IceHogs and Wolves Split to Start the New Year
In their first game of 2022, the IceHogs skated away with a dominating 8-0 victory over the Wolves on Jan. 7. Rockford goalie Collin Delia made 30 saves for his first shutout of the season.

The Wolves then took the rematch on Jan. 17 at BMO Harris Bank Center with a 5-3 victory. Forward Lukas Reichel netted a goal and an assist for the IceHogs in his return from the Chicago Blackhawks and forward Michael Teply added two assists, but the Wolves used a four-goal second period to seal the win. Tonight will be the third and final contest between the two teams in the month of January.

Reichel Dominates Against Wolves
In the IceHogs 8-0 victory over the Wolves on Jan 7, Rockford forward Lukas Reichel led the way with two goals and two assists for four points in the contest. Reichel was the first skater to register a four-point game since Spencer Abbott netted two goals and two assists vs. Milwaukee on Apr. 7, 2015. Despite the Jan. 17 loss to the Wolves, Reichel continued to add to his success against Chicago tacking on a goal and an assist that game and has a Rockford season-high seven game point streak (4G, 7A) heading into tonight’s matchup.

The Great Eight
The eight goals the IceHogs scored against the Wolves earlier this month were the most since the IceHogs claimed an 8-3 win over Iowa on Feb. 8, 2014 and was just one shy of the team’s all-time record (9, 4/19/13 at San Antonio, 9-4 Win). In the head-to-head series, it is the most goals the IceHogs have EVER scored against the Wolves and the most since taking a 7-4 win in Rockford on Nov. 3, 2019. The most goals the Wolves have ever scored against the IceHogs is also eight, set on Nov. 24, 2007 in an 8-3 setback in Rosemont, IL.

Taking Down the Top Dog
The Chicago Wolves have spent the first half of the season dominating opponents and hold an overall record of 25-7-4-1 and went on an AHL season-long, 12-game winning streak from Nov. 26-Dec.18. However, when they meet the IceHogs, they are 3-3-0-1.
