Also sent down were defensemen Ben Blood, Mark Borowiecki, Cody Ceci, Fredrik Claesson, Tyler Eckford, Daniel New, Troy Rutkowski, Michael Sdao and Chris Wideman; forwards Corey Cowick, Jakub Culek, David Dziurzynski, Derek Grant, Wacey Hamilton, Danny Hobbs, Mike Hoffman, Ludwig Karlsson, Darren Kramer, Jim O'Brien, Andre Petersson, Shane Prince, Matt Puempel, Buddy Robinson, Cole Schneider and Mark Stone; and goaltenders Scott Greenham, Andrew Hammond and Nathan Lawson.

In addition forward Curtis Lazar, the 17th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, was returned to his junior team, the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
