The final week of the 2013-14 AHL regular season saw the IceHogs play in 2 final contests with their playoff hopes barely alive. The IceHogs needed to win both games and get some help from other teams—mainly the Oklahoma City Barons—in order to make the post season.

Meanwhile, In Rosemont

Yep. Another brawl featuring the IceHogs and ridiculous jerseys.

Yep. Another brawl featuring the IceHogs and ridiculous jerseys.

Am I writing about another brawl featuring the Chicago Blackhawks‘ AHL team, the Rockford IceHogs?

Of course I am!

Last time, the IceHogs mixed it up with the Detroit Red Wings‘ affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins. This time, the IceHogs would take on the Vancouver Canucks‘ affiliate, the Chicago Wolves. It’s as if the IceHogs are more than willing to take on their parent club’s most deep-seated rivalries and make them their own.

Let’s go on to the video, shall we?

Wolves Wednesday: Defenseman And Goaltender Added!

The Wolves announced yesterday that they signed River Forest native Zach Miskovic to add depth to the blue line. The 27-year-old comes to us from Hershey, where he played 152 games from 2009 to 2012–tallying 13 goals and 32 assists for 45 points. His rookie year included career highs in assists (20) and points (26), and last season gave him playoff experience in three games, where he scored two assists. He came straight to the AHL after four years with St. Lawrence of the ECAC, and we’re looking forward to see what he’ll do to strengthen the Wolves’ defense going forward.

The Wolves also signed a goaltender last week. QMJHL goaltender Mathieu Corbeil-Theriault has been added to the team after anchoring the Saint John Sea Dogs through a 37-10-1 record while posting six shutouts. He has been part of the Q for the past five years, playing 162 games split between the Halifax Mooseheads and now the Saint John Sea Dogs–with whom he gained the 2011 Memorial Cup and advanced to the semis for the same title in 2012, posting a 18-3 record with a GAA of 2.42 and .910 save percentage.

According to team policy, the terms of these deals were not disclosed.

More Miller Time For The Wolves!

If the impending end of the summer is getting you down and you need some more Miller time? The Wolves have you covered–with more Tim Miller, that is.

The Wolves announced on Tuesday that the 25-year-old forward will be returning to the team after making his Calder Cup Playoff debut with them last season. He scored two goals in five games against the San Antonio Rampage, helping his team take the Rampage until the very last possible game of round one. Not bad for a first-timer, eh?

As per team policy, the terms of the deal were not disclosed, but one thing is for sure: we will get the Michigan native’s four years of pro hockey experience for a while longer, and all Wolves fan can rejoice to hear that. Here’s to Miller and his sick flow!

Wolves Keep Haydar!

Welcome back, Darren!

The Chicago Wolves have announced today that they have re-signed Darren Haydar, who led the team in assists with 36 and clocked in second in goals (21) and points (57). This was the tenth time in as many years — so, his entire professional career — that Haydar surpassed 50 points, and the ninth he scored more than 20 goals.

Not bad for a 32-year-old, right?
