Here is where we will keep track of the day’s minor transactions:
- The Carolina Hurricanes will sign notorious forward Raffi Torres to a professional tryout, according to Aaron Ward. Torres is coming off a season that saw him suspended for more games than he played at any level, after he was given a 41-game ban for his hit on Jakob Silfverberg in the preseason. He did get into six games for the San Jose Barracuda, but was held scoreless. Torres was recently quoted as saying “The show or no”, referring to a possible retirement if he doesn’t make the NHL this year.
- The Manitoba Moose have signed two players to one-year deals. Patrice Cormier and Kevin Czuczman will be suiting up for the Winnipeg Jets affiliate next season. Cormier played for the Moose last season and got into two games with the big club, not scoring a point. Czuczman is a defenseman who made his NHL debut in 2013-14 with the Islanders, but hasn’t made it back since. He scored 15 points in 74 games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers last season.
- The New York Rangers’ AHL affiliate Hartford Wolfpack have signed Boston University defenseman Ahti Oksanen. Oksanen finished his BU career with 115 points in 150 games, including 35+ points in each of his junior and senior seasons. His 36 points last year ranked him second on BU, ahead of first-round pick Charles McAvoy and second-rounder Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson.
- The Toronto Marlies have signed Jon Jutzi to an AHL contract, after inviting him to their rookie development camp in July. Jutzi, 25, played four seasons at Minnesota State University alongside Predators draft pick Zach Stepan, cousin of Derek Stepan. Jutzi got into six games with the Manitoba Moose this spring after graduating, where he was held pointless.
