The NHL saw a coaching shakeup this morning when Joel Quenneville was removed from his position with the Chicago Blackhawks, but will quickly move on to other things with nine games on the schedule. As teams prepare for their games, we’ll be right here keeping track of all the minor moves.
- Dakota Mermis has been recalled by the Arizona Coyotes, giving the team a full 23-man roster once again. Mermis, 24, played in nine games for the Coyotes last season and is off to a great start with five points in his first nine games for the Tucson Roadrunners. The Coyotes start a road trip on Thursday when they travel to Philadelphia.
- The Boston Bruins have returned both Anton Blidh and Jeremy Lauzon to the AHL, which could mean good news for some of their injured players. The Bruins are down to just 20 players on the active roster and don’t play until Thursday night, meaning there could be another recall if someone isn’t activated in the next day or so.
- Chase De Leo has been recalled by the Anaheim Ducks, prior to the team’s game tonight in Los Angeles. De Leo has five points in his first eight games in the minor leagues, and will try to fight for a spot in the NHL for the first time this year. The 23-year old forward has just two NHL games under his belt, both with the Winnipeg Jets.
- Christoffer Ehn has been recalled by the Detroit Red Wings, following the move to injured reserve for Jonathan Ericsson. Ehn played nine games with the Red Wings earlier this season, and has shown good ability in the minor leagues. A fourth-round pick from 2014, he’s been performing well this season, his first in North America.
- The Buffalo Sabres have assigned Sean Malone to the Rochester Americans, meaning he must be ready to start playing again. Malone suffered an injury early in training camp and had already been rehabbing in Rochester, but will now be able to suit up for game action.
