Six games are on the schedule for this evening, including the return of the Ottawa Senators after being shut down the last week with a COVID outbreak. The team has traveled to Colorado to take on the Avalanche but will be basically in a bubble according to Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia. Ottawa was the first team to have games postponed after seeing ten players enter the COVID protocol. As they and others prepare for tonight’s action, we’ll keep track of all the minor shuffling right here.
- The Vancouver Canucks have assigned Travis Hamonic to the AHL once again, as they prepare to go on a road trip through the U.S. Hamonic’s does not yet qualify as fully vaccinated, though he will be soon after recently receiving his second shot. Still, with quarantine rules how they are, he’ll most likely miss the next three games and join the team in Montreal when they face the Canadiens on November 29.
- The San Jose Sharks have recalled Scott Reedy from the AHL, after his blistering start with the Barracuda. The 22-year-old forward has eight goals and 12 points in 12 games in what is his first full professional season.
- The Los Angeles Kings have returned Sean Durzi to the AHL, which could be nothing more than a paper transaction between games. The Kings don’t play again until Wednesday, meaning there is time to save a bit of cap space by moving Durzi off the roster in the meantime. The 23-year-old defenseman is still waiting to make his NHL debut after recording 13 points in 12 games for the Ontario Reign to start the year.
