Playing careerEdit

Swanson was drafted 115th overall in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by the San Jose Sharks from the USHL's Omaha Lancers. He then spent four seasons at Colorado College. While at college, his rights were traded to the New York Rangers and briefly played for their AHL affiliate the Hartford Wolf Pack during the 1998–99 season. In 1999, he signed with the Edmonton Oilers and after spending an entire season with the Hamilton Bulldogs, Swanson made his NHL debut during the 2000–01 NHL season. He spent another two seasons with the Oilers, bouncing around between them and the Bulldogs. In 2003, he signed with the Atlanta Thrashers, but just played two games for them as he spent most of the season in the AHL with the Chicago Wolves.

With Swanson a free agent and the 2004–05 NHL season locked out, Swanson signed with German side Kassel Huskies of the DEL. In 2005, Swanson choose to remain in Germany signing with the Nürnberg Ice Tigers. On July 30, 2009, after spending four years with the Ice Tigers, Brian signed a one-year contract with fellow DEL team, Iserlohn Roosters.[1]
