2020 SHL Week 10 Transactions

  • On Wednesday, the Michigan Gray Wolves‘ CHL affiliate in Cleveland placed D Gil Calvert on the injured list.  The 21-year-old Calvert showed a surprising scoring upside this season, with 14 points (8 goals, 6 assists) in 38 games.  To fill Calvert’s spot on the roster, Cleveland signed free-agent D Davis McNeely.  The blueliner is the younger brother of Washington Galaxy star Jefferson McNeely.
  • On Friday, the Quebec Tigres activated D Kevin Buchanan from the injured list.  Buchanan has struggled to stay healthy this time around, he missed over a month with an upper-body injury.  Injuries have limited the veteran blueliner to just 14 games so far this season. To acccommodate Buchanan’s return to the roster, the Tigres sent D Boris Zhzhynov to their CHL affiliate in Halifax.  Zhzhynov appeared in just 5 games for Quebec this season, and did not record a point. In order to make room on Halifax’s roster, the team released D Igor Shovshenkov.
  • On Saturday, the Wolves’ Cleveland affiliate activated RW Boris Badenov from the injured list.  The winger went down with a lower-body injury before the All-Star break.  In order to make room for Badenov on the roster, assistant coach Glenn Reichler, who briefly un-retired to fill Badenov’s roster spot, returned to his bench duties.  The 35-year-old Reichler appeared in 8 games for Cleveland, recording two assists.
  • Also on Saturday, the Dakota Jackalopes demoted D Victor Addison to their farm team in Idaho.  This move was not made due to dissatisfaction with Addison’s performance, but rather due to a blueline shortage on the farm.  Idaho is currently missing Ds Rusty Sienna and Clark Blanchard, both day-to-day with injuries.  Rather than sign a player to a short-term deal to fill the spot, the cost-conscious Jackalopes sent Addison down to fill the gap.  Addison has appeared in 19 games for Dakota so far this season, recording 7 assists.
