-Sam Carrick scored a goal against Chicago on Saturday and now leads the IceHogs with 13 points (7g, 6a) over his last 20 games, dating to Dec. 21. Carrick ranks first on the team in goals in that span and is two assists shy of the Hogs' top total during that time.
-Jeremy Langlois scored his third goal of the last four games during Saturday's OTL at Chicago. The forward netted just one goal through his first 33 games this year prior to scoring against Iowa on Jan. 27 and Jan. 28 and at Chicago on Feb. 4.
-The IceHogs have gone winless in seven straight games following a pair of overtime losses to Milwaukee and Chicago last week. The Hogs are 0-3-4-0 during the current skid.
-Rockford scored more than two goals for the first time in 10 road games during Friday's 4-3 OTL at Milwaukee. Overall, the Hogs have eclipsed the two-goal mark in just five of 24 road games this year.
-Recently-acquired forward Michael Latta tallied an assist in each of Rockford's two games last week. The former Reign skater totaled just 2g-4a-6pts in 29 games with Ontario at the beginning of this season, but has since collected three assists in his first five games with the IceHogs from Jan. 25 - Feb. 4.
-The Hogs notched a point in Saturday's OTL to Chicago, and currently trail the Wolves in points in the 2016-17 Illinois Lottery Cup series, 13-9. The IceHogs must win the final two matchups of the season in regulation to avoid dropping the full season series to the Wolves for the first time since 2013-14.
-Rockford returned from the All-Star Break and earned two out of a possible four points against two of the top three teams in the division.
