Heat Melts the Hogs 2-1

Rockford's Brandon Segal drives the puck towards the net, while Abbotsford's Leland Irving blocks his way.


The sparks always fly when the IceHogs play against the Abbotsford Heat and Saturday night’s game was no exception. The tension between the teams came to a boil several times, resulting in 2 fights and a handful of scrums. The game itself appeared to be heading for overtime when Ben Walter scored a goal late in the 3rd period, securing the 2-1 win for the Heat.

Saturday night was also Teddy Bear Toss Night and Rockford Fans did not disappoint. A grand total of 1,221 stuffed animals were tossed by fans to the ice after Brett McLean scored the first goal for the IceHogs at 14:26 in the first frame.

About Kris Gray

I've been a lifelong resident of Rockford, raised in a family that avidly followed the sports of Pro Wrestling, Roller Derby, Nascar and the Chicago Bears. My day job is in nursing, employed at a local senior residential complex in the Rehab Unit of the Health Center. I've had a lifelong love for photography, but became more passionate about it several years ago. I'm a Wife, a Mother to 3 grown children & 2 silly Pugs, and a Grandma to 4 wonderful granchildren. I have a warped snarky sense of humor and a avid reader of books. I started on this wild and crazy ride into Photojouralism when I was asked to join Patrick & Jane's team covering the Chicago Blackhawks' AHL affiliate Rockford IceHogs for the ChiTownDailyNews and ChicagoNow Call of the Wild blogs. I am currently learning the ins & outs of professional Rodeo and plan to follow regional area rodeos as my day job's schedule & the price of gasoline allows.
