Klavs Veinbergs is a tall 19-year-old left winger from Latvia who was drafted by the Lightning in the seventh round last summer. Veinbergs came from Europe this season – he was in the KHL system but left due to the invasion – to play in the USHL with the Lincoln Stars, where he found success in the second row. He is now committed to Minnesota State University in Division 1, where he will start next year. We will most likely see Veinbergs at the World Juniors where he will again be running for Latvia.

“We are very proud to announce Klavs’ commitment to the State of Minnesota.” That’s what Stars head coach Rocky Russo said. “Klavs has been a tremendous asset to the Lincoln Stars organization and the Lincoln community. His work ethic, attention to detail and desire to constantly improve make him a very special player and person. We look forward to his continued success here at Lincoln and how he develops at MSU and beyond.”
I… wow… sure!!
The Orlando Solar Bears scored all goals in their first game of the weekend to win 3-0 but lost their next three games to Savannah and North Carolina. [Raw Charge]
“Orlando returns home for three games over the Thanksgiving holiday, hosting Greenville on Wednesday and Thursday (note a special 12 p.m. start time) and Florida on Saturday.”
The New Jersey Devils lost their franchise-record winning streak in game 14 to the Maple Leafs 2-1. The Devils scored three more goals, but all three were recalled for review (two automatic checks and one failed Devils challenge). In this summary you will find videos of all destinations. Were they all justified?
The Wild acquired Ryan Reaves from Rangers for a fifth in 2025.
That #mnwild acquired Ryan Reaves from the @NYRangers in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2025 NHL draft. He has 114 points (54-60=114), 992 PIM and 2,645 hits in 767 games. Since joining the NHL in 2010-11, he has ranked third among active players in hits and sixth in PIM.

According to our models, Ryan Reaves is probably the worst player to play regularly in the NHL, so this should work just fine.

The Leafs acquired Conor Timmins for AHLer Curtis Douglas.
TRADE: We acquired defenseman Conor Timmins from Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forward Curtis Douglas. #leaves forever

I don’t totally accept that because he only managed to play 41 games in four seasons. But it’s a project that could work. He played with Rasmus Sandin for the Soo Greyhounds in the OHL.
