There are plenty of transactions happening between NHL and AHL clubs as training camp cuts continue, but those minor league squads are also making other moves to fill out their training camp rosters. As always, we’ll keep track of those moves right here:
- The Hershey Bears released their training camp roster today, and it has some interesting names included on tryouts. Jake Massie, who was forced to sign an ECHL contract with the South Carolina Stingrays, will get a chance to show the AHL affiliate what he can do as well. The 24-year-old defenseman signed an entry-level contract with the Florida Panthers in 2019 when his college draft rights expired, but was not given a qualifying offer this summer.
- The Ontario Reign will have undrafted WHL defenseman Bobby Russell in camp on a tryout, after he signed an ECHL deal with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. Russell had 12 points in 21 games for the Spokane Chiefs last season and will get a chance to show what he can do in the minor leagues this fall.
- Pascal Laberge, a second-round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in 2016 will be at Providence Bruins camp according to Mark Divver after signing with the Maine Mariners earlier this summer. Laberge, 23, haas played the last three seasons with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms but failed to receive a qualifying offer this offseason.
- Brandon Saigeon, a fifth-round pick of the Colorado Avalanche in 2018, will be in camp with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The 23-year-old spent the 2019-20 season with the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies and never did sign an entry-level deal with the Avalanche.
