As is often the case, Saturday is a busy day on the NHL calendar with a total of 11 games on the docket which means there should be plenty of roster shuffling. We’ll keep tabs on those moves here as well as others of note around the hockey world.
- The Canadiens have returned Charles Hudon to AHL Laval, per the AHL’s Transactions Page. The winger has been shuttled back and forth routinely in recent weeks in order to slow down his waiver clock. Hudon has played in nine games with Montreal so far this season, recording one assist.
- Veteran Eric Tangradi has decided to return for a second stint with the Red Wings organization as their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids announced that they’ve signed the winger for the rest of the season. He had been playing with Barys Astana in the KHL prior to the move. Tangradi has a total of 150 career NHL games under his belt including six with New Jersey last season.
- CapFriendly reports that the Anaheim Ducks have recalled forward Sam Carrick from the San Diego Gulls of the AHL, while sending goaltender Anthony Stolarz down. The team likely recalled Carrick due to a pending injury to forward Nick Ritchie, although little is known about him. The 27-year-old Carrick has 10 goals and 16 points in 18 games with the Gulls.
