IceHogs Notes

Soderblom Builds on Season Marks
IceHogs goaltender Arvid Soderblom made a season-high 47 saves last Friday against the Wild, the most an IceHogs goalie has made since Matt Tomkins provided 46 saves in a 2-1 overtime win at Grand Rapids on Mar. 16, 2020. Prior to Tomkins’ feat, former IceHogs goalie and now Chicago Blackhawks netminder Kevin Lankinen set a single-game team record with 55 stops in a 2-1 OT win vs. Milwaukee on Dec. 10, 2019.

Reichel Off to Hot Start
Chicago Blackhawks first-round selection Lukas Reichel (2020, 17th overall) rides a three-game point streak into the week after picking up his first AHL goal and assist in the IceHogs’ 5-3 victory over the Chicago Wolves on Oct. 16, a power-play goal last Friday in Des Moines and an assist against the Wild on Saturday. Overall, he has two goals and two assists for four points in four games with the IceHogs this season.

Pour Pouring on Points After Big Weekend in Des Moines
Forward Jakub Pour scored his first two North American goals last weekend at Iowa and has two goals and an assist in his last two games. He buried his first goal on Friday and add an assist and continued to create offense on Saturday with his second goal of the season.

Hogs Strike First; Open the Meijer First Goal Fundraiser
The IceHogs opened the scoring Friday night at Iowa as forward Jakub Pour earned his first goal of the season at 17:51 of the first period. 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! Last season, the IceHogs and Meijer donated $1,750 to Rock House Kids.
