Klingberg on his way to AHL Chicago

Now that his Swedish Elite League season is over, Thrashers prospect Carl Klingberg will join AHL Chicago for the remainder of the season. The second-round pick of the Thrashers in 2009 split time this season between Frolunda and Timra. The forward felt he was not getting enough playing time with Frolunda so he asked for, and was granted, a loan to Timra.

He should joining the Wolves in the next week.

* The Wolves  loaned Thrashers forward prospect Andrew Kozek to AHL Hersey Monday. In return, the Capitals loaned defenseman Josh Godfrey to Chicago.

* Not much to report from Thrashers practice Monday. All healthy players were on the ice.

A slight tweak in the line combinations again with Anthony Stewart rejoining Evander Kane and Nik Antropov on the second line.

How and why does one “loan” someone?

Blow this “team” up, a loan is said to occur when a team controls a player’s rights, but permits him to play elsewhere. Chicago has “loaned” Cristobal Huet to a European league this season, for example. Huet is still property of the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago has the ability to trade the player, since they own his contract. They have the right to “loan” him out, again, next season, if they wish. They have the right to buy him out, also.

Another loan took place today, and I didn’t see anything on it anywhere until I went looking for it.

The Thrashers have loaned Akim Aliu’s services to the Peoria Rivermen,

This will be something to keep an eye on. The Rivermen play the Wolves twice this week, and I can’t imagine the Rivermen wouldn’t cut him loose against his former team.
