Rockford IceHogs

The Rockford IceHogs are a professional ice hockey and minor league affiliate team of the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks based in Rockford, Illinois.

The IceHogs play in the American Hockey League (AHL), having begun play in the League starting in the 2007–08 season and play their home games at the BMO Harris Bank Center.


The current Rockford IceHogs were founded in 1995 as the Baltimore Bandits and then the team relocated in 1997 to Cincinnati to become the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks.

The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks suspended their operations for the 2005–06 season due to the lack of an NHL affiliate after their previous affiliates, the Detroit Red Wings and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim signed new agreements with the Grand Rapids Griffins and the Portland Pirates, respectively.

The franchise was later renamed the Cincinnati RailRaiders, but they failed to reach a goal of 2,000 season tickets to re-enter the AHL for the 2006–07 season.

On March 19, 2007, the AHL announced that the team had been purchased and relocated them to Rockford, Illinois to become the present-day Rockford IceHogs.
