Bohmbach signs minor league deal w/ Blackhawks


This is old news, but my time is stretched thin these days. Anyway, the Chicago Blackhawks have signed the Bohmber to a minor league deal, and is projected to play w/ the Rockford IceHogs this coming season. This continues a short tradition of Badger players playing in Rockford, as Jake Dowell and Jack Skille have played in Rockford the last two seasons (and will hopefully be in Chicago this winter).

In case you forgot, the Bohmber had a breakout junior year which was followed up by a very solid senior season where he roled as one of the best PKers on the team and Hobey Baker's best option at LW on the top line w/ Craig Smith.

Good Luck to Andy in Rockford, I'm still searching for a new favorite player, but glad I can see the Bohmber in Rockford this coming winter.
