- Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson is on his way back to the Providence Bruins, sent down to the AHL by Boston. The 22-year old forward has played in nine games for both Boston and Providence this year, but will have to continue his season in the minor leagues.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs have made a paper transaction by sending defenseman Travis Dermott to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL to make space on the NHL roster for William Nylander, according to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston. Dermott, who is not required to pass through waivers to free up a roster spot, is expected to return before Tuesday’s game against Buffalo.
