Happy Thanksgiving to those in the U.S., though it certainly won’t be much of a celebration for some hockey fans. The NHL has no games scheduled for today, as they defer to the NFL’s all-day coverage. Still, that doesn’t necessarily mean front offices are empty today, and like always we’ll keep track of any minor league shuffling.
- Adam Ruzicka won’t be attending the Stockton Heat thanksgiving party, as he has been recalled to the Calgary Flames. The team announced that Brad Richardson’s absence from practice is just a maintenance day, but they’ll have the young Ruzicka join them anyway. Now 22, the 2017 fourth-round pick has been dominant in the minor leagues this season, scoring ten goals in 13 games with Stockton.
- The Anaheim Ducks have loaned Vinni Lettieri back to the San Diego Gulls, after he failed to get into a game on this recall. The 26-year-old forward has played just three games this season for Anaheim, recording two points.
- The Vegas Golden Knights have sent forwards Paul Cotter, Ben Jones, and Jonas Rondbjerg to the Henderson Silver Knights, per CapFriendly (all Twitter links). All three have been sent back and forth throughout the season and at least some of them will likely be brought back up over the coming days.
