The last day of 2017 is upon us and 16 teams are expected to play today after a six-game schedule on Saturday. Many teams may want to shake up their roster, so keep an eye out for moves today:
- The Ottawa Senators announced they have reassigned forward Nick Paul to the Belleville Senators of the AHL. Paul has been with Ottawa since he was recalled on Dec. 13, but has been shuttled back and forth between the two squads for much of the season. The 22-year-old has played 11 games for Ottawa and has one goal, which he picked up Friday against Columbus. He has one goal and six assists in 17 games for Belleville.
- One day after recalling center Frederick Gaudreau, the Nashville Predators have returned him to the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL, according to Cap Friendly. Gaudreau played in the team’s 3-0 victory over Minnesota, but only saw 6:21 minutes of ice time in the game. He has played 18 games with Nashville with three assists on the year.
