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.
