NHL Today: Wild Day Of Trades; McAvoy Suspension Upheld



Good morning, my name is Andrew Fantucchio. It’s Thursday, November 9, and here’s what’s happening around the NHL today.

Wild Day Of Trades:

The Minnesota Wild made a pair of trades on Wednesday.

First, the Wild dealt Calen Addison to the San Jose Sharks for Adam Raska and a 2026 fifth-round draft pick and then acquired Zach Bogosian from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a 2025 seventh-round pick.

In theory, the two trades should supplement Minnesota defensively, as they’ve struggled early on this season in their own zone.

The Wild owns the NHL’s worst penalty-killing unit and is allowing an average of four goals per game.

McAvoy Suspension Upheld:

The Boston Bruins will officially be without Charlie McAvoy as they take on the New York Islanders tonight as he serves the final game of his four-game suspension.

McAvoy lost his appeal case yesterday of the NHL’s decision to suspend him for hitting Florida Panthers defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson in the head on Oct. 30.

Eberle Sent To Hospital After Beign Cut By Skate Blade:

According to a report from the Seattle Times, Seattle Kraken forward Jordan Eberle was sent to the hospital after beign lacerated in the leg by a skate blade during the team’s practice on Wednesday.

The injury is being described as a “deep cut” by Kraken general manager Ron  Francis near Eberle’s quad muscle.

As a result, the Kraken have called up their top prospect, Shane Wright, to take Eberle’s place.

Yesterday’s Scoreboard:

Senators: 6, Maple Leafs: 3

Panthers: 4, Capitals: 3 (OT)

Golden Knights: Kings:

More From National Hockey Now:

Carolina: With the Carolina Hurricanes lineup in flux, Brady Skjei is providing some much-needed consistency.

New Jersey: The New Jersey Devils are running thin on the backend and may need to look to the trade market for reinforcements.

Pittsburgh: The Pittsburgh Penguins could be without starting goalie Tristan Jarry for some time, so where do they go from here?

Washington: The Washington Capitals added Nicklas Backstrom to their long-term injured reserve list.

Boston: Updates on the Boston Bruins injury report ahead of tonight’s matchup with the Islanders.

Florida: Sam Reinhart scored the OT winner for the Florida Panthers last night against the Caps.

Chicago: The struggling Oilers set an example for what not to do as the Chicago Blackhawks attempt their own rebuild.

Colorado: Turning point: Alexander Georgiev’s save turned the tide for the Colorado Avalanche.

Nashville: What’s the problem with the Nashville Predators? Look no further than their most recent loss.
