  • Mike Chambers: The Avalanche send defenseman Ryan Wilson to the AHL on a 14-day conditioning stint.
  • Michael Russo: The Wild haven’t officially sent Matt Dumba back to Portland of the WHL just yet, but it’s sounding like it’s close. He hasn’t been assigned as the Wild want him to see their doctors regarding his injury/virus (weight loss).
  • Elliott Pap: The Canucks recall goaltender Joacim Eriksson.
  • Tom Gulitti: Martin Brodeur will start in net for the Devils against the Flyers.
  • Andy Strickland: Brian Elliott will start in net for the Blues. Jaroslav Halak is feeling better and will be their backup.
