Defence, 6' 3" 220 shoots right. 59 games with the Heat this season with 3 goals (hello Bouwmeester) and 2 assists. 198 penalty minutes and a -9. 26th overall pick in 2005. 5 games in the NHL with 3 assists... turns 25 before the season begins.

Just a theory. Gillis doesn't strike me as a hiring family kind of guy though.
The Wolves currently have Connauton, Ellington, Erixon, Matheson, Polasek, Sauve and Tanev. Even assuming that Ellington goes to the ECHL and Tanev to the NHL, that's already 5 guys and on top of that they will either want to add Henrik Tommernes or an AHL-level veteran signing. Sweatt just doesn't fit in this organization anymore and would take away development time from more important prospects.
