Hogs Salute Armed Forces on Military Appreciation Night

Reichel Hat Trick Propels IceHogs to Victory
On Sunday, IceHogs forward and Chicago Blackhawks prospect Lukas Reichel netted his first AHL hat trick, helping the IceHogs defeat the Manitoba Moose, 4-3, at BMO Harris Bank Center. He is the first IceHogs player to net a hat trick since Brandon Pirri’s three-goal game against the Chicago Wolves on Apr. 7, 2021. It is the 25th IceHogs hat trick in their AHL history and the 16th to be scored at BMO Harris Bank Center. Watch Reichel’s Hat Trick

Connolly Heating Up
With an assist in Sunday’s win over the Moose, forward Brett Connolly extended his personal point streak to three games with a goal and three assists for four points. He is the first IceHogs player this season to have a point streak.

Sorensen Earns Win No. 1
Just over 24 hours after being named Interim Head Coach of the IceHogs, Anders Sorensen earned his first win behind the bench in the victory against Manitoba. Sorensen is in his fourth season as an IceHogs coach, previously serving as an assistant coach from 2018-21 and was promoted to Associate Head Coach this past offseason before moving into the Interim Head Coaching position on Saturday.

Meijer First Goal Fundraiser
When the IceHogs score the first goal of each game this season, Meijer will donate $50 to Rock House Kids, a 501(c)(3) foundation helping feed Rockford’s inner-city youth in a safe nurturing environment. This season's donation to Rock House Kids is currently at $150 after Reichel earned the IceHogs third game-opening goal of the season on Sunday!
