Transactions

  • The Minnesota Wild organization appears to continue to struggle with goaltender injuries.

Nothing has been announced officially, but I pieced it together over at The Third Intermission.
  • Let’sGoAmerks.com’s April Fool’s prank below wasn’t such a stretch after all, as they actually DID have to call up a goalie from the CHL. They’ve summoned Miguel Beaudry from the Rapid City Rush. (LetsGoAmerks.com)
  • Toronto Marlies beleaguered goalie, Justin Pogge,  was once again called up to the Maple Leafs. (Toronto transactions)

About The Author

Heather Galindo

I cover the AHL Houston Aeros for ProHockeyNews.com, which has focused my passion for goaltending on minor league goalies mainly in the AHL. To stay abreast of every last drop of AHL goalie news, follow me at @InGoalMagAHL on Twitter while the big news, analysis, etc. will be posted here at InGoalMag.com. I was so inspired by watching the goalies here in Houston a few years ago that I went out and learned to skate and play hockey in order to become a goalie myself. So far I'm still more sieve than goalie, but I've never had more fun being so terrible at something!
