It’s another busy Saturday across the NHL with 24 teams in action today so it should be an active day on the transactions front as well. We’ll keep track of today’s roster movement here.
- The Islanders have recalled winger Richard Panik plus defensemen Grant Hutton and Paul LaDue, reports Newsday’s Andrew Gross (Twitter link). Forward Andy Andreoff has also been recalled. Those promotions were needed with the recent injury to Ryan Pulock plus the placements of Anders Lee and Ross Johnston in COVID protocol. New York will finally play their first home game of the season following a whopping 13-game road trip to start while the finishing touches on UBS Arena were put in place.
- In response to T.J. Oshie and Nic Dowd being activated from injured reserve today, the Washington Capitals assigned forward Brett Leason to the Hershey Bears. In his first ten NHL games, all this season, Leason has two goals and one assist after Washington picked him up in the second round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
- The Sharks have recalled center Noah Gregor and winger Jeffrey Viel, per the AHL’s transactions log. Gregor played in 30 NHL games with San Jose last season and had five goals but has yet to play with the Sharks this season. Viel, meanwhile, was recently activated off SOIR and played his first game with the Barracuda last night. He played in 11 NHL contests in 2020-21 where he had 23 penalty minutes. Lane Pederson was placed on IR in a corresponding move.
- A day after sending him back to Henderson, the Golden Knights have recalled defenseman Daniil Miromanov, the team announced (Twitter link). The 24-year-old has an assist in three games with Vegas this season but has been more productive with the Silver Knights, recording seven points in 11 contests.
This post will be updated throughout the day.
