After a busy 11-game game slate on Saturday, there are only five games on the schedule today – though spread out throughout the day. While there may not be any heavyweight match-ups, four of the five contests feature a team currently in playoff position. As teams prepare for those games or just the week ahead, keep up with all of the roster moves of the day right here:
- Defenseman Jacob Bernard-Docker and forward Clark Bishop were sent to the taxi squad by the Ottawa Senators today, ending their stints on the active roster. Bernard-Docker has gotten solid looks in the lineup this season, including playing with Thomas Chabot.
- The Columbus Blue Jackets have two key contributors back in action, as defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov and rookie forward Cole Sillinger have both been activated from COVID Protocol. In order to accommodate the additions, the Jackets have moved defenseman Jake Christiansen to the taxi squad. Down in the minors, the team has also demoted goaltender Cam Johnson from the AHL’s Cleveland Monsters to the ECHL’s Florida Everblades.
- Shuffling players today, the Nashville Predators reassigned forward Cole Smith and defenseman Matt Tennyson to the taxi squad from the active roster. They also sent defenseman Jeremy Davies down to the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals. Only one of those players has points for Nashville this season — Tennyson has three in two games.
