BOISE — The Steelheads traded defenseman Tyler Elbrecht to the Toledo Walleye in exchange for the ECHL rights to defenseman Russ Sinkewich. In a separate transaction, the Texas Stars of the AHL reassigned Sinkewich from Toledo to Idaho.

The 28-year-old defenseman has split this season between Toledo and Texas, who owns his AHL rights. In 33 games at the ECHL level, Sinkewich has 17 points (one goal, 16 assists) and 39 penalty minutes.

The Steelheads are home Wednesday against Alaska.
