- In the wake of Jack Hughes and Jonas Siegenthaler’s injuries, the Devils bring center Shane Bowers and defenseman Cal Foote. The Devils place Siegenthaler on injured reserve in a corresponding move. The Devils have not placed Siegenthaler on long-term injured reserve which could certainly be indicative of his potential return to the lineup. [New Jersey Devils]
- The Penguins were absolutely embarrassed by the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada on Dec. 16. Circle that game. Circle the fallout. In the aftermath of that game, players, including Erik Karlsson, called out their team. The frustration and disgust were palpable in the locker room and in the hallway, but it was bigger than that. The negativity hung over the franchise like a cold, wet fog over Lake Ontario. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
- The Philadelphia Flyers acquired Jamie Drysdale and a 2025 second-round pick from the Anaheim Ducks on Monday in exchange for Cutter Gauthier, and it leaves them in a rather interesting spot. Following the Drysdale trade, the Flyers now have eight defensemen on their roster. Once Noah Cates is activated from injured reserve, the house will be even more packed, and that will mean three guys are going to have to be healthy scratches. Or, at least that’s what we think.
