In what should come as a surprise to no one, the Blackhawks have loaned Kyle Beach to the Rockford IceHogs. So Beach makes his glorious return to a team that asked him to leave last year for disciplinary reasons.
Making the trip with Beach to Rockford are defenseman Ryan Stanton and forward Brandon Bollig. Both of these players were signed by Rockford on Amateur tryouts so they’re in a little bit different situation than Beach.
Stanton played the year in Moose Jaw in the WHL and was signed by the Hawks to a three-year entry deal about a month ago.
Brandon Bollig is a big dumb animal who will probably last the term of his tryout and then move on somewhere else.
The IceHogs take on the Lake Erie Monsters tonight and the Milwaukee Admirals on Saturday at the MetroCentre so if you want up close view of the Blackhawks 2008 1st round pick, you have a couple opportunities.
