Hot Hog: Week 10
Garret Ross, Left Wing
After dropping a 3-2 game to Charlotte in overtime on Thursday, forward Garret Ross sparked the IceHogs offense in Saturday's rematch against the Checkers. Ross scored the game's first goal in the opening frame when he finished off a nice pass from Joakim Nordstrom. Then, the rookie added his second marker of the night in the middle frame to record his first career multi-goal game. The second period strike stood as the game winner, the first of Ross' career, as the IceHogs went on to win 5-3.
