McLaughlin Picks Up Where He Left Off
After missing four games on COVID-19 protocol, forward Dylan McLaughlin returned to the IceHogs lineup last weekend at Texas and picked up a goal and an assist over the two games against the Stars. He enters Tuesday’s showdown on a six-game point streak (1G, 5A), tied for the longest streak by an IceHogs skater this season with Brett Connolly (4G, 5A) from Oct. 30-Nov. 19.

Slavin and Mitchell Return from Blackhawks
On Sunday, the Chicago Blackhawks assigned forward Josiah Slavin and defenseman Ian Mitchell to the IceHogs. Slavin skated in nine games with the Blackhawks, including his NHL debut on Dec. 2 at Washington, and picked up his first NHL point (assist) the same night. Mitchell has skated in six games with the Blackhawks this season, tallying one assist. In his 19 contests with the IceHogs this season, he leads the club with nine assists and sits second on the team with 12 points.

IceHogs and Admirals Renew Rivalry
Entering Tuesday, the IceHogs are 2-1-0 against the Admirals in the head-to-head series. The Admirals opened the 12-game series with a 5-2 win on Nov. 26 at Rockford, but the IceHogs responded with 2-1 (Nov. 28 at Rockford) and 3-1 (Dec. 1 at Milwaukee) victories. IceHogs forward Evan Barratt leads the overall series with two goals and an assist for three points.

Admirals Keeping the Boat Afloat
Since last Sunday, the Admirals saw six players and two coaches receive callups to their NHL affiliate, the Nashville Predators, and added three players from the ECHL’s Florida Everblades. Through all of the commotion, the Admirals have earned points in six of their last seven games (5-1-1-0) and saw a season-high six-game point streak come to a close (5-0-1) on Saturday in a 4-2 loss to the red-hot Chicago Wolves. The Wolves are currently on an AHL season-high, 12-game winning streak and 13-game point streak!

Just before their game on Saturday, the Admirals saw four players return from Nashville.
