Just five games are on tap for this evening, but that will include the final team without a regulation win. After last night’s Arizona Coyotes victory, the Dallas Stars are the only team in the league that hasn’t managed to finish a game in the first 60 minutes, though they have secured two points on four occasions. The Stars will take on the Vancouver Canucks this evening. As they and others prepare for action, we’ll keep track of all the minor league shuffling:
- After their latest win, the Florida Panthers have made a swap, sending Chase Priskie to the AHL and recalling Lucas Carlsson. The 24-year-old Carlsson has six points in eight games for the Charlotte Checkers this season, showing once again that he can be a top performer at the minor league level. Since arriving from the Chicago Blackhawks, he has yet to get into a game with the Panthers.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled forwards Joey Anderson and Kirill Semyonov from the Toronto Marlies to give the team some extra bodies. The team has some additional roster flexibility after it was announced today that netminder Petr Mrazek will be placed on injured reserve with a groin injury. Anderson is off to a slow-ish start with the Marlies with just four points in nine games, but Semyonov is impressing with a goal and eight assists in his first season of North American hockey.
- According to a team tweet, the Detroit Red Wings assigned center Joe Veleno to the Grand Rapids Griffins in order to make room for defenseman Gustav Lindstrom, who the team activated from injured reserve. Veleno had two points in four games during his call-up, looking impressive in a top-six role.
- After the team activated Ryan Reaves for last night’s game, the New York Rangers have officially sent Greg McKegg back to the AHL. The 29-year-old McKegg has played in eight games this season but has been held scoreless. He cleared waivers before the season began, but was still eligible to be sent down without having to clear again.
- The Carolina Hurricanes recalled netminder Alex Lyon from the Chicago Wolves today, according to head coach Rod Brind’Amour. Goalie Antti Raanta left Saturday’s game against the Florida Panthers after colliding with forward Ryan Lomberg.
- Defenseman Nick Seeler was loaned to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms by the Philadelphia Flyers today, per the team. The move leaves Philadelphia with only six defensemen on the active roster, meaning that Ryan Ellis is likely to return to the lineup Wednesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
- The Washington Capitals recalled forward Axel Jonsson-Fjallby from the Hershey Bears Sunday. Jonsson-Fjallby found himself in the news prior to the season’s start after being claimed by the Buffalo Sabres on waivers but was reclaimed by Washington less than a week after the fact. Jonsson-Fjallby could make his NHL debut after posting seven points in nine games with Hershey to start the year.
- The Minnesota Wild re-assigned Adam Beckman and Connor Dewar to the Iowa Wild. The team needed to free up roster space for Mats Zuccarello and Rem Pitlick, who the team activated from the COVID-19 Protocol list today.
- Daniil Miromanov was recalled from the Henderson Silver Knights today, per the Vegas Golden Knights media site. A versatile youngster who can play both forward and defense, he was added to the roster after Alex Pietrangelo who was roughed up in Vegas’ Saturday night game against the Montreal Canadiens.
- In addition to waiving Kyle Capobianco today, the Arizona Coyotes also re-assigned forward Ben McCartney and defenseman Victor Soderstrom to the Tucson Roadrunners, per PHNX Sports’ Craig Morgan. McCartney went without a point during his two-game call-up, while Soderstrom has yet to find the scoresheet in nine games this season.
- The Vancouver Canucks assigned forward Nic Petan to Abbotsford today, activating Justin Dowling in a corresponding move. Petan has hopped up and down between the NHL and AHL this season but has yet to get into a game with the Canucks.
