NHL Moves: McDavid, Rattie, Copley, Murphy, Di Giuseppe

As originally reported by the CBC, Connor McDavid has been eyeing a February 2 return to NHL action with the Edmonton Oilers.  This has been confirmed with the news that McDavid has been called up from the AHL by the Oilers.  McDavid had been on a tear in his rookie season, scoring 12 points in 13 games before suffering a broken collarbone in early November in a game against the Philadelphia Flyers.  Here are some additional recent moves in the NHL:
  • Ty Rattie was called up by the St. Louis Blues along with teammate, goaltender Pheonix Copley, as reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  Rattie was sent to the Blues' AHL affiliate Chicago Wolves to get some game-time in during the extended All-Star break.  The native of Calgary, and second-round draft pick of the Blues in 2011 has seen eleven games of action at the NHL level this season, notching five points (3 goals, 2 assists).  Copley was called up for Blues' goaltending assistance as Chicago received goalie Jordan Binnington from St. Louis recently, and Jordan has been getting some playing time in.  
  • The Carolina Hurricanes have recalled Ryan Murphy and Phil Di Giuseppe according to the Charlotte Checkers' team website.  Murphy, the number 12 overall draft pick in the 2011 NHL draft by the Hurricanes, has excelled with Charlotte, putting up 16 points in 22 games.  The defenseman has spent some time with the parent club previously this season as well, notching four points (all assists) in 18 games.  Di Giuseppe, who was taken with the number 38 overall pick in the 2012 draft by Carolina, has also played in 18 games with the Hurricanes this season, and has picked up 8 points (3 goals, 5 assists) in the process.  The left-shooting winger has also been strong at the AHL level, contributing 18 points (8 goals, 10 assists) in 25 contests.
