Brandon Bollig would be a senior this year had he remained at St. Lawrence University.
He left to join the Chicago Blackhawks organization after his sophomore season with the Saints in 2010. Ever since, he has been a regular for the AHL's Rockford IceHogs.
He's known as much for his physical play and fights as he is for his skill on the ice, which is perhaps why the master penalty-killer is headed to the top club.
The Blackhawks sent enforcer John Scott to the New York Rangers, leaving a void in the lineup that will be filled in part by Bollig.
Chicago's next game is Wednesday night.
