Six more games are on the schedule for this evening in the NHL, including Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers heading into Columbus to try and stop their recent skid. The Oilers haven’t won a game in regulation in almost two weeks, going 2-3 in their last five games. While that has been good enough to stay in first place in the Pacific Division, five teams are now within three points of them in the standings. As they and the rest of the league prepares, we’ll be here keeping track of all the minor moves.
- With Brendan Perlini expected to join the lineup, the Detroit Red Wings have sent Givani Smith to the minor leagues. The 21-year old forward played in three games with Detroit, getting his feet wet at the NHL level. He’ll return to Grand Rapids to await his next opportunity.
- After recalling him yesterday as an insurance policy, the Nashville Predators have returned Colin Blackwell to the minor leagues. The minor league veteran has yet to play an NHL game this season.
