Two series came to an end last night as the Vegas Golden Knights and Toronto Maple Leafs will be heading home. With two more teams eliminated there will be a few minor moves over the next few days to fix rosters and prepare for the second round. As always, we’ll be right here to keep track of them.
- The Maple Leafs have returned Calle Rosen to the minor leagues where he will join the Toronto Marlies for their own playoff run. Rosen has been the Marlies best defenseman at times this season and won a Calder Cup with the team last year. He did not suit up for a game in the NHL playoffs, but may have a role on the team next season as Jake Gardiner and Ron Hainsey both head to unrestricted free agency.
- The Nashville Predators have sent Niclas Westerholm to the Milwaukee Admirals, after he served as the team’s third goaltender in the playoffs. The Admirals already have starting options, but after allowing 13 goals in the first two games of their series against the Iowa Wild perhaps they’ll consider Westerholm for game 3 on Thursday evening.
