The Rockford IceHogs today announced that forward Brandon Pirri has agreed to terms on a professional tryout (PTO) agreement with the club.
Pirri, 30, takes the ice for the first time in 2021-22 after skating in seven games with the IceHogs last season, scoring eight goals and two assists for 10 points including a hat trick performance on Apr. 7 vs. Chicago and a pair of two-goal games (Mar. 3 vs. Grand Rapids and May 10 at Chicago).
In 369 career AHL contests, Pirri recorded 339 points (138G, 201A) and won the John B. Sollenberger Trophy as the AHL’s top point-scorer with 75 points (22G, 53A) during the 2012-13 season with the IceHogs and appeared in four AHL All-Star Games (2012, 2014, 2018, 2019). He is the IceHogs' all-time leader in points (210) and assists (134), ranks third in team history with 76 goals, trailing Jeremy Morin (90), and is sixth with 245 games played. Current IceHogs defenseman Ryan Stanton is seventh with 244 games played with the IceHogs.
Pirri is also the IceHogs all-time leader in shootout goals (17), shootout attempts (30), game-winning goals (15), power-play points (64, 21G, 43A), multi-point games (51) and two-point games (38). On Apr 12, 2013, Pirri set the IceHogs’ all-time, single-game record with six points and five assists in a 7-3 victory over the Chicago Wolves at BMO Harris Bank Center.
