Rockford, Ill. - Chicago Blackhawks General Manager of Minor League Affiliations Mark Bernard announced on Monday that the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs have loaned forward Brandon Svendsen to the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye.
The 27-year-old forward has yet to lace up during the 2012-13 season due to injury.
During the 2011-12 campaign, Svendsen competed in his third professional season, appearing in five contests with the Binghamton Senators and 28 games with the Kalamazoo Wings before joining Rockford in mid-January. In 39 tilts with IceHogs, the Maplewood, Minn. native tallied four goals and 10 assists.
Svendsen has 125 career professional points (45g-80a) and has also spent time with the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers, and the ECHL’s Elmira Jackals and Idaho Steelheads during his professional career.
