As July comes to a close and we get closer to the end of arbitration hearings and contract holdouts, teams continue to fill our their organizational depth charts. Here are some minor moves from around the league. We’ll keep updating as more come in:
- The Ontario Reign have signed Ryan Stanton to a one-year AHL contract. Stanton played the last two seasons for the Bakersfield Condors and will get to stay in California for the time being. The 30-year old has played 120 games in the NHL, though the last one came during the 2015-16 season. He’ll offer some experience on the blue line in Ontario.
- The Colorado Eagles continue to load up on depth, this time signing Tim McGauley, Felix Lauzon and Eric Williams to two-way minor league contracts for 2019-20. This will be the first professional contract for the 21-year old Lauzon, who took home the Guy Carbonneau Trophy last season as the QMJHL’s best defensive forward. He added 80 points in 68 regular season games and will try to continue that strong two-way play in the Colorado minor league system.
