As many as you know, NHL hockey will cease play until further notice. With no timetable as to when the season or what the newest CBA will look like teams were busy signing players to new contracts as well as assigning players to their team's AHL affiliates. Players such as Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Michael Stone, and Andy Miele were among the many players sent down in time for AHL training camps, which start at the end of the month. As mentioned in yesterday's tracks, its expected that today we will see NHLers jumping ship and joining teams over in Europe. More information on that once it becomes available. And much more info on the rest of this mess after the jump.
