It was another exciting night in the NHL on Sunday, with five games on the schedule. Perhaps most interesting was the Edmonton Oilers-Winnipeg Jets tilt, in which both Mike Smith and Connor Hellebuyck recorded shutouts. That’s right, both goaltenders shut the door on every shot in regulation and overtime, leading Smith to receive a shutout loss after Kyle Connor and Patrik Laine both scored in the shootout. Tonight should have more of the same excitement with four games on tap, including a Western Conference battle between the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues. As teams prepare for the action, we’ll be right here keeping track of all the minor moves.
- The Ottawa Senators have recalled J.C. Beaudin for their game tonight against the Dallas Stars. Beaudin was acquired in February from the Colorado Avalanche and has yet to make his NHL debut.
- The New Jersey Devils have recalled Matt Tennyson from the minor leagues once again, after only being assigned yesterday. Tennyson has played in three games for the Devils this season, actually recording two points. Though that total wouldn’t be notable for many players, Tennyson actually hadn’t registered an NHL point since March of 2017.
- The San Jose Sharks have recalled Jonny Brodzinski and Trevor Carrick from the minor leagues, continuing their pattern of bouncing players back and forth between game days. Carrick has already been involved in seven transactions since the start of the month, while playing three times for the Sharks.
