ROCKFORD, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League, announced today that forward Carson Gicewicz (JIS-ev-itch) has agreed to terms on an AHL contract with the club through the 2022-23 season.
Gicewicz, 24, helped the University of Massachusetts to their first NCAA championship in program history last Saturday as the Minutemen defeated St. Cloud State 5-0 at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA. The Orchard Park, New York, native led the club with 17 goals and tied for third with 24 points in 28 games and recorded a hat trick on Mar. 27 vs. Bemidji State to send UMass to the NCAA Frozen Four tournament.
Prior to capturing U.S. college hockey’s ultimate prize, Gicewicz attended St. Lawrence University for three seasons (2016-19) before transferring to UMass and missing the 2019-20 season due to injury. In 101 games at St. Lawrence, the 6-foot-3, 212-pound forward totaled 54 points with 21 goals and 33 assists. He was named a team captain in Nov. of 2018, his junior season, and led the club with 19 points and 15 assists in 31 games.
