IceHogs lose home opener to Griffins, Dach makes professional debut


START WEARING THREE LAYERS OF CLOTHING OUTSIDE, IT MEANS TWO THINGS – THE COLD WEATHER IS BACK AND HOCKEY IS JUST GETTING STARTED. THE ROCKFORD ICEHOGS HELD THEIR HOME OPENER AT THE BMO, WHERE THEY HOSTED THE GRAND RAPIDS GRIFFINS. THIS YEAR’S TOP BLACKHAWKS DRAFT PICK KIRBY DACH WAS IN THE HOUSE AFTER HE WAS ASSIGNED TO ROCKFORD EARLIER TODAY. LOTS OF EXCITEMENT FROM FANS. 1. ICEHOGS GET THINGS STARTED EARLY. ANTON WEDIN WITH THE FIRST GOAL OF THE NIGHT PUT THEM UP WITH A 1-0 LEAD. 2. GRIFFINS WOULD QUICKLY FOLLOW SUIT. THE PUCK GETS PAST COLIN DELIA, PUSHED IN BY JARID LUKOSEVICIUS. THEY’D ADD TWO MORE GOALS TO HAVE A 3-1 LEAD OVER THE ICEHOGS. 3. ROCKFORD STAYS WITH IT. DYLAN SIKURA ADDS IN ANOTHER GOAL. BUT GRAND RAPIDS WAS JUST TOO MUCH. ICEHOGS LOSE 4-2. KIRBY DACH TOOK TWO SHOTS AND DID NOT SCORE. HE PLAYED ALL THREE PERIODS. ((KIRBY DACH, ICEHOG FORWARD)) “Obviously it felt pretty good. The first shift, shift and a half kind of nervous a little bit my first pro game so, trying to take it a little bit step back and just see what it’s about and then after that I kind of felt comfortable. I know there’s long road ahead of me still and I’ve got to take this journey one step at a time.”
