IceHogs get season opening rematch with the stars.


The Rockford IceHogs won’t have to wait long to try to earn a little payback against the team that knocked them out of the playoffs this past season.

They will host their 2018-19 home opener on Saturday, Oct. 13 against the Texas Stars at 6 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center. The contest is a rematch of last season’s Western Conference Finals in which the IceHogs and Stars battled to a Game 6 in the 2018 Calder Cup playoffs.


Saturday’s contest will also be fans’ first chance to see the full IceHogs roster in action at home in the 2018-19 season. The IceHogs finished second in the Western Conference in home wins and third in winning percentage at home during the 2017-18 campaign.


The IceHogs will release their full 2018-19 regular-season schedule on Wednesday, July 11. The 2018-19 season is the Hogs’ 20th season of professional hockey and 12th as the primary AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks.
