There’s a busy schedule tonight across the NHL, with fifteen contests set to be played. Highlighted by the New Jersey Devils’ chase of a franchise-record fourteenth-straight win, tonight looks set to be a treat for hockey fans. As these games are set to begin, teams across the hockey world are making tweaks to their roster. We’ll keep track of all those moves here.
- Theodor Niederbach, one of three Detroit Red Wings 2020 second-round picks, is headed down a division. Per a team announcement, HockeyAllsvenskan’s MoDo Hockey has received Niederbach on a loan from his SHL club, Rogle BK. The hope is that Niederbach can find more offensive success in Ornskoldsvik than he was finding in the SHL, as he has just one goal and zero assists in 17 SHL games so far this year.
- Pavel Gogolev, an undrafted prospect who was signed into the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, has been assigned to the team’s ECHL affiliate, the Newfoundland Growlers. Gogolev had been with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies, and he played a single game there. Gogolev should be an elite scorer in Newfoundland, as he scored 20 points in just 14 games there last season to go along with eight points in ten playoff games.
- Veteran Swiss league forward Julian Schmutz has just seven points in 22 games so far this season playing for HC Davos, but that hasn’t stopped him from securing his playing future. Per a team announcement, rival Swiss club SCL Tigers has signed Schmutz to a three-year contract, set to begin after this season. The Tigers have had a tough season so far in 2022-23, with just nine wins in 23 games, so they’ll hope that Schmutz can improve their overall game next season.
