Eklund has been talking that guy up for awhile, saying that the Chicago Wolves are the closest thing to an NHL franchise in the AHL and Fahey and Kwiatkowski deserved to play in the NHL but who knows. I don't believe anything that he reports, so I'll wait till I see it on TSN but if anything it would be a two way deal I'd guess...
"The Chicago Wolves are virtually an NHL franchise in the way they are run and they are developing players like one, too.
Two players in particular are already getting huge UFA interest and I am told will POSITIVELY be NHL players this season. Joel Kwiatkowski and Brian Fahey.
You may have heard of Joel but maybe not Brian. However, both are EXTREMELY capable defensemen, and it may actually be Brian that is more sought after right now.
Of Fahey a source told me today, "There simply are not many well-rounded, puck-moving defensemen around." And a team executive out West believes that he is almost certainly headed to a Western team in desperate need of help on the blue line."
Granted, absolutely nothing else in that post actually happened, but I knew I remembered reading about this guy
