Two days into the NHL season and we’ve already seen a huge number of injuries pile up for teams around the league. With that in mind we’ll likely see some movement between the AHL and NHL in the coming days. As always, we’ll keep track of all the moves around the hockey world right here.
- The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled Dennis Gilbert from the AHL, though he was already in Europe with them preparing for today’s action. The Blackhawks take on the Philadelphia Flyers this afternoon from Prague, Czech Republic. Gilbert will be playing in just the second NHL game of his career, filling in for the injured Calvin de Haan.
- Former NHL goaltender Karri Ramo has signed a contract with Djurgardens IF taking him to the SHL for the first time in his career. Ramo has played in nearly every elite league in the world, and will try to continue his playing days in Sweden.
- Stefan Noesen has agreed to an AHL contract with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, after failing to find an NHL job this summer. The 26-year old played in 41 games for the New Jersey Devils last season, recording eight points. Originally a first-round pick of the Ottawa Senators, Noesen has just 159 NHL games under his belt.
- Dalton Prout has been moved to injured reserve, meaning the San Jose Sharks needed another body on the blueline. The team has decided to recall Jacob Middleton for that purpose, though Erik Karlsson did return to practice today after the birth of his daughter kept him out of the team’s season-opener.
- As expected, the Edmonton Oilers have recalled Ethan Bear once again from the minor leagues. Coming up with him from Bakersfield will be William Lagesson, while Evan Bouchard is on his way back down.
