Rivalries & Top Games to Attend
Chicago Wolves-Rockford IceHogs Rivalry
Rival Team: Rockford IceHogs
The rivalry between the Wolves and IceHogs mirrors the rivalry in the city between the Wolves and the NHL’s Blackhawks. Many die-hard Wolves fans don’t care too much for the Blackhawks helping fuel the rivalry between these two northern Illinois AHL rivals. On the other hand, if you’re a huge Blackhawks fan, there is no better time to attend a Wolves game than when the IceHogs come town as it presents an excellent opportunity to see future Hawks.
Chicago Wolves-Milwaukee Admirals Rivalry
Rival Team: Milwaukee Admirals
Chicago and Milwaukee have a fierce rivalry regardless of the sport, and it’s no different in the AHL. There are always a lot of bragging rights on the line when the Wolves face off with the Admirals making every Wolves-Admirals game a must-see.
