As the signings around the NHL start to pick up with free agency fast approaching, there have been some other minor moves around the hockey world as well. Here is a rundown of some of the recent ones.
- Flames prospect Cole Huckins was traded from Acadie-Bathurst to Sherbrooke in exchange for a second-round pick as the QMJHL trade window opened up on Saturday. The 19-year-old was a third-round pick by Calgary last year (77th overall) and had a dozen goals and 14 assists in 41 games with the Titan this past season while adding four points in eight playoff contests. Huckins has yet to sign his entry-level deal and will need a big season with the Phoenix in 2022-23 to help secure his first contract.
- Pending Red Wings RFA goaltender Filip Larsson is staying in Sweden as Kristianstad of the second-tier Allsvenskan announced that they’ve signed the netminder to a one-year deal. The 23-year-old spent the majority of his three-year, entry-level contract playing overseas as he wound up suiting up just seven times for Detroit’s AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids back in 2019-20. Larsson split this past season between Frederikshavn in Denmark and Almtuna in Sweden.
- Former NHL winger Luke Adam has decided to stay overseas as Straubing of the DEL in Germany announced they’ve signed the 32-year-old. Adam previously played in 90 NHL games over parts of five seasons and his journey in Germany will continue next year as Straubing will be his fifth different team in as many years.
