Eight games grace the NHL schedule this evening, including the return of Jack Hughes to the New Jersey Devils lineup against the San Jose Sharks. There is also a prime matchup between two Eastern Conference powerhouses when the Florida Panthers take on the Washington Capitals and a battle between the teams that have won the last three Stanley Cup championships. As those teams and others prepare for action, we’ll keep track of all the minor league shuffling.
- The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled Connor Bunnaman and Max Willman back up from the minor leagues, in time for their game tomorrow against the New York Rangers. The team only sent them down yesterday, in order to save a bit of salary on an off day. General manager Chuck Fletcher did explain at a press conference this morning that Kevin Hayes should be back soon, meaning these two may not be needed for long.
- With Hughes’ return imminent, the Devils have sent Chase De Leo back to the minor leagues. The 26-year-old, who is still the scoring leader for the Utica Comets, played in two games with New Jersey but failed to register a point.
- Michael McCarron has been recalled again by the Nashville Predators, after only going down yesterday. The big forward has played in six games for the Predators this season, but has yet to register a point.
- The Anaheim Ducks have recalled Vinni Lettieri from the AHL, bringing him back up after just a few days in the minors. The 26-year-old has played in three games for the Ducks this season, scoring two points.
