Five games grace the NHL schedule this evening, including a match between the best and worst of the Western Conference. The St. Louis Blues will welcome in the Anaheim Ducks for a game between two clubs moving in opposite directions. Even though the Ducks are 26 points behind the Blues in the standings, nothing is guaranteed in the NHL. As the entire league prepares for tonight, we’ll keep track of all the moves:
- The New York Islanders have recalled Sebastian Aho from the minor leagues. The young defenseman hasn’t yet played an NHL contest this year, but does have 22 games of experience from the 2017-18 season. Also up from the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers is forward Otto Koivula, who has played in six games with Isles, but has been held scoreless.
- Rasmus Sandin is back with the Toronto Maple Leafs, recalled after the team’s embarrassing loss last night. Sandin is four games away from burning the first year of his entry-level contract, but the Maple Leafs haven’t been able to keep the puck out of their net recently with Jake Muzzin out with a broken foot.
- The San Jose Sharks have sent Lukas Radil to the minor leagues, while bringing up Joachim Blichfeld. The seventh-round pick has been excellent in the minor leagues this season, really launching himself onto the map of NHL prospects for the Sharks.
