Former Manhattanville All-American Mickey Lang '11 continued his rise up the professional hockey ranks this week by signing a contract with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, Chicago Blackhawks General Manager of Minor League Affiliations Mark Bernard announced on Thursday.
By making the leap from the CHL, Lang joins former Valiants Neil Clark '06 (Rochester Americans) and Andrew Gallant '07 (Hartford Wolf Pack) as the third Valiant to reach the AHL, which is the top level of professional hockey beneath the NHL in North America.

He is an example of what hard work and dedication can do.”
