Former Chicago Blackhawks center Dennis Rasmussen cleared waivers earlier today and will have his contract terminated by the team later this afternoon.

Now that Rasmussen has officially cleared, it’s expected that he’ll join the Vaxjo Lakers of the SHL in Sweden.

The 27-year-old has played only 27 games for the Ducks this season, scoring a goal and four points. The 6’3”, 190 lb center played parts of four seasons in the Blackhawks organization, collecting eight goals and 17 points over two campaigns in the NHL.
