Here's who won't play for Rockford

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.

I hope that Nardella is on the roster. Lutz is a great dman. Glad to see Proulx won't be up for cheapshots.

Well now they get some good players back from call-up's and will be a team that is fully loaded rather than half loaded.

Blake, how does the Tibbetts suspension not carry over?

What a problem to have -- Nardella or Lutz.

I, too, thought the UHL honored suspensions from other leagues.

I'm not sure because I thought it did, but Martinson said it did not. It might be that regular-season suspensions do not carry over to playoffs.

Now the league says the UHL honors AHL suspensions based on reciprical aggreements. We'll have to wait and see.
