ICEHOGS ANNOUNCE 2010-11 OPPONENTS

By:
07/13/2010 10:05 AM - Rockford, Ill.- The Rockford IceHogs, in conjunction with the American Hockey league, announced their list of opponents for the 2010-11 season on Tuesday. 

The IceHogs are set to play all seven West Division opponents at least six times each, including the new Oklahoma City Barons.  Overall, Rockford will face every team in the Western Conference, with the exception of the Rochester Americans.

Fans will see tough competition in the Midwest again as the Hogs face-off against Peoria, Milwaukee, and Chicago ten times each, splitting the games evenly between cities.

Rockford will travel to the newly renovated Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City three times throughout the year, and play the Texas Stars and the San Antonio Rampage six overall times as well, two less games each than in 2009-10.  To round out the West, the IceHogs will meet Houston eight times in 2010-11.

Outside of the West Division the IceHogs have four games against Abbotsford, six against Grand Rapids, two against Hamilton, six against Lake Erie, four against Manitoba, and two against Toronto.  This is a familiar schedule for Rockford as those numbers were the same last year, with the exception of two less contests against Grand Rapids compared to last year.  Rockford does not play anyone outside of the Western Conference for the second year in a row.

Below is a full list of home dates against each team (all teams have the same number of home and road dates against each opponent):

North Division
Abbotsford Heat – 2
Grand Rapids Griffins – 3
Hamilton Bulldogs – 1
Lake Erie Monsters – 3

West Division
