Tough Times for Two Forwards as Rockford IceHogs Make a Move

In a surprising turn of events, the Rockford IceHogs have decided to loan forwards Kyle Maksimovich and Josh Maniscalco to the Indy Fuel of the ECHL, marking a challenging phase in their careers.

Kyle Maksimovich, 25, recently made his season debut with the IceHogs on January 5 against the Texas Stars. Despite his efforts, the forward now finds himself headed to the ECHL. In his time with the Indy Fuel this season, Maksimovich has put up 19 points, showcasing his offensive capabilities with 10 goals and 9 assists in 25 games.

Josh Maniscalco, 24, has also faced a setback, managing only four assists in 12 games with Rockford this season. The decision to send him to the ECHL reflects the team's evaluation of his performance.



This move comes as a surprising development, indicating a challenging period for both players. As the IceHogs prepare for their upcoming game against the Grand Rapids Griffins on Friday, January 12, the team's decision to loan these forwards suggests a reevaluation of strategies and player rotations in pursuit of better team dynamics.
