LaCrosse Tribune | Wednesday, November 16, 2011

The Coulee Region Chill continued to re-shape their defensive corps on Wednesday with the signing of Eric Swahn from Great Falls (Mont.) of the America West Hockey League.

Swahn, 6-foot-3, 198 pounds, is a native of Stockholm, Sweden. He played in three games for Great Falls this season, with one assist.

The Chill on Tuesday traded defenseman Tate Rusk to New Mexico (NAHL) for a 2012 tender contract and earlier this month traded Adam Barlow and Ben Gislason, bringing in Eric Loasby and Brady Riesgraf.

Swahn, 18, will join the Chill on Monday.
