IceHogs Enjoying Home Cooking

Tonight is the fourth game of the IceHogs' season-long, six-game homestand and currently hold a 1-2-0 record during the run. The home stand opened on Friday with a convincing 5-2 win over the Cleveland Monsters behind a goal and two assists from forward Dylan McLaughlin. The Hogs dropped a close 5-4 decision in a rematch with the Monsters on Saturday and fell 5-3 to the Wolves on Monday afternoon.

McLaughlin Stays Hot for IceHogs

With a goal in all three games last weekend, forward Dylan McLaughlin extended his personal point streak to five contests (3G, 5A) and the run is his second five-game point streak this season (1G, 4A from Nov. 27-Dec.17). Forward Brett Connolly, who is currently with the Chicago Blackhawks, holds the longest point streak of the season at six games with four goals and five assists for nine points from Oct. 30-Nov. 19.

Reichel Picks Up Where He Left Off

After a two-game run with the Blackhawks including his NHL debut on Jan. 13 vs. Montreal, forward Lukas Reichel returned to the IceHogs lineup on Monday and registered a goal and an assist in the 5-3 loss to the Wolves. Entering this weekend, he is now on a three-game point streak (4G, 4A) and has five goals and five assists for 10 points in his last five IceHogs games.

Texas Two-Step
