Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bill Sweatt
Bill Sweatt was born on September 21, 1988 in Elburn, Illinois. A product of the U.S. National Team Development Program, he was selected in the second round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks. Sweatt played his collegiate hockey at Colorado College, where his older brother was already playing.

In 2010 Sweatt was traded by the Blackhawks to the Toronto Maple Leafs, but when he failed to reach a contract agreement, he became an unrestricted free agent and signed with the Vancouver Canucks. Sweatt made his professional debut for their AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, of the American Hockey League the following year. In 80 games during his first pro campaign he would record 19 goals and 27 assists for 46 points.

During the 2011-12 season Sweatt would get his first taste of NHL action. He was recalled by the Canucks and joined the club for two regular season games.
