Rockford IceHogs Hire New Head Coach

Hogs Banner Edit

The Rockford IceHogs have hired their new head coach.

According to,

“The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have hired Jeremy Colliton to serve as head coach of the organization’s top minor league affiliate, the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.”

“Colliton spent the last four seasons as the head coach in Sweden. Additionally, he had stints with Rogle Angelholm (2009-10) in the Swedish Elite League and Mora IK (2013-14) in Sweden.”

It was going to be hard for the IceHogs to replace longtime coach, Ted Dent. He had a good connection with Rockford.

What better way to do it, than hire a guy that has experience coaching in Sweden.

Rockford has a deep Swedish history. He lived and coached there.

The Chicago Blackhawks have several Swedish players in their system, especially playing in Rockford. He has the background to work with those players.

They should have Hog Talk at the Stockholm Inn.

The Blackhawks seem to be big fans of players from Sweden.

All kidding aside, he has been very successful, Hopefully, he can lead the team to a championship.
