Ice Chips: Maple Leafs recall Benoit from Marlies
Keep updated on all the injury news and roster updates from around the NHL with daily Ice Chips.
Benoit has yet to play a game for the Leafs organization after he was signed as a free agent this past offseason. He spent his first three seasons in the NHL with the Anaheim Ducks, where he appeared in 137 games and totaled four goals and 15 points.
Hall was traded to the Blackhawks on June 26 along with Nick Foligno, and registered an assist in his first two games with the team.
Granlund, 31, was acquired via trade from the Pittsburgh Penguins in August. He did not register a point in his only game with the Sharks.
Peterson has played in 77 games across three NHL seasons, and he scored two goals with eight points in 11 games with San Jose in 2022-23.
Aston-Reese, 29, joins the Red Wings for his fourth NHL squad in the past four seasons. After debuting in 2017-18 with the Pittsburgh Penguins and spending the first five seasons of his career there, Aston-Reese has bounced from the Anaheim Ducks in 2021-22 to the Toronto Maple Leafs a season ago before joining Detroit this year.
In 307 career NHL games, the Staten Island native has 42 goals and 80 points.
Head coach Bruce Cassidy indicated that defenceman Alex Pietrangelo will be held out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.
Pietrangelo is the Golden Knights' captain and helped lead the team to their first Stanley Cup title last year. He suffered an upper-body injury when an errant puck struck him in the side of the head in Thursday's season opener.
Canucks defenceman Carson Soucy skated with the team in practice on Saturday as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
This means there will be seven defencemen skating for Vancouver whenever Soucy is able to return, assuming no other player is moved to accommodate.
The 25-year-old defenceman was placed on waivers yesterday and was not claimed by another team. He will be sent to the Bakersfield Condors of the AHL - he played in 30 games with them a season ago.
In 53 career NHL games, all with the Oilers, Niemelainen has one assist.
It will be the same lineup as their season opener for the Wild, with Filip Gustavsson in net.
Gustavsson posted a 41-save shutout in their season-opening victory on Thursday.
The Blues lost their season opener in a shootout against the Dallas Stars.
Robinson has been with the Blue Jackets for each of his seven NHL seasons. He has 37 goals and 81 points in 260 career games.
