Some quick notes leading into tonight’s game in Rockford between the IceHogs and Houston Aeros.
Brandon Pirri returns to the ‘Hogs lineup after missing the past seven games with a knee injury.
Orland Park, Illinois native and recent Chicago Blackhawks signing Terry Broadhurst will make his professional debut tonight. Broadhurst will at least start out on Brandon Pirri’s left wing.
Broadhurst is listed at 5-11 and 165 pounds and is a left-handed shot.
Mark McNeill and Kyle Beach will be kept together as they were most of Friday night. Rob Flick shifts from center to left wing on their line with Pirri getting back into the lineup.
Paul Zanette is out. He left last night’s game with an upper body injury late in the second period and did not return. He was favoring his right arm as he left the ice with the Rockford trainer.
Here are Rockford’s lineups and scratches for tonight’s game with the Houston Aeros
