The IceHogs played in three Midwest Division games to end week 21 and begin week 22 of the AHL schedule. Two of the three games were at the BMO Harris Bank Center in Rockford as the IceHogs took on the Chicago Wolves and the Milwaukee Admirals. The other contest saw the IceHogs travel to Iowa to take on the Wild.

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.
