ROCKFORD — The Rockford IceHogs have signed goaltender Scott Darling to a professional tryout.
Darling is a familiar face around the BMO Harris Bank Center. The 32-year-old split time between the IceHogs and Chicago Blackhawks during the 2014-15 season. He posted a 14-8 record in Rockford and logged nine regular-season wins with Chicago. Darling played a key role in the 2015 NHL postseason, filling in for Corey Crawford and winning five games en route to Chicago’s sixth Stanley Cup.
After serving as Crawford’s primary backup during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, Darling signed a free-agent deal with the Carolina Hurricanes, where he spent two seasons.
Darling played in the International Central European Hockey League last season and attended the Florida Panthers’ training camp in 2021.
