With the AHL season underway, activity has started to pick up on the signing front as teams look to bolster their rosters. Here’s a rundown of the latest moves:
- The Avalanche have signed three players to minor league deals per a team release from the AHL Eagles. Wingers Jerry D’Amigo and Riley Woods plus defenseman Miles Gendron have all inked tryout agreements with the team. D’Amigo is the headliner of the group having played in 31 career NHL games between Toronto and Columbus. Woods spent last season in Toronto’s system while Gendron, a former Ottawa prospect, spent last season with the Sens on a minor league deal.
- The Devils are taking a closer look at one of their prospects as Binghamton announced (Twitter link) that they’ve signed winger Graeme Clarke to a minor-league deal. The 19-year-old was a third-round pick of New Jersey back in 2019 and with the OHL not having started yet, he hasn’t played aside from a six-game stint in Slovakia. Clarke, who must sign an NHL deal by June 1st, will have to return to OHL Ottawa if and when that league starts its 2020-21 season.
- The Lightning released winger Maxim Cajkovic from his AHL deal, per the AHL’s Transactions log. The 20-year-old was a third-round pick back in 2019 and needs to sign by June 1st or Tampa Bay will lose his rights. Cajkovic started the season with Bratislava of the ICEHL and will now report to Val d’Or of the QMJHL for his final junior season.
