he Rockford Icehogs, the Chicago Blackhawks' AHL affliate, is set to open training camp on September 22. Today they announced 13 non-contracted players and five contracted players who will be at camp. Some of these names might sound familiar because they were part of the nine players cut for the Blackhawks camp yesterday.
Of the non-contracted players they invited six forwards (Kyle Bodie, Jared Brown, Emerson Clark, Danile Koger, Matt Lowry & Kyle Stroph) and seven defenseman (Arthur Bidwell, CJ Chartrain, Antoine Corbin, Joe Gleason, Bobby Shea, Tristin Llewellyn & Jordan Southorn). The five players that are under contract are Pat Mullane, Wade Brookbank, Brad MIlls, Jared Nightingale and Viktor Svedberg.
