There has been plenty of roster movement between NHL teams and the taxi squad on a daily basis this season and with players needing to be on an AHL roster or NHL taxi squad once the trade deadline passes, there may even be more than usual today. Although some major names may be highlighted in separate articles, this is where you’ll find the majority of that shuffle news each day:
- The Maple Leafs announced that they have recalled Nick Robertson and Timothy Liljegren from Toronto of the AHL to the taxi squad. Liljegren has been up and down this season but hasn’t seen any NHL action while getting into 11 minor league contests. Robertson was injured in his regular season debut with the Leafs and has ten points in 14 games with the Marlies after being cleared to return.
- The Senators announced the recall of Alex Formenton from the taxi squad, an expected move after sending him down yesterday. Formenton was initially brought up late last month and has three goals in eight games this season. Ottawa has also activated Colin White from injured reserve.
- The Blue Jackets have made several roster moves. Per a team release, Ryan MacInnis, Kole Sherwood, and Andrew Peeke were recalled from the taxi squad. Coming up from AHL Cleveland to the taxi squad are Nathan Gerbe, Adam Clendening, and Josh Dunne.
- The Hurricanes have recalled Joakim Ryan to the taxi squad from AHL Chicago, according to the AHL’s transactions log. The blueliner has played in just four minor league contests this season and hasn’t suited up yet with Carolina.
- The Lightning announced that Alex Barre-Boulet and Mitchell Stephens have been recalled from their respective conditioning stints with AHL Syracuse. Defenseman Andreas Borgman has been reassigned to the Crunch in a corresponding move.
- The Los Angeles Kings have activated Olli Maata from the injured reserve. To create space on the blue line, they have reassigned fellow defenseman Austin Strand to the taxi squad.
- Tomas Jurco is on his way back to the NHL, recalled directly from the AHL to the active roster of the Vegas Golden Knights. Jurco has only played in one game up with Vegas so far this year, but has seven points in 17 games with the Henderson Silver Knights.
