In a move that evokes memories of Cristobal Huet being shipped off many moons ago, the Chicago Blackhawks loaned defenseman David Rundblad to the Swiss National League’s ZSC Lions.

This comes after the Blackhawks initially waived and demoted the blueliner.

While there’s a Huet connection in NHL team (Blackhawks) sending an ill-fitting player to Switzerland, the big difference is that this doesn’t appear to provide Chicago with any extra cap relief.
