ROCKFORD, Ill. – The American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs today announced they have recalled defenseman Josh McArdle from their ECHL affiliate, the Indy Fuel.
McArdle, 24, has spent the majority of the season with the Fuel, logging three points (1g, 2a) and 15 penalty minutes in 18 ECHL games. The blueliner is +3 over his last 13 games, skating to an ever-or-better plus/minus rating in 11 of those 13 contests.

Last year, McArdle completed his senior year at Brown University, where he scored two goals with four assists in 31 games as captain of the Bears.
