Von Arx bounces back into the NHL

Von Arx is back on the ice for the Chicago Blackhawks

(Keystone Archive)

The Swiss ice hockey player, Reto von Arx, has found his way back into the National Hockey League (NHL) - with the same club which lost faith in him earlier this season.

Von Arx, 24, is back with the Chicago Blackhawks after a spell in a lower league.

He started the season with the Blackhawks, but after 10 matches was transferred to the Norfolk Admirals in the American Hockey League.

After 36 matches in the lower league, during which time he scored 12 goals (19 assists), the Blackhawks have regained confidence in his abilities and again retained his services.

Von Arx is the third Swiss player in the NHL, joining David Aebischer and Thomas Ziegler.
