DiPietro was reassigned from the active roster to the taxi squad Thursday.
EDGE Analysis
The 22-year-old DiPietro was demoted to the taxi squad upon the return of Thatcher Demko and Jaroslav Halak from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols. DiPietro stopped 14 of 17 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to St. Louis. He is unlikely to make a second NHL appearance as long as Demko, Halak and Spencer Martin remain healthy.

Evander Kane

Thu 1/27/22 4:47 PM

Kane and the Oilers agreed to a one-year deal with a $2.1 million cap hit Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
EDGE Analysis
Kane was placed on unconditional waivers earlier this month by the Sharks and went unclaimed. The veteran winger hasn't played yet this season due to various off-ice issues over the last year. Once he joins the team, there's a good chance that he'll get a top-six spot next to either Leon Draisaitl or Connor McDavid. Kane tallied 22 goals and 49 points with San Jose last season.

Vladar was not the netminder for Calgary's recent 7-1 victory over St. Louis on Monday. The Blues have been excellent at home this season, posting a 16-4-2 record while averaging 3.82 goals for and 32.1 shots on goal.
