After playing 59 games (23G-30A-53Pts) in the regular season and five games in the playoffs (1G-1A-2Pts) with the Prince Edward Island Rocket of the QMJHL, Philippe Paradis was called up by the IceHogs for the end of the regular season. His first game in a Hogs sweater was on April 5th at San Antonio.
During his four games with the club, Paradis looked pretty good. He showed that he has great speed and that he's not afraid to get his nose dirty and throw his body around a bit.
The Carolina Hurricanes' first round (27th overall) draft pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft scored a big goal, the first of his pro career, on April 9th in the Hogs' 4-2 win over the Grand Rapids Griffins. It was set up by Chris DiDomenico and it turned out to be the game winner. Both Paradis and DiDomenico came over to the Chicago organization from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Kris Versteeg trade on June 30, 2010.
Paradis had signed a three year entry level contract with the Leafs on April 21, 2010 before he was traded, so he should be apart of another young group in Rockford for next season.
