There has been plenty of roster movement between NHL teams and the taxi squad on a daily basis this season. 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 Arizona Coyotes have recalled Kyle Capobianco from the AHL and placed him on the taxi squad. The 23-year-old defenseman has bounced up and down the last several seasons but still has just 14 NHL games under his belt. In 18 matches with the Tucson Roadrunners this year, Capobianco has 12 points. Ivan Prosvetov has also been assigned to the taxi squad.
- The San Jose Sharks have recalled Jacob Middleton, Nicolas Meloche, and Jayden Halbgewachs from the AHL, sending Greg Pateryn back to the San Jose Barracuda in the process. The Sharks sent some of their depth players like Nick DeSimone, Antti Suomela, Fredrik Claesson, and Stefan Noesen away during the trade deadline, leaving room for some minor leaguers to get a bigger opportunity down the stretch.
- The Chicago Blackhawks have re-assigned Nicolas Beaudin, Ian Mitchell, and Matt Tomkins to the taxi squad, as both Adam Boqvist and Calvin de Haan are both missing practice due to injury. Beaudin, 21, has 10 points in nine games with the Rockford IceHogs and will likely soon be a staple on the Chicago blue line.
- Philip Tomasino, one of the Nashville Predators’ top prospects, was recalled to the team’s taxi squad today from the minor leagues. The 19-year-old forward has 20 points in 18 games for the Chicago Wolves in his first year of professional hockey. Tommy Novak has been returned to the AHL in his place.
