The NHL season has slowed to a crawl, and the next few weeks could be relatively uneventful. That doesn’t mean things have stopped in European and minor leagues though, as those teams continue to fill out their rosters for the upcoming season. As always, we’ll keep track of the notable moves right here:
- Blaine Byron, who has been a strong AHL performer ever since leaving the University of Maine, has taken his talents to Germany for the upcoming season. The 26-year-old had six goals and six goals and 12 points in 17 games for the Ontario Reign last season, but will play 2020-21 for Eisbaren Berin of the DEL.
- Tyler Steenbergen, who was left unqualified by the Los Angeles Kings, has signed with TPS in Finland. Perhaps best known for his gold medal-winning tally at the 2018 World Junior Championship, Steenbergen had just 13 points in 36 games for the Tucson Roadrunners this past season. He was included in a minor league trade between the Arizona Coyotes and Kings in July, but won’t actually suit up for Los Angeles or their minor league affiliate.
