Artemi Kniazev was also sent back to junior, while Sasha Chmelevski and Jeffrey Truchon-Viel were assigned to the AHL. Maxim Letunov was also placed on injured reserve, while Rudolfs Balcers, who was claimed off waivers from the Ottawa Senators yesterday, is now listed as ‘NHL Non-Roster’ on CapFriendly.
Also worth noting is that both Nikolai Knyzhov and and Jacob Middleton made the roster. It'll be interesting to see how each player is used to start the season.
