Kruger, 25, was drafted by Chicago in the fifth round (149th overall) in the 2009 Draft. He had one assist in 33 games with the Hawks before he was placed on IR on Dec. 28.
He will wear number 22 when he returns to the lineup this season after giving 16 back to Andrew Ladd, who was acquired from Winnipeg before the trade deadline.
