2010-11 was Ivan Vishnevskiy's first season in the Chicago Blackhawks organization after being acquired from the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for Andrew Ladd. He was with the IceHogs all year long, but he was limited to 46 games, mostly due to multiple injuries.

When he was healthy, there were some nights where Vishnevskiy looked like he should be in the NHL. On the flip side, there were also nights where he looked like he was just right for the AHL. The inconsistency wasn't a great thing, but overall, he was serviceable for the Hogs. He was used on the power play a lot and was good at getting his shots from the point through to the net. Vishnevskiy is also a pretty good skater. He's not the fastest guy, but he's solid on his skates.

Vishnevskiy will not be back on the blueline for the Hogs next year. He signed a contract with Mytishchi Moscow of the KHL on May 17th.
