Saad returned to Saginaw from Hawks

Saginaw Spirit forward Brandon Saad has been returned to the Spirit from the Chicago Blackhawks, the Spirit announced Wednesday evening.

Saad played the entire preseason and earned a spot on the opening day roster with the Blackhawks after signing an entry level contract with the club the day before the start of the NHL season. Saad, taken in the second round (43rd overall) by the Blackhawks in June, played in Chicago’s first two regular season games registering three shots on goal.

“The Saginaw Spirit are very proud of Brandon and the progress he made during training camp and the preseason with the Chicago Blackhawks," said Spirit president Craig Goslin. "It is the goal of the Saginaw Spirit to develop its talent to play at the NHL level. We are extremely excited to have Brandon back with the Saginaw Spirit this season."

Last season with the Spirit, Saad scored 27 goals and recorded 28 assists in the regular season.
