So how did you enjoy day 1? I was unfortunately not able to watch any games, but did listen to the Canadiens/Leafs game on the radio. Montreal did not play a strong game after the first period, and both goalies were spectacular. For a review of that game, read Jackson Scarrow’s review.


So there wasn’t much in terms of transactions yesterday, but the 2 players placed on waivers were claimed. Here is a full list of transactions:


The Buffalo Sabers Signed forwards Riley Boychuk and Jonathan Parker to three- year entry level NHL contracts.

The Chicago Blackhawks Recalled center Brandon Pirri from Rockford (AHL).

The Dallas Stars Signed defenseman Jamie Oleksiak to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Montreal Canadiens Recalled forward Andreas Engqvist from Hamilton (AHL).

The New York Rangers Claimed defenseman Jeff Woywitka off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens; assigned defenseman Stu Bickel to Connecticut (AHL).

The Phoenix Coyotes Signed forward Martin Hanzal to a five-year contract extension; assigned goaltender Curtis McElhinney and defenseman Nathan Oystrick to Portland (AHL).

The Winnipeg Jets Claimed forward Brett MacLean off waivers from the Phoenix Coyotes; assigned forward Patrice Cormier to St. John’s (AHL).


Here`s a quick rundown of the 3 games from last night:


Montreal: 0






Pittsburgh: 4

Vancouver: 3

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
