It’s the last day of August and training camps are right around the corner. European, minor league and junior teams continue to finesse their rosters with an eye on opening day, meaning there are still lots of minor transactions happening daily. As always, we’ll keep track of the notable ones right here.
- You know James van Riemsdyk and Trevor van Riemsdyk, but today another brother signed a new contract. Brendan van Riemsdyk, 25, signed a deal with the Reading Royals of the ECHL. He was supposed to play for Reading in 2020-21 as well after leaving Northeastern University, but the Royals opted out of the season, leaving him playing for the Knoxville Ice Bears of the SPHL.
- Matthew Wedman, a seventh-round pick by the Florida Panthers in 2019, has signed a new contract with the Atlanta Gladiators for 2021-22. The Panthers never did sign him to an entry-level contract, meaning he is an unrestricted free agent after never quite taking the next step in the WHL. Last season for the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, he posted eight points in 34 games.
