All eyes are Colorado tonight to see the league’s hottest line back in action against the Ottawa Senators. Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen will welcome former Avalanche star Matt Duchene back to town for the first time since his trade last season, while trying to continue their winning ways. As always, we’ll keep track of all the minor moves teams make to get ready for tonight’s games and tomorrow’s full schedule:
- The Los Angeles Kings have sent Sheldon Rempal back to the minor leagues, as Dustin Brown prepares for his return to the lineup. Rempal played in three games for the Kings but was held scoreless, something he hasn’t experienced in the minor league so far. Rempal has recorded at least a point in each of his first four AHL games with the Ontario Reign, and has a total of eight on the season. The 23-year old undrafted forward was signed out of Clarkson University after a breakout season.
- With John Quenneville sent to the AHL, the New Jersey Devils have recalled Joey Anderson according to Tom Gulitti of NHL.com. Anderson would be making his NHL debut if he gets into a game, but Gulitti believes he’s only up as an insurance policy for Marcus Johansson who missed practice today with an illness. Anderson, a promising forward prospect for the Devils, has five points through his first eight professional games and may end up outplaying his third-round draft status with ease.
