Teams all around the league are setting their opening day rosters to get cap compliant, while minor league clubs are still out finalizing their groups for the upcoming season. We’ll be right here to keep track of all those moves like always:
- The Buffalo Sabres have done some cap gymnastics today, sending Henri Jokiharju and Victor Olofsson to the minor leagues and recalling Curtis Lazar, Jean-Sebastien Dea and Lawrence Pilut. The team also placed Zach Bogosian, Matt Hunwick, Brandon Montour and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen on injured reserve as expected. The moves are just salary-based, as Olofsson and Jokiharju are both still expected to be in the Sabres’ opening night lineup.
- The Laval Rocket have signed Kevin Lynch to a one-year AHL contract after he stood out as a potential option in training camp. Lynch, 28, missed all of last season due to injury but had 26 points in 57 games with the Syracuse Crunch in 2017-18.
- Former NHL goaltender Kristers Gudlevskis has left Dynamo Riga of the KHL after a mutual contract termination, leaving him free to sign with another team. The 27-year old goaltender had posted just an .863 save percentage through nine games this season.
