There's good news for the state line athlete.

"The American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs today announced they have agreed to terms with defenseman Josh McArdle on one-year AHL contract that run through the 2019-20 season."

If you see him around this summer, make sure to congratulate him. I look forward to watching him more next season.
