The Flyers recalled Phil Varone from Lehigh Valley (AHL).
Varone continues to put up impressive numbers at the AHL level, collecting 11 goals and 17 assists (28 points) in 22 games this season. This is one year after leading the Phantoms with 70 points (23G / 47A) in 74 games. Varone could get a chance to make his Flyers debut on their five-game road-trip.
The Capitals have recalled Riley Barber from Hershey (AHL).
The Sabres have recalled Scott Wedgewood from Rochester (AHL).
Wedgewood has gone 8-4-0 with a 2.91 GAA and .907 SV% in 14 games with Rochester this season. With Carter Hutton out with an upper-body injury, look for Wedgewood to backup Linus Ullmark on Saturday.
The Hurricanes have recalled Alex Nedeljkovic from Charlotte (AHL).
Nedeljkovic is expected to serve as Petr Mrazek’s backup on Friday with Curtis McElhinney out with an undisclosed injury. Nedeljkovic, was a second-round pick in 2014, and has performed well in the AHL this season. The 22-year-old is 12-4-0 with a 2.94 GAA and .890 SV% in 18 games with the Checkers.
The Sabres have recalled Matt Tennyson from Rochester (AHL).
Tennyson has just three points (1G / 2A) in eight games with Rochester this season. There’s no indication whether or not he will be in the Sabres lineup on Saturday but he carries no fantasy value regardless.
The Penguins have recalled J-S Dea rom Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL).
Dea has picked up two assists in two games since joining Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after being claimed off of waivers from New Jersey. Dea returns to the NHL, where he had five points (3G / 2A) in 20 games earlier this year.
The Rangers recalled Matt Beleskey from Hartford (AHL).
Beleskey was sent down earlier in the week because the Rangers had five days off but was always expected to return to the big club. Don’t expect much from the 30-year-old who has just 10 points (3G / 7A) in 15 AHL contests this season.

The Golden Knights have recalled Reid Duke from Chicago (AHL).
Duke, 22, was the first Golden Knight ever and he is one-step closer to his NHL debut after replacing Daniel Carr on the active roster. Duke has six goals and seven assists (13 points) in 22 games with Chicago this season.
The Golden Knights have sent Daniel Carr to Chicago (AHL).
Carr recorded one goal in six games with the Golden Knights during his call-up but returns to the AHL with Reid Duke coming the other way. Carr has 22 points (9G / 13A) in 16 games with Chicago.
