The season has gotten off to a strong start, with outstanding individual performances and parity among all four divisions. As teams try to keep their momentum going, we’ll be here to keep track of all the minor moves.
- The Florida Panthers have recalled Juho Lammikko from the AHL, bringing up the 22-year old forward after just one game in the minor leagues this season. Lammikko, a third-round pick of the Panthers from 2014, is still looking to make his NHL debut and could provide some more size for the team’s bottom six. Derek MacKenzie is expected to miss the Panthers’ next game.
- Pontus Aberg has been assigned to the San Diego Gulls of the AHL after clearing waivers, and will continue to be a part of the Anaheim Ducks organization. Aberg has had several chances in the NHL over the last few years, but can’t seem to catch on. The talented forward will try to prove his worth at the minor league level for the time being.
- The Chicago Blackhawks promoted Alexandre Fortin late this evening, with the team heading on the road to face the Minnesota Wild on Thursday. The 21-year-old forward would be making his NHL debut if he were to be in the Hawks’ lineup for their next game. Fortin, an undrafted rookie out of the QMJHL now in his second pro season, is a versatile forward who could slot in throughout Chicago’s forward corps.
