Even though the regular season is right around the corner and there are tons of training camp cuts coming down the pipe, it doesn’t necessarily mean teams are finished adding. There have been a few more names brought into training camp today and as always, we’ll keep track of all the notable minor moves right here:
- According to CapFriendly, the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed goaltender Evan Cormier to a professional tryout, giving them an extra netminder following a few injuries. Joseph Woll and Ian Scott, two of the team’s most experienced prospects, are both out for the time being and unable to help in the preseason schedule. Cormier, who wasn’t issued a qualifying offer by the New Jersey Devils at the end of the season, can fill that role after playing 11 games with the Binghamton Devils last season. An NHL contract seems unlikely, unless the other injuries turn out to be long-term.
- CapFriendly also reports that the Tampa Bay Lightning have signed Brandon Crawley, another player with minor league experience that can help fill out a roster during the preseason. The 24-year-old defenseman split last season between the Hartford Wolf Pack (the New York-to-Tampa pipeline continues) and Cleveland Monsters, registering one point in 20 games.
