begin to focus specifically on Sunday and Peoria.
Reaching The Peak Of Training Camp

Tonight is preseason game #2 for the IceHogs and with mostly regulars in the lineup, the game will be a good measuring stick to gage where the team is at.
