The Jets have recalled Sami Niku from Manitoba (AHL) ahead of Game 3.
The Wild recalled Carson Soucy from Iowa (AHL).
Soucy spent the majority of the 2017-18 season in the AHL, where he amassed 15 points (1G / 14A) in 67 games, but he also appeared in three games with Minnesota. With Ryan Suter definitely out to start the playoffs and Jared Spurgeon a big question mark, Soucy has been recalled and is expected to open the playoffs on the Wild’s second pairings.
The Coyotes have recalled Dakota Mermis from Tucson (AHL).
Mermis, 24, has two goals and 17 assists (19 points) in 57 games with the Roadrunners this season. He returns to the NHL, where he failed to record a point in seven games with the Coyotes earlier this season.
The Red Wings have assigned Tom McColum to Grand Rapids (AHL).
McCollum backed up Jimmy Howard on Tuesday but returns to the Griffins where he is the No.1 netminder for the playoff push, at least until Jared Coreau is sent back.
The Red Wings have assigned Joe Hicketts to Grand Rapids (AHL).
Hicketts had three assists in his short five-game stint with the Red Wings this season. Detroit’s season is virtually over, but the Griffins’ isn’t so Detroit will return some reinforcements. The 21-year-old defenseman has scored three goals with seven assists (10 points) in 63 games with Grand Rapids this season, which is way-off of his 34-points from a season ago.
The Red Wings have assigned Evgeny Svechnikov to Grand Rapids (AHL).
Svechnikov picked up two goals and two assists (four points) in 14 games during his call-up. The Red Wings season is virtually over, but the Griffins’ isn’t so Detroit will return some reinforcements. The 21-year-old has collected seven goals and 15 assists (22 points) in 52 games with Grand Rapids this season.
Pirri was recalled by the Golden Knights and is expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday.

The Sabres have recalled Alexander Nylander from Rochester (AHL).
Nylander, 20, was the No.8 overall pick in 2016 and is coming off of a decent year with the Americans. Nylander has picked up seven goals and 19 assists (26 points) in 48 games this season and is expected to make his season debut in the final week of the season. Nylander had one assist in four games with the Sabres a season ago.
The Islanders have sent Chris Gibson to Bridgeport (AHL).
Gibson was 2-3-2 with a 3.65 GAA and .908 SV% in eight games with the Islanders during his call-up. Gibson returns to the Sound Tigers where he has gone 18-11-1 with a 2.31 GAA and .909 SV% in 33 games.
The Red Wings have recalled Tom McCollum from Grand Rapids (AHL).
McCollum, 28, has gone 18-13-2 with a 2.72 GAA and .909 SV% in 34 games with the Griffins this season. McCollum has been recalled to backup Jimmy Howard on Tuesday because Jared Coreau is out with an illness.
The Wild have recalled Carson Soucy from Iowa (AHL).
Soucy, 23, was a fifth round pick in 2013 and has picked up 15 points (1G / 14A) in 67 games in his first full pro season in Iowa. Soucy has been recalled because Ryan Suter is out indefinitely with a fractured fibula.
The Jets have recalled Sami Niku from Manitoba (AHL).
Niku, 21, was a seventh round pick in 2015 and has had a great debut season in North America. The Finnish defenseman has registered 15 goals and 37 assists (52 points) in 71 games with Manitoba after spending the early parts of his career in Finland.
The Flyers have recalled Alex Lyon from Lehigh Valley (AHL).
Lyon went back to the AHL with Michal Neuvirth returning to the crease on Thursday. Neuvirth was re-injured almost immediately, so Lyon returns to backup Petr Mrazek.
The Blues have recalled Chris Butler from San Antonio (AHL).
Butler has not recorded a point in two games with the Blues, but has 29 points (8G / 21A) in 60 games with the Rampage. There’s no word on whether or not he will draw into the lineup on Saturday.
