IceHogs coach, forward suspended one game

Chicago Blackhawks AHL affiliate coach Ted Dent and forward Cody Bass were each suspended one game for their actions during the Rockford IceHogs-Iowa Wild game Wednesday, the league announced Friday.

Bass, who signed a one-year deal with the Blackhawks in July, left the IceHogs’ bench after the Wild’s Curt Gogol committed a charging penalty at 5:31 of the third period Wednesday. Bass received a 10-minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Gogol was given 30 minutes worth of penalties, including a game misconduct for charging and a game misconduct for being involved in his second fight of the night. Gogol received a two-game suspension Friday.

Dent was suspended one game after he received a game misconduct for abuse of officials at the end of the game.

Dent and Bass will sit out the IceHogs’ game against the Chicago Wolves on Friday. The IceHogs lead the AHL with 31 points and have a 15-4-0-1 record.

Wild forward Stephane Veilleux was also suspended two games for a boarding incident on Wednesday. Altogether, the IceHogs received a total of 69 minutes of penalties and the Wild had 46 minutes on Wednesday.
