Rockford, Ill. –  Just a handful of games into his rookie campaign, Kyle Baun suffered a wrist injury that caused the Rockford IceHogs’ forward to miss nearly three months of the 2015-16 season.

The 2016-17 campaign told a different story for the 6-2, 214 lbs. forward. Baun, who followed a nine-point rookie year with a team-high 34 points and award as the IceHogs “Most Improved Player” last season, looks to expand on that success in 2017-18.

Baun’s suffered his wrist injury on Nov. 14, 2015, during his 12th game of the season, and kept him out until Feb. 6, 2016 – a total of 32 games. Being absent from that much hockey provided a unique challenge, for the forward, especially with the injury occurring at such an early point in the season.
