IceHogs: Accolades Continue for Veteran Defenseman Cody Franson

After the IceHogs released their team awards, Cody Franson added another feather in his cap by being named to the AHL Central Division All-Star team.

After a 32-game AHL season, the Rockford IceHogs were represented in their division’s All-Star selections.

Defenseman Cody Franson earned Central Division All-Star honors after his 17 points landed him second among IceHogs skaters and 13th among blueliners in the AHL. Franson recently took home Rockford’s Most Valuable Player and Best Defenseman honors for the 2021 campaign.

Although the AHL won’t be holding any All-Star festivities, it’s still an honor for the selected players whose performances deserve league-wide recognition.

Franson, 33, was a valuable asset to the team on and off the ice in what was an AHL season like never before. Young defensemen such as Wyatt Kalynuk, Nicolas Beaudin, and Isaak Phillips reaped the benefits of playing with such an experienced veteran.
