On April 9th, Joe Lavin signed an ATO with the IceHogs for the final two games of the season after his Notre Dame team lost in the semifinals of the Frozen Four to the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Lavin, ND's captain, recorded 17 points [6G, 11A] in 44 games in his senior year with the Fighting Irish while he patrolled the blue line with fellow Blackhawks prospect, Stephen Johns, who was in his freshman year with the club.
When he came to Rockford, he played pretty good in his first pro game, despite taking two penalties. In his next game, the final of the season against the Chicago Wolves, he registered his first pro point with an assist on David Gilbert's power play goal.
He's a good skater and he's got good size. He has a bright future ahead of him.
Lavin signed a two year entry level contract on April 11th, so he'll be back with the Hogs for his first full pro season next year.
