ROCKFORD, Ill. – The American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs announced today they have recalled forward Dylan McLaughlin from their ECHL affiliate, the Indy Fuel. In addition, defenseman Jack Ramsey has been reassigned from the IceHogs to the Fuel.
McLaughlin, 24, has skated in 25 games with the IceHogs this season, recording two goals and four assists for six points including his first career AHL tally on Jan. 3 at Iowa. He was reassigned to Indy on Feb. 21 and has since appeared in one game with the Fuel in which he picked up an assist.
In 19 total games with the Fuel this year, the Lancaster, New York, product picked up 23 points (13 goals, 10 assists). At the time of his recall to the IceHogs on Jan. 1, McLaughlin led all ECHL rookies in goals and was tied for 11th among first-year professionals in points. He has points in 11 of his last 12 games with the Fuel.
Ramsey, 24, has skated in 40 games with the Fuel this season, adding eight points (two goals, six assists) and 14 penalty minutes. The Farmington, Minnesota native has been called up to the IceHogs five times this season, but has not appeared in a contest.
A rookie this season, Ramsey attended the University of Minnesota the past four campaigns, totaling 24 points (eight goals, 16 assists) in 143 games and helped the Gophers capture consecutive Big 10 Regular-Season Championships during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. He made his pro debut with the Fuel late last season, scoring one goal in four games.
