Here is where we’ll keep track of today’s minor transactions:
- Calgary UFA Drew Shore has signed a one year deal with HC Kloten, the Swiss NLA team announced (link in German). Shore has spent parts of each of the last four seasons in the NHL between the Flames and Panthers, picking up nine goals and 15 assists in 80 games. Last year, the 25 year old suited up in just two NHL contests but tallied 10 goals and 18 helpers in 59 AHL games with Calgary’s affiliate in Stockton.
- Long-time NHL enforcer Cam Janssen announced his retirement, his now-former British League team in Nottingham announced. He will be returning stateside to work with a radio station in St. Louis, covering the Blues. Janssen played in 336 NHL games between New Jersey and St. Louis, collecting six goals, eight assists, and 774 penalty minutes. Last year, he picked up ten points and 120 PIMS in 62 EIHL contests.
- The Allen Americans announced the signing of San Jose UFA forward Christopher Crane. Crane spent most of last year with Allen, picking up 21 goals and 17 assists in 41 games but did so while under an NHL contract to the Sharks. He didn’t receive a qualifying offer by the deadline back in late June.
