IceHogs Begin 2022 with Red-Hot Offense
In their first games of 2022 last weekend, the IceHogs erupted for 14 goals and outscored their opponents 14-2! The IceHogs shutout the Chicago Wolves, 8-0, on Friday at BMO Harris Bank Center and skated to a 6-2 win at Milwaukee on Saturday.

Goals for the Record Books
With their 14 goals over two games last weekend, the IceHogs tied a team record for the most goals scored in a two-game span. On Apr. 19, 2013, the IceHogs defeated the San Antonio Rampage 9-4 and earned a 5-3 win at Texas the next night. The nine goals vs. San Antonio is the most the IceHogs have scored in a single AHL game in their history.

Lukas Reichel Takes Off in 2022
IceHogs forward and Chicago Blackhawks prospect Lukas Reichel scored three goals and three assists in the two games last weekend, earning him the AHL Player of the Week award. He picked up two goals and two assists for four points on Friday vs. Chicago and added a goal and an assist on Saturday at Milwaukee. He is the first IceHogs player to earn the AHL’s weekly award since defenseman Adam Clendening grabbed two goals and five assists for seven points in three games in week 30 of the 2017-18 season.

Reichel is the first IceHogs skater to register a four-point game since Spencer Abbott netted two goals and two assists vs. Milwaukee on Apr. 7, 2015.

Pirri Nets Fifth Career AHL Hat Trick and Chips Away at IceHogs Goal Record
Forward Brandon Pirri netted his fifth career AHL hat trick and third with the IceHogs on Saturday at Milwaukee and is now just 11 goals away from tying Jeremy Morin (90) for the IceHogs’ all-time goal scoring record.

Meijer First Goal Fundraiser
