Just four games on the schedule this evening but one mammoth matchup in Las Vegas. The Golden Knights will welcome the Pacific-leading Calgary Flames for a game that is surely to be a war on the ice. Calgary has lost their last two and is having trouble in net again while the Golden Knights are on a four-game winning streak. As teams prepare for tonight’s action we’ll be right here keeping track of all the minor moves.
- Just before their game last night the Minnesota Wild returned Matt Read to the AHL, already the fourth transactions he’s been involved in since the beginning of March. The veteran forward has played just six games for the team this season and has a single goal. UPDATE: Amazingly, Read has already been recalled by the Wild under emergency conditions.
- The Carolina Hurricanes have returned Haydn Fleury to the minor leagues as well after Calvin de Haan had recovered enough to get back in the lineup. Fleury hasn’t been able to crack the NHL lineup on a regular basis this season, playing just 14 games after suiting up in 67 contests last season. The constant recalls have also limited his time in the minor leagues, as Fleury has only totaled 36 games across both levels.
- Guillaume Brisebois has been recalled by the Vancouver Canucks after Ben Hutton suffered an injury and is unavailable. Brisebois has played two games for the Canucks this season, instead spending most of the year with the Utica Comets where he has 11 points in 49 games.
