Year In Review:

The 2010 season provided its ups and downs for the IceDogs. The team struggled at points throughout the year, but made a strong push to secure a playoff spot late in the season led by the stellar goaltending of Mark Visentin. Midway through the season the St. Louis Blues assigned Alex Pietrangelo back to the Ontario Hockey League and he was then traded to Barrie along with winger Chris DeSousa and import goaltender Petteri Simila for forward  Ryan Strome, defenceman Simon Gronvaldt, two 2nd round picks, a 3rd round pick and a 9th round pick. Strome was originally the 8th overall pick in the 2009 OHL Priority Selection.

The IceDogs finished 7th in the East and found themselves up against the 2nd seeded Ottawa 67's in the first round of the playoffs. After some very close games, the 67's topped the IceDogs in 5 games, ending a season that was full of growth for one of the youngest teams in the league.
