It’s a busy Tuesday evening in the NHL with 13 games on the schedule, including Joel Edmundson and Justin Faulk facing their former teammates in St. Louis. The former will receive his Stanley Cup ring and will have his parents in attendance to watch. Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic tweets that Edmundson’s family is being flown in from Manitoba by the Blues so they can see their son honored by his old team. As the Blues and everyone else in the league prepare for tonight’s action, we’ll keep track of all the minor moves.
- The New Jersey Devils have activated Ben Street from injured reserve, assigning him to the minor leagues immediately. Colton White won’t be there to greet him however, as the 22-year old defenseman has been recalled to the NHL. The Devils were without Sami Vatanen or Nico Hischier at the morning skate.
- After losing Frederik Andersen to injury last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled Kasimir Kaskisuo from the minor leagues. It’s not clear yet how long Andersen will be out (if at all) but the Maple Leafs obviously need to play it safe with their franchise goaltender.
- Martin Fehervary has been recalled by the Washington Capitals, who are preparing to take on the Los Angeles Kings tonight. The team has had inconsistent results from several of their defenders and based on the line rushes reported by Samantha Pell of the Washington Post, it looks like Jonas Siegenthaler will be scratched.
- The Capitals have also recalled Vitek Vanecek after Ilya Samsonov left practice for precautionary reasons. The goaltender was hit up high by Alex Ovechkin and did not return, though the early expectation is that the injury is not serious.
- Curtis Lazar is dealing with an illness for the Buffalo Sabres, so the team has recalled Rasmus Asplund from the minor leagues. Asplund has played 28 games for the Sabres this season, scoring three points.
