McLaughlin Ties Longest IceHogs Points Streak

IceHogs Go Wild After Holiday Break
Monday’s showdown at Iowa marks the fifth consecutive season the IceHogs battle the Wild in their first game after the Holiday break. During that stretch, the IceHogs are 1-3-0-0 with their lone win coming on Dec. 23, 2017 in a 6-3 triumph in Des Moines.
