The Rockford IceHogs graduates are plentiful in the NHL. In total, the American Hockey league has 637 alumni on the National Hockey League rosters this 2014-15 season. At the start of the new season, I thought we’d take a look at our past Hogs gone Blackhawks, won Lord Stanley and more.

  1. Bryan Bickell – IceHogs for 3 seasons 2007-2010 (2 Stanley Cups)
  2. Corey Crawford – IceHogs for 3 seasons 2007-2010 (1 Stanley Cup)
  3. Niklas Hjalmarsson – IceHogs for 2 seasons 2007-09 (2 Stanley Cups)
  4. Marcus Kruger – IceHogs 2012-13 (1 Stanley Cup)
  5. Jeremy Morin – IceHogs for 4 seasons 2010-14
  6. Antti Raanta – IceHogs 2013-14

  16. Troy Brouwer – IceHogs for 2 seasons 2007-09 (1 Stanley Cup) Currently: Capitals
  17. Dustin Byfuglien – IceHogs 2007-08 (1 Stanley Cup) Currently: Jets
  18. Jimmy Hayes – IceHogs for 4 seasons 2010-14 Currently: Panthers
  19. Kent Simpson – IceHogs for 3 seasons 2011-14

Other IceHogs graduates that round out the NHL appearances list are Cam Barker, Nick Boynton, Mike Brodeur, Jake Dowell, Colin Fraser (Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks 2010 and the LA Kings 2012), Jordan Hendry, Carter Hutton, Peter Leblanc, Dylan Olsen, Jack Skille and Ryan Stanton.

The current AHL Rockford IceHogs open their 2014-15 season on home ice at the BMO Harris Bank Center this Saturday, October 11th, hosting the Milwaukee Admirals.  Game time is 7:00 p.m.  It’s been since 2010 the IceHogs have been in the Calder Cup Playoffs and I’m confident they are a team to watch as they give it their all this season.
