10 potential free agents NHL Teams are considering from College Teams.  The group this season is rated as average by NHL scouts

Parker Ford, Providence College                      C/RW  (5-9,   185 right shot) excellent speed

Ethen Frank, Western Michigan University             C   (5-11, 185 right shot) Hobey Baker Nominee

Riese Gaber, University of North Dakota              RW  (5-8,   160 right shot) 

Akito Hirose, Minnesota State University                D   (6-0,   191   left shot) WCHA’s Rookie of the Year - all situations

Marc McLaughlin, Boston College                         C    (6-0,   205 right shot) leadership qualities, a captain at every level

Ben Meyers, University of Minnesota               C/LW   (5-11, 194   left shot)  considered best of the lot.

Travis Mitchell, Cornell University                          D   (6-3,   207  left shot) moves well for a big guy

Brandon Scanlin, University of Nebraska Omaha  D  (6-4,    213  left shot) one of the top D in College - all situations

Bobby Trivigno, University of Massachusetts         F   (5-8,    162  left shot) 

Taylor Ward, University of Nebraska Omaha          F   (6-2,   207 right shot) late bloomer, grew 8 inches at 17yo.

I like Meyers, Ward, Mitchell & Scanlin. If they're worth signing, they'd be freebees. Have to scour the College & European UFA markets.

Jack Eichel is one step closer to making his Vegas Golden Knights debut.  Head coach Peter DeBoer announced on Monday that Eichel has been cleared for contact and is getting closer and closer to making his debut. There is still no timetable for his return because as DeBoer noted on Monday, it is the first time he has participated in a full contact practice “in 17 or 18 months.”  It is still a noteworthy step in his rehab after undergoing surgery shortly after the trade from the Buffalo Sabres earlier this season.

It is encouraging news for the Golden Knights because Eichel’s debut will give them the kind of player they have been lacking in their quest for a Stanley Cup: An elite top-line center. The Golden Knights have had top-tier players on the wing, on defense, and in goal during their first five years in the NHL but they have never really had a player like Eichel to center the top line. That could be a game-changer assuming Eichel is healthy and able to play like he did in Buffalo.

As per Las Vegas GM Kelly McCrimmon, Jack Eichel will play Wednesday night against Colorado.

The Vegas Golden Knights had to remove one more player from their NHL roster in order to activate Jack Eichel, and they’ve decided it will be Adam Brooks. The depth forward has been placed on waivers according to CapFriendly, the third time he’s ended up there this season. Previously, Brooks had been claimed by the Montreal Canadiens from the Toronto Maple Leafs, and then the Golden Knights from the Canadiens. He’s now up for grabs once again

Ottawa Senators goalie Matt Murray was lifted from Tuesday’s loss to the St. Louis Blues with an injury.  Murray was replaced by Anton Forsberg midway through the third period after allowing his fourth goal of the game. On that goal, Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist buried a backdoor pass to score then tripped over Murray — landing on the goalie’s back and shoulder.

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the team has signed defenseman Mark Borowiecki to a one-year, $900,000 contract for the 2022-23 season.  Borowiecki, 32 (7/12/89), has skated in 39 games for the Predators in 2021-22, his second season with the organization, and has recorded two assists, a +2 rating and 103 penalty minutes. He leads all Nashville defensemen and is sixth among NHL blueliners in hits with 134; he is also 15th in the NHL in hits per 60 minutes at 15.3. The 6-foot-2, 204-pound native of Ottawa, Ont., has dished out at least five hits in 12 games this season, and has three times recorded a season-high eight hits, most recently doing so on Jan. 22 vs. Detroit. Borowiecki's 51 blocked shots are tied for the third-most on the Predators.

The Carolina Hurricanes had such little goaltending depth earlier this season that Jack LaFontaine had to be signed in the middle of his college season. Now they’ve pulled off another interesting move, assigning Pyotr Kochetkov back to the AHL’s Chicago Wolves.  Kochetkov had been loaned to Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the KHL for this season after signing his two-year, entry-level contract last year. He played 23 games there, recording an impressive .926 save percentage but with the recent announcement that following the Olympics the KHL will go directly into the postseason, his year was over.

The Toronto Maple Leafs claimed Adam Brooks off waivers on Wednesday. But his addition will force the team to make some roster decisions, and soon. And the waiver circle of life is complete.

Colorado Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon may be getting a call from the Department of Player Safety in the near future.  Vegas Golden Knights forward Nolan Patrick was forced to leave the game against the Avalanche Wednesday after MacKinnon hit him in the head with his shoulder. MacKinnon was given a two-minute minor for interference on the play and remained in the game.  The incident is a scary one but becomes worse due to the fact that Patrick has been dealing with head injuries for most of his career. The injuries kept him off the ice for the entire 2019-20 season with the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Winnipeg Jets have activated Logan Stanley from injured reserve and will insert him back into the lineup for the first time since January 20. The big defenseman is returning at the perfect time since Neal Pionk is unavailable. Pionk tested positive for coronavirus ten days ago with the team on the road and though he has played in the last two games, can’t travel back with the Jets to Canada until Tuesday.
