Slavin’s Pro Career is Off and Running:
Appearing in his professional debut on Mar. 28 vs. Chicago, forward Josiah Slavin netted his first professional goal in the third period. The rookie carried the confidence into last Saturday’s rematch, picking up his second tally in just his second pro game.
Franson Leads the Way
Defenseman Cody Franson leads the IceHogs with 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) and enters tonight’s game at Chicago on a four-game point streak, tied for the longest point streak by an IceHogs skater this season. Forwards Reese Johnson and Dylan McLaughlin reached four-game streaks earlier this year.
