from the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs to the CHL’s Bloomington Blaze.
Gilbert, 21, appeared in one game for Rockford on Jan. 9 against Grand Rapids, but was held without a point. The second year pro has skated in 29 contests for the Blaze this season, notching 13 goals and 10 assists.

A seventh round draft choice by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2009 NHL draft, Gilbert has notched three goals and six assists in 34 career games with the IceHogs.
