- Ex-Terrier Kevin Schaeffer, who began the season at the Senators' Binghamton farm team, then spent a while with ECHL Reading and now is with the Bruins' affiliate in Providence, had his ECHL rights traded to Phoenix.
- Chris Dyment returned to Trenton Devils's blueline after an injury that had sidelined him since the second week of the season. The return of Dyment, who is team'captain, helped make expendable Dan McGoff, whom we reported had been traded to Stockton.
