A busy Thursday holds nine games on the schedule around the NHL, including the undefeated Carolina Hurricanes and St. Louis Blues trying to stay perfect in their respective matches. Can the Arizona Coyotes get their first win of the season against the defending champs? As always, while teams finalize their gameday rosters we’ll be right here to keep track of all the minor moves.
- Cory Schneider has been added to the Bridgeport Islanders roster after he recently cleared waivers, following the activation of Semyon Varlamov yesterday. The 35-year-old veteran will likely serve as organizational depth, with Jakub Skarek and Kenneth Appleby getting the majority of starts in the minor leagues.
- The New Jersey Devils have sent Nico Daws back to the AHL, suggesting that one of their other goaltenders is ready to return to action. Daws posted an .875 save percentage in his two NHL appearances, securing a win for the Devils in the process.
- The Chicago Blackhawks have sent Ian Mitchell back to the Rockford IceHogs, recalling Isaak Phillips in his place. Phillips, 20, would be making his NHL debut should he get into a game with the Blackhawks this season. A fifth-round pick, he has quickly developed into one of the most reliable defenders for Rockford and has two points in his first four games this year.
- On top of sending Mason McTavish down on a conditioning stint, the Anaheim Ducks also assigned Sam Carrick to the minors. The 29-year-old logged nearly 10 minutes of ice time in his season debut on Tuesday. Carrick had six points in 13 games with Anaheim last season so he should get another shot at NHL action at some point later this season.
