For fans north of the border today is a day of thanks and may not be used to keep track of all the NHL movement. They’ll be able to catch up right here. As always, we’ll follow all the minor moves around the league.
- As expected the Florida Panthers have recalled goaltender Michael Hutchinson under emergency conditions, after Roberto Luongo was helped from the ice yesterday. Hutchinson was acquired by the Panthers for exactly this reason, and is earning $1.3MM as the team’s third string goalie. He’ll join James Reimer for now in the Florida crease, and try to show that he still has NHL-level talent.
- Scott Harrington has been activated from injured reserve by the Columbus Blue Jackets, taking the roster spot of Brandon Dubinsky who was injured recently. Harrington had been dealing with an upper-body injury from the preseason, but will try to build on the 32-game performance last season. Harrington, once a top prospect of the Pittsburgh Penguins, has just 79 games under his belt so far in his career.
