The Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers have swapped a pair of minor league players as part of deadline day. T.J. Brennan will leave the Lehigh Valley Phantoms for the Rockford IceHogs, while Nathan Noel will head the other way.
Brennan has long been a top performer at the AHL level, but this season saw his offensive numbers drop off a cliff. The 30-year old defenseman has just eight points in 28 games with the Phantoms and will look for a new start in Rockford.
Noel meanwhile is playing in the ECHL and has 17 points in 39 games with the Indy Fuel. Perhaps he’ll get a chance at the AHL level with Lehigh Valley, but either way he’ll be joining the Flyers organization for the next few months.
