(scott) kero first burst onto the scene with the icehogs by scoring goals in five of his first six games. that was in april of 2014...two and a half years ago. now's he's hoping to regain that form of a playmaker. the blackhawks sent him down to the icehogs last thursday after he struggled to earn ice time in chicago. he appeared in only eight games. he sat out the last ten inactive. (tanner kero, icehogs center) "it was obviously a little tough when you're not getting in the lineup and not playing. you just had to go to work every day and make sure you're doing all the things right to give yourself that best shot to get back in." (scott) but that shot wasn't coming in chicago...not anytime soon and with the blackhawks struggling at the time changes needed to be made. kero was sent down and icehogs leading scorer vinnie hinostroza was promoted. (scott question) do you understand why the blackhawks sent you down? (kero) "obviously when the team hasn't been doing too well you might have to change things up. unfortunately i wasn't playing a lot. i think they just wanted me to come down and get some games in. obvoiusly vinnie was doing really well down here. he deserved a shot to go up there and prove what he can do. i've got to try to do the same thing." (scott) kero has split the last two seasons between rockford and chicago so switching teams isn't anything new for him. kero is playing center with the icehogs with high-scoring rookie matthew highmore on his wing. (jeremy colliton, icehogs coach) "we moved highmore to the wing. i thought he was real good in traverse city there, and i think that line can be real hard to play against. physical, gritty, and take pucks to the net." (kero) "i think the key here is there's a lot of young guys, a lot of fast guys and i think the tempo has been great. it's a good atmosphere to come to." the blackhawks won in overtime
