As August continues and we get further into contract negotiations, teams continue to fill our their organizational depth charts. Here are some minor moves from around the league. We’ll keep updating as more come in:
- After spending the last several seasons in the ECHL, Dominic Alberga has decided to take his talents overseas. The 27-year old will play for HC Bolzano in the Italian league this season after scoring 46 points in 41 games with the Norfolk Admirals last year. Alberga actually got his first extended chance in the AHL, suiting up 16 times for the Tucson Roadrunners as well.
- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Jack Johnson’s younger brother Kenny Johnson has committed to Penn State University for the upcoming season after spending the last few years in the BCHL. Also a defenseman, the younger Johnson went undrafted but recorded 20 points in 51 games last season split between the Penticton Vees and Victoria Grizzlies.
- Former Cornell standout Trevor Yates has signed on with the Reading Royals of the ECHL, giving them another weapon up front for the 2019-20 season. Yates bounced around the minor leagues last year and split time between the Grand Rapids Griffins, Toledo Walleye, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and Wheeling Nailers.
