It’s been a rough past few days if you’re a Carolina Hurricanes or Dallas Stars fan. Save for some epic comebacks, the NHL is careening down the path toward a Vegas Golden Knights/Florida Panthers Stanley Cup Final. In the meantime, though, we continue to provide some coverage of notable moves outside the league, bringing a recap of some of the day’s most notable non-NHL transactions.
- DEL club ERC Ingolstadt, who finished second in the league and lost in the championship series, is saying goodbye to two overseas players who were crucial on their playoff run. American forward Stefan Matteau and Canadian forward Ty Ronning will not be returning to the team next season, with Matteau’s future pro career in doubt and Ronning looking to head elsewhere. Ronning, a former New York Rangers prospect, had 21 points in 29 games with Ingolstadt after terminating his AHL deal with the Iowa Wild mid-season. Matteau, a 2012 first-round selection who last played in the NHL for Colorado in 2021-22, had 28 points in 35 games after a mid-season transfer from the SHL’s Linköping HC.
- Former Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Dominik Uher, now a DEL mainstay with the Fischtown Penguins, has inked a one-year extension with the club. The 30-year-old, selected in the fifth round of the 2011 NHL Draft, got into two NHL games with the Penguins in 2014-15 but had left for Europe by 2016. Since joining Fischtown in 2018-19, he’s recorded 96 points in 216 games for the club.
- After a six-game stint at the end of the season, defenseman Roman Kinal has signed a one-year extension with the AHL’s San Jose Barracuda. Kinal, 24, just wrapped up a five-season career at the University of Connecticut, where he served as captain in his final season and tied his career-high seven points.
