2020 SHL Week 5 Transactions

  • On Wednesday, the Washington Galaxy placed D Grant Warriner on the injured list.  Warriner suffered an upper-body injury late in the second period of Tuesday’s 4-2 win over Michigan and did not return.  He is expected to be sidelined for about 3 weeks.  The team did not make a corresponding move at the time.
  • On Friday, the Dakota Jackalopes placed RW Arkady Golynin on the injured list.  During Thursday’s game against New York, Golynin crumpled to the ice after a late-game knee-on-knee collision with Night D Dominic Sanchez, a hit that resulted in a one-game suspension for Sanchez.  Golynin will miss at least a couple of weeks with the injury.  This could be a serious blow to the Jackalopes, as the winger led the team in points with 18 and was second in goals with 6 at the time the injury occurred.  To fill Golynin’s roster spot, the Jackalopes promoted RW Dylan Alizarin from their CHL affiliate in Idaho.
  • Also on Friday, the Jackalopes’ affiliate in Idaho activated D Georg Ochre from the injured list.  Ochre was sidelined for almost 3 weeks with an upper-body injury.  To accommodate Ochre’s returned to the roster, Idaho released D Gerry Michaud from his temporary deal with the organization.  Michaud appeared in 4 games for Idaho and did not record a point, although he did have 5 blocks.

2020 SHL Week 3 Transactions

  • On Monday, the Kansas City Smoke‘s CHL affiliate in Omaha placed D Lowell Sharkey on the injured list.  Sharkey suffered a serious lower-body injury during Sunday’s game against Idaho, and is expected to be sidelined for over a month.  The loss is a major blow to the organization, as the 20-year-old blueliner is a prized prospect who was off to a strong start, with 10 points (2 goals, 8 assists) and a +6 rating in 9 games.  To fill Sharkey’s spot on the roster, the team signed D Fyodor Agronozov.  The 26-year-old Agronozov spent last year in Oshawa, where he recorded 20 points (3 goals, 17 assists) in 62 games.
  • Also on Monday, the Dakota Jackalopes‘ CHL affiliate in Idaho placed D Georg Ochre on the injured list.  Ochre, who was last season’s CHL Finals MVP, sustained an upper-body injury on Sunday against Omaha.  Much like Sharkey, Ochre was playing quite well; he recorded 9 points (2 goals, 7 assists) in 9 games before his injury.  Unlike Sharkey, Ochre is expected to miss only 2 to 3 weeks.  Ochre’s spot will be taken by D Gerry Michaud, a 25-year-old who recorded 5 assists in 57 games with Maine last season.
  • On Friday, the Hamilton Pistols demoted F Michael Jennings to their CHL affiliate in Oshawa, and called up C Hilliard Macy from Oshawa.  The Pistols were in need of a center after Calvin Frye suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday’s 7-6 win over Hershey.  Although Frye is day-to-day, Jennings is a natural winger and the Pistols didn’t want to plug him in at center for any extended length of time.  The 20-year-old MAcy has had a solid season in Oshawa, with 7 goals and 3 assists in 11 games.
  • Also on Friday, the Hershey Bliss placed LW Russell Nahorniak on the injured list.  Nahorniak suffered a major lower-body injury when he was upended by a violent check in Thursday’s game.  He is expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks.  Nahorniak was a key contributor on Hershey’s second line, with 9 points (5 goals, 4 assists) in 11 games.  To fill Nahorniak’s spot, the Bliss called up LW Sergei Tarisov from their affiliate in Milwaukee.  Tarisov, 22, had put up 7 points (2 goals, 5 assists) in 11 minor-league games this season.  The Bliss also signed F Jerry Cazenovia to a short-term contract to replace Tarisov in Milwaukee.
