The IceHogs had a very important stretch of games in the past week as they were slated to play 4 games in 6 days.

The IceHogs wrapped up week 4 of the AHL schedule with two games at the BMO Harris Bank Center this past weekend. The Hogs were riding on momentum from their 3 point Canada trip from earlier in the week into their contests with Charlotte and Texas on Saturday and Sunday.
