Olivier Proulx is out for the season with shoulder surgery. The IceHogs are deciding their last roster spot between Bob Nardella and Nathan Lutz. Lutz is currently playing with Milwaukee of the AHL and won't be available to start the series, and Nardella is banged up.
According to Rockford coach Steve Martinson, Billy TIbbetts' two-game suspension in the AHL will not carry over into the UHL playoffs and he'll be able to play Friday. The IceHogs also got Robin Big Snake and Preston Mizzi back from AHL call-ups today.
