The Oilers recalled Caleb Jones from Bakersfield (AHL).
With Oscar Klefbom out for an extended period of time, it looks like Jones will jump from the AHL to the NHL and leapfrog Chris Wideman and Jason Garrison on the depth chart. Jones, who was a fourth-round pick in 2015, has two goals and 10 assists (12 points) in 21 games with Bakersfield this season.
The Predators have reassigned Eeli Tolvanen to Milwaukee (AHL).
Tolvanen did not do much during his call-up, scoring just one goal on two shots and adding an assist in four games. Tolvanen is one of the NHL’s top prospects but still needs a little more time in the AHL. His demotion is a good sign that the Predators will get Kyle Turris back on Thursday.
The Oilers have assigned Cooper Marody to Bakersfield (AHL).
Marody has not recorded a point in six games with the Oilers this season. The 21-year-old returns to Bakersfield, where he has registered 14 points (4G / 10A) in 11 games this year.
The Kings have recalled Daniel Brickley from Ontario (AHL).
Dion Phaneuf was sent back to Los Angeles after suffering an injury on Tuesday night, so Brickley has been recalled and will likely play on Thursday. Brickley has two goals and three assists (five points) in 21 games with the Reign this season.
The Blues have sent Jordan Kyrou to San Antonio (AHL).
Kyrou appeared in just two games during his call-up, scoring one goal on two shots while averaging 11:58 TOI/gm. Kyrou returns to the AHL, where he has five goals and five assists (10 points) in 14 games.

The Ducks recalled Josh Mahura from San Diego (AHL).
Mahura was sent down on Monday, likely a paper move to save some money, but returns to the Ducks and is expected to be in the lineup on Wednesday. Mahura has just one assist while averaging 16:40 TOI/gm in six games with the Ducks this season.
The Blackhawks have assigned Alexandre Fortin to Rockford (AHL).
The Blackhawks have had a tough time figuring out where to play Fortin, as he’s moved up and down from the second and fourth line all season. Fortin has six points (3G / 3A) in 24 games with Chicago but heads to the AHL with Dylan Sikura getting a shot with the big club.
The Blackhawks have recalled Carl Dahlstrom from Rockford (AHL).
Dahlstrom, 23, was a second-round pick in 2013 and has three assists in 11 career NHL games. Dahlstrom has likely been recalled as insurance for Wednesday’s game. Dahlstrom has eight points (1G / 7A) in 22 games with Rockford this season.
The Blackhawks have recalled Dylan Sikura from Rockford (AHL).
Sikura was expected to make the Blackhawks out of training camp after picking up three assists in five games with the Blackhawks at the end of last season. The 23-year-old has registered 18 points (9G / 9A) in 26 games with the IceHogs this season and should make his season debut on Wednesday.
The Hurricanes have recalled Janne Kuokkanen from Charlotte (AHL).
Kuokkanen, 20, was a second-round pick (No.43 overall) in 2016 and appeared in four NHL games last season. Kuokkanen leads the Checkers in points with 27 (11G / 16A) in 26 games this season. He could make his season debut on Thursday with Micheal Ferland leaving Tuesday’s game.
The Lightning sent Ed Pasquale to Syracuse (AHL).
Pasquale made his NHL debut during his call-up but returns to the AHL with Andrei Vasilevskiy’s return just around the corner. Pasquale has gone 5-2-0 with a 2.98 GAA and .900 SV% in nine games with the Crunch this year.

The Panthers have recalled Anthony Greco from Springfield (AHL).
Greco was an unrestricted free agent out of the University of Ohio State. The 25-year-old has recorded 12 goals and 11 assists (23 points) in 24 games this year, which is his third AHL season.
The Sabres have assigned Scott Wedgewood to Rochester (AHL).
Wedgewood was recalled to serve as Linus Ullmark’s backup on Saturday with Carter Hutton sidelined. Hutton will return as the backup on Tuesday, so Wedgewood heads back to the AHL.
The Rangers have assigned Steven Fogarty to Hartford (AHL).
Fogarty has not registered a point in 10 games with the Rangers this season. His return to the AHL suggests that Mats Zucarrello will be back against the Coyotes on Friday.
The Rangers have sent Cole Schneider to Hartford (AHL).
Schneider came up as a reserve forward and heads back to the Wolf Pack, where he has 17 points (8G / 9A) in 25 games this season.
The Kings will loan Gabriel Vilardi to Team Canada for the World Juniors.
Vilardi was the No.11 overall pick in 2017 has been limited over the last year with a back injury but recently started a conditioning stint with Ontario (AHL). The Kings top prospect has one assist in those four games and should be one of the top prospects at this year’s World Junior Championship.
The Ducks have sent Andy Welinski to San Diego (AHL).
Welinski heads back to the AHL because the Ducks needed to call-up Jared Coreau after Ryan Miller got hurt on Sunday. Welinski has six points (2G / 4A) in eight games with San Diego.
The Ducks have sent Josh Mahura to San Diego (AHL).
Mahura played in three games during his most recent call-up, giving him six NHL games on the season. Mahura goes back to the AHL, where he has nine points (1G / 8A) in 14 games.
The Ducks have recalled Jared Coreau from San Diego (AHL).
With Ryan Miller leaving Sunday’s game with a lower-body injury, Comeau comes up to be John Gibson’s backup. The former Red Wings netminde has gone 3-6-1 with a 3.66 GAA and .895 SV% in 12 games with San Diego this season. He likely won’t see any NHL action unless Miller is forced to miss an extended period of time.
