The Jackson, Wyo. native has posted a 9-5-2 record with Indy this season, including a 2.46 goals against average and .919 save percentage.

Carruth started three regular season games for the IceHogs in 2014-15, going 2-1-0, including his first career AHL shutout on Nov. 23 against the Chicago Wolves. The goaltender showed a 1.69 goals against average and .925 save percentage in his three appearances for Rockford.

Next Home Game: Jan. 3 vs. Milwaukee Admirals at 4 pm. The first 2,500 in the gates will receive a pack of Rockford IceHogs trading cards compliments of the Rockford Register Star. After the game, the team will host a postgame skate where fans can skate with their favorite IceHogs on the BMO Harris Bank Center ice. Skates will not be provided.
