As usual, Saturday is set to be a busy one with 24 teams in action which means there should be a fair bit of roster juggling throughout the day. We’ll keep tabs on those moves here.
- The Coyotes have loaned goaltender Marek Langhamer to HC Kometa Brno of the Czech Extraliga, reports Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports (Twitter link). This alleviates a logjam between the pipes at the AHL level with Adin Hill and Hunter Miska already with their AHL affiliate in Tucson plus veteran Michael Leighton who is on loan to Vegas’ farm team in Chicago. Arizona will retain Langhamer’s rights while he is on loan.
- Pittsburgh has flipped depth defensemen, announcing that they have assigned Frank Corrado to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL while recalling blueliner Kevin Czuczman. Corrado had only been recalled on Thursday and didn’t see any action since then. As for Czuczman, he leads the Baby Penguins in points by a defender with 14 through 22 games. He last saw NHL action back in 2013-14 with the Islanders, who had signed and played him immediately after his collegiate season ended.
- Sonny Milano’s back-and-forth season continues. The Blue Jackets announced that they have recalled the winger from Cleveland of the AHL. He has spent the bulk of the season with Columbus, tallying ten points in 24 games while adding a pair of assists in two minor league contests.
