Here is where we will keep track of all the day’s minor transactions:
- The Chicago Wolves of the AHL have brought back the second-leading goal scorer in team history, as Brett Sterling returns from Europe to re-join his old club. The 32-year old former fifth-round pick of the Atlanta Thrashers once scored 55 goals in a single season for the Wolves, and has 225 in his AHL career.
- 39-year old Eric Boulton has re-signed with the New York Islanders on a one-year, two-way deal. The long-time enforcer has played 654 games at the NHL level and has racked up 142 fighting majors during that time. He’ll provide a measure of protection and leadership for the young players for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL.
- After struggling to find consistent NHL playing time last season, Andre Benoit has decided to take his talents elsewhere. The veteran of 181 NHL games has signed with the Malmo Redhawks of the Swedish Elite League. Benoit played his best season in 2013-14, when he recorded 28 points in 79 games for the Colorado Avalanche.
