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).
