The 26-year-old fourth-year pro has now appeared in 33 career AHL games between Norfolk, Binghamton, Albany and Milwaukee and has six goals and five assists with 18 penalty minutes in those games.
Syroczynski will return to the Fort Wayne Komets (IHL) where he has four goals and six points in four games this season.
