Here are the recent minor transactions around the hockey world:
- Carolina UFA forward Dane Fox has signed a one year with the Missouri Mavericks, the ECHL team announced. Fox was originally signed as an undrafted free agent with Vancouver in late 2013 and was dealt to the Hurricanes shortly after the most recent trade deadline in exchange for future considerations. Fox spent most of last year with ECHL Kalamazoo, picking up 26 goals and 24 assists in 53 games but was not given a qualifying offer by Carolina by the deadline back in June.
- Enforcer Patrick Bordeleau has signed with the EIHL’s Cardiff Devils, according to a team release. Bordeleau was an unrestricted free agent of the Avalanche. The 30 year old winger spent last season with Colorado’s AHL affiliate in San Antonio, collecting five assists and 72 PIMS in 55 games. He has 129 games of NHL experience, all with the Avs. The decision to place a limit on fighting majors in the AHL beginning in 2016-17 likely made it much more difficult for him to land another deal in that league.
- Flyers UFA forward Brandon Alderson has signed a one year deal with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, the ECHL squad announced. Alderson split last season between Philadelphia’s AHL and ECHL affiliates, picking up 28 points in 59 games between the two minor league levels. Alderson was not tendered a qualifying offer by June’s deadline.
