Soderblom Shines in Shootout Shutout Win
Last Saturday, IceHogs goaltender Arvid Soderblom made 36 saves in a 1-0 shootout win at Chicago, the first shootout-shutout win since Lars Johansson’s 38 saves in a 1-0 shootout win at Manitoba on Feb. 22, 2017. The IceHogs participated in two other SO/SO contests in their history:

Oct. 13, 2012 – Carter Hutton makes 31 saves in 1-0 SOL at Chicago

Whole Lotta Extra Hockey
Dating back to Jan. 23, the IceHogs have skated in four consecutive games that have gone beyond regulation time and featured two shootout wins (Jan. 23 vs. TX, 3-2 and Jan. 29 at CHI, 1-0) and two overtime losses (Jan. 26 vs. Iowa, 2-1 OTL and Jan. 28 at MIL, 2-1 OTL).

This is the most consecutive games beyond 60 minutes of play since the club appeared in four-straight games from Mar. 10-16, 2018 (2 OTW, 1 OTL, 1 SOL). The team record for the most games going into overtime is five, set twice from Feb. 3-11, 2017 (1 OTW, 3OTL, 1 SOW) and Nov. 30-Dec. 8, 2007 (1 OTW, 2 SOW, 1 SOL).
