The Rockford IceHogs have unveiled their third jersey to be worn during the upcoming season. It is a gray jersey, with black across the shoulders ending with the Blackhawks logo at the top of the arms. The arms and waist have a red stripe between black stripes. They feature black numbers outlined in silver, further outlined by black.

The front crest features a simple “ICEHOGS” large on top and “ROCKFORD” below. In between is a silhouette of a hog.

It is an interesting look. It very much as a retro look to it, but the metallic silver touches give a modern feel.

Today, Sunday, September 24, marks the first official practice of the Rockford IceHogs. Training Camp will run through Monday, October 2. Practices will be held at the BMO Harris Bank Center and are closed to the public.

The roster of the IceHogs is starting to take shape. The Chicago Blackhawks have assigned the following players to Rockford: forwards Matthew Highmore, Matheson Iacopelli, Luke Johnson, Graham Knott and Anthony Louis, Kyle Baun, defensemen Carl Dahlstrom, Robin Norell and goaltender Jeff Glass. The IceHogs have also invited forward Alex Kromm and goalie Jeremy Brodeur to Training Camp.

Brodeur is the son of Hall of Fame Goalie Martin, who is also the Assistant GM of the St. Louis Blues. Brodeur will battle Glass and Matt Tomkins for the goalie job.
