2020 SHL Week 7 Transactions

  • On Monday, the Kansas City Smoke recalled F David Facinelli from their CHL affiliate in Omaha and returned C Edz Zalmanis to Omaha.  The Smoke had a need for a center when Mike Rivera and Nile Bernard suffered injuries, so they promoted Zalmanis just over two weeks ago.  He appeared in 9 games during his stint with Kansas City, scoring 2 goals and adding 2 assists.
  • Also on Monday, the Michigan Gray Wolves placed RW Boris Badenov on the injured list.  Badenov, who was playing for their minor-league affiliate in Cleveland, suffered a lower-body injury in Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Omaha, and is expected to be out of action for 4 to 6 weeks.  To replace Badenov on the roster, assistant coach Glenn Reichler was activated and added to the roster.  (Story here.)
  • On Wednesday, the Quebec Tigres activated LW Stellan Fisker from the injured list.  Fisker missed 10 games with an upper-body injury suffered two and a half weeks earlier.  In order to make room for Fisker’s return to the roster, the Tigres returned LW Carl Bleyer to their affiliate in Halifax.  Bleyer appeared in 4 games for the Tigres, recording a goal.
  • On Friday, the Hershey Bliss placed minor-league D Seth Dowd on the injured list.  The 34-year-old Dowd, who was playing for their affiliate in Milwaukee, was taken off the ice on a stretcher after ramming head-first into the boards.  He underwent surgery and is expected to miss the rest of the season.  To replace Dowd on the Milwaukee roster, the Bliss signed D Knute Skoeglin, who appeared in 10 games for Milwaukee last season.
  • On Saturday, the Washington Galaxy activated D Grant Warriner from the injured list.  Warriner, the Galaxy’s top young blueliner, missed two and a half weeks with an upper-body injury.  In order to accommodate Warriner’s return to the active roster, the Galaxy demoted D Serkan Mratic to their CHL affiliate in Baltimore and released D Nate Cimino.  Mratic recorded 2 assists and a -18 rating in 22 games with Washington; the 19-year-old Cimino notched a goal and 2 assists over 13 games with Baltimore.
