Two names of consequence for Winnipeg are Harkins and Toninato. Harkins is a 2015 second-round pick who has been an AHL All-Star and scored 25 goals and 50 points in just 44 games for the Manitoba Moose last season.
He was in contention for a depth role in Winnipeg, but will now head to the Moose to likely be a top scorer there. As for Toninato, he’s a 29-year-old veteran who was in a battle for a fourth-line or spare center role with the Jets. There was some belief that Toninato could be preferred by head coach Rick Bowness over more inexperienced options such as David Gustafsson or Rasmus Kupari, but it seems now that Kupari’s spot on the roster is all but assured, while Gustafsson stands a solid chance of making the opening-night roster as well.
In Vancouver, there are some intriguing players here. Rathbone was once a star defenseman at Harvard University and has impressed at the AHL level, scoring 40 points in 39 games in 2021-22 with an AHL All-Rookie team selection. Injuries and underperformance in the NHL have cost him his prime spot in Vancouver’s future plans, though. Perhaps some team believes it can unlock the upside he has flashed by giving him a fresh start.
Alongside Rathbone is Dries, who saw extended action as Vancouver’s third-line center last season. He was overmatched in that role, but there could a be a team optimistic that he can hold down a fourth-line or spare center job.
Some other intriguing names are Domingue, a quality third goalie with some NHL experience that could interest goalie-needy teams, two-time AHL MVP Tynan, and Fagemo, who scored 23 goals in the AHL last season and was the 50th overall pick at the 2019 draft.
