NHL officials are transferring 2 players who have been in their AHL affiliates for the past month.
One is forward Cody Larkin, who was assigned to the Rochester Americans.
The other, defenseman Adam Larsson, who spent most of the season with the San Jose Barracuda, is also moving to the American Hockey League.
Larkin, 28, is from Burlington, Ont., and has spent most last season with London of the Ontario Hockey League, where he has two goals and two assists in 21 games.
Larsson, 24, played for London of a Western Hockey League (WHL) team last season, but was waived by the club last month.
The 6-foot-2, 201-pound native of Burlington, Ontario, spent time with the Chicago Wolves of the American Development League (ADL) this season, where his goals and assists rank second in the league.LARSSON: He’s been a guy I’ve been a fan of for a while, but this was a tough decision for me to make, especially with the circumstances.
I wanted to make sure I got a team that I felt would be a good fit.
I felt like the AHL had an opportunity to be a big part of it.
