With most leagues now underway for their 2023-24 seasons, there is still a lot of activity on the minor transactions front as players look to secure spots before it’s too late. Here’s a rundown of transaction activity that has an NHL connection.
- The Kings’ AHL affiliate in Ontario announced that they’ve released veteran goalie Jean-Francois Berube from his tryout agreement; he had previously been in camp with Los Angeles. The 32-year-old has bounced around the minors over the past few seasons, spending time with five different organizations over the last four years. Berube last saw NHL action back in 2021-22 with Columbus but will have his work cut out for him to get back to the top level as first, he’ll need to catch on with another AHL squad.
- After getting cut from Carolina’s training camp, veteran forward Nick Shore is returning to HV71 in Sweden according to a report from SportExpressen’s Johan Svensson and Jacob Johannesson. The 31-year-old last saw regular action back in 2019-20 with Toronto and Winnipeg and has 299 games at the top level under his belt.
- Scott Harrington’s tryout with Anaheim’s farm team was short-lived as AHL San Diego announced that he has been released. The 30-year-old finished last season with the Ducks after being claimed on waivers at the end of February and held his own, picking up four points in 17 games while averaging over 18 minutes a night. Now, he’ll have to head to a new organization and will likely have to settle for an AHL contract at this point to catch on somewhere.
