The preseason gets underway today but most of the roster shuffling won’t start for a few more days at least. In the meantime, we’ll look at some of the smaller moves around the hockey world.
- Hurricanes prospect Alexander Perevalov is listed on Kunlun Red Star’s roster which means that the 18-year-old has been loaned to the KHL. Perevalov was a third-round pick by Carolina (71st overall) back in July after spending most of last year with Yaroslavl in the MHL which is also where he started this season. Now, he’ll get a taste of playing in Russia’s top division for the time being.
- Veteran winger Bobby Butler isn’t ready to hang up his skates just yet. Worcester of the ECHL announced that they’ve inked the 35-year-old to a one-year deal. Butler played in 130 career NHL games over parts of five seasons and actually went more than two years without playing before signing with the Raiders back in January. Worcester is an affiliate team of the Islanders.
