This week we’re joined by Mike Peck, play-by-play voice of the Rockford IceHogs, to preview the 2012-13 IceHogs’ team.
On this show we discuss the progressions made in the games of prospects Carter Hutton, Brandon Bollig, Dylan Olsen, Ryan Stanton, Joe Lavin and others. We take a look at who will emerge as the IceHogs team leaders and captains for this season, the changes in Jeremy Morin‘s game, the impact Rob Flick can have in the Rockford lineup, Pete Leblanc‘s journey to an NHL contract, Rostislav Olesz‘s status as well as the potential IceHogs roster should the NHL Lockout proceed as expected.
Mike also gives us the scouting report on Rockford signing Martin St. Pierre.
We discuss the ramifications of today’s Michal Rozsival signing by the Blackhawks and how that move will impact Rockford’s roster. [see Depth Chart]

PuckChatter~Radio will return next week with the first show of the dreaded NHL Lockout period.
**Next week seems like the perfect time to do some Blackhawks prospects / Rockford IceHogs Q&A from you, the listener. So if you have any questions in general about this season’s IceHogs, or follow ups to anything Mike and I discussed on this show, post those questions in the comment section below, or its probably better to email those to me directly at PuckChatter@Gmail.com.
And again, if you missed last week’s interview with former Blackhawk Steve Ludzik, check it out! Ludzy is a tremendous interview and was very generous with his time with us. As always, he told some great stories and dropped some interesting nuggets down for us.
**I should point out a correction from the show. I misspoke. Michal Rozsival’s deal is a 1-year, $2M agreement.
