Blackhawks' Depth To Boost IceHogs

A deep pool of talent in the Blackhawks' system should pay off for the IceHogs.
ROCKFORD-The Blackhawks have built their Stanley Cup Championship on a foundation of talented young players. There are more in the pipeline. The organization has depth that trickles down to Rockford and right on to the junior hockey leagues.  Many of those young players have been in camp with the Blackhawks the last two weeks.

Wade Brookbank was in the Blackhawks camp until recently. Now he's back in Rockford in camp with the IceHogs. He's impressed with the depth in the organization.

"I think we're (the IceHogs) really strong depth-wise. The Blackhawks will, and I think we'll be really strong here in Rockford. We'll have a strong defensive core that's going to help. We'll have strong forwards. Hopefully we'll get off to a good start and make our playoff push a little earlier this year."
