It's Been A While My Friend
The IceHogs battle the Moose for just the second time this season after hosting their Central Division rivals way back on Nov. 8 at BMO Harris Bank Center. Forward Lukas Reichel netted his first AHL hat trick and forward Josiah Slavin added two assists in a 4-3 victory. Recap & Highlights

Head North, Young Man
The IceHogs travel to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for the first time since the 2019-20 season and last saw the Moose at Canada Life Centre on Feb. 13, 2020. The IceHogs went 2-2-0 in Winnipeg that season and hold an all-time road record of 12-9-1-0 against the Moose.

Hardman Hardly Slowing Down
After missing four contests due to an ankle injury, forward Mike Hardman has picked up seven goals and three assists for 10 points in his last nine games including his second three-point game (2G, 1A) of the season on Feb. 26 vs. Texas.

IceHogs Turn the Page After Busy February
With their upcoming road trip, the IceHogs flip their calendars to March after finishing a busy 12-game month of February. The club went 6-6-0 in the month and featured a season-high, four-game winning streak from Feb. 11-16. Defenseman Ian Mitchell led the scoring attack in the month with 11 points (5G, 5A) in 12 games with Hardman sitting a close second with his 10-point month.

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 $900!
