Eight games grace the NHL schedule for this evening, including the Minnesota Wild and Edmonton Oilers facing off in an important Western Conference battle. The two clubs are jockeying for position in their respective divisions, hoping to secure home ice in the first round and avoid the wildcard battle entirely. As those teams and others prepare for action, we’ll keep track of all the minor league shuffling.
- The Nashville Predators have reassigned Cole Smith to the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL. The team doesn’t play again until Tuesday, meaning they can save some dollars and cap space by moving Smith down for the meantime, without filling his roster spot.
- After last night’s game, the St. Louis Blues have recalled Dakota Joshua and sent Calle Rosen to the AHL. The swap gives the team an extra forward as they travel to Philadelphia for Tuesday’s match, the final game of the road trip.
- The Los Angeles Kings have sent Jacob Moverare back to the AHL, as the team waits for their next game later this week. In a quirk of the schedule, the Kings will play the Arizona Coyotes twice in a row, in Arizona, with the second match coming on Wednesday night. Moverare, a 23-year-old rookie, has played just three games this season with the Kings.
