In 11 games for the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack in 2013, Mashinter had one goal and six assists.

Beach, the former 2008 first-round pick of the Hawks, never appeared in a regular season game with Chicago. He's collected 41 goals and 35 assists in 169 games spanning across six seasons with the Rockford IceHogs.

Mashinter will report directly to the IceHogs.
